I hit the beach multiple times this weekend at all of my favorite spots, not a thing. The current was pulling 5 oz weights up on the beach on Saturday, Sunday was better but still got skunked.



I did try something new with shrimp. I bought some fresh dead before New Years. I knew I was not going to have a chance to use them so I salted them real good with kosher salt for about 8 hours. After letting them sit for 8 hours I then drained all the water. The salt purges all the water out of them. After that I froze them. I used them yesterday and today and they stayed on the hook better than ever. Even in the crazy rough surf on Saturday they worked great. If you do need to freeze some fresh dead to use later, salt them real good first! It works!

Don't get me wrong, it was still a little rough, but the washout looked ideal. If there were fish anywhere they should've been there.
