Default Fri Night Jan 23 report

Hit the beach past Portofino about 230 geared up for sharks and pomps. Threw out the pomp rods first with a mix of fresh shrimp and fleas, no luck till right before dark when I picked up two reds a couple inches over slot. About two hours after dark we started hammering the reds, 14 total between 26" and 40". The reds definitely preferred the fleas, 10 on fleas, 2 on shrimp and 2 on cutbait. The 40 incher took a flea the size of my thumb nail on my lightest rod. Also managed one whiting on shrimp. They were in close as well, long casted baits did not get picked up. In the meantime the 12/0 ran hard twice with a whole 8# Sheepshead but was dropped both times. The reds quit biting about midnight and I ran the whiting out on a 9/0 to the deepest part of the first gut, gets picked up at 2am and I land a fat male Sandbar right at 7'. The action really slowed down at that point, the hardheads barely keeping us awake till after dawn when we packed it up and headed home for some sleep.

Will post some picks when I get ahold of my buddy's camera, he was photographer for the night.

Here's the biggest red. We only took video of the Sandbar, but I'm trying to extract a short clip or a still.

Fresh fleas, they're plentiful if you don't mind getting a little wet.
