Met a buddy on the beach this morning to see if the specks or Reds had "thickened" up yet. It was slow at first and pretty discouraging. We did a good bit of walking but eventually found a couple small troughs with deep water. These holes were small but held a lot of fish and between the two spots and the two of us we beached 17 Specks, 2 Redfish and 1 Whiting. The Whiting actually ate a Rat-L-Trap which is a first for me. Most fish fell victim to the Unfair Rip N Slash.

The action died off sharply once the tide starting pushing in. All of the fish were further out than typical and it took a very aggressive retrieve to get strikes. The bite was completely over by 8:00.

Nice fish (as usual).... I like the blue tail- don't they look nice when they're lit up? See you tomorrow! Got a couple reels for you to take care of :)

Nice haul! Never really fish from the beach, what kind of conditions do you look for to have success fishing artificial from the beach? The Rip N Slash is my favorite!

look for troughs and washouts in the sandbars off the beach... they will hold fish typically...
