Single drop rig ......1/2 oz weight.......8 lb line .......# 4 bait holder hook (barbs on back of hook).....peeled shrimp.....thumbnail size piece.....pitch just far enough from shore that you can`t see bottom.....between sand bars that extend from beach.....

Could see the fish while raking sand fleas.......didn`t see any same spot yesterday........needed a little darker water i think.......area was gin clear.....little more surf would help..........there here !

The last time that I fished there, there were at least four washouts or rips at JB. Fish at every one of them.

are there washouts at every boardwalk over there? or do i need to stop and look and then drive more to find one?

i found the best washout i could find when i parked my car and did not get a single bite on shrimp. maybe i should have found a better one?
