Default Perdido Beach this morning

Lots of wind and sand colored water tide going out. Lots of bites. Caught 5 or 6 spot pretty small fish, 2 decent whiting but lost one at the beach.

Fish were biting but I had trouble keeping them on the hook. Suggestions? Using 1/0 hook double dropper rig with flea fishbites tipped with small shrimp pieces. At one point fishbites alone were getting hit.

Thatís what I used. Circle sea eagle claw hooks. I must have had at least 4 fish on only to lose them before reeling into the shore.

If you want to catch them go with small gold j-hook. The problem is they take them pretty deep by the time you tell if you had a bite. We held our rods so the fish werenít hooked deep. Whiting, croakers, 44Ē ray, cats and small pompís.

Alumacrafty-
I thought 1/0 was pretty small already but I was missing bites and/or they were definitely hooked but became unhooked while reeling them in rod held high to keep consistent pressure on.

Switched out the hooks to 2/0 and used fishbites only flea type today in rough surf.

Landed. Pomp and two whiting but the bird grabbed one. Plus two croakers.

I assume you mean FRED, the Great Blue Heron.

Glad to see he's still around stealing fish.
