OC Surf: Labor Day Weeekend
Fished the south end of OC with bloodworms off and on for about an hour on Friday afternoon. Mid to late incoming tide, strong north to south lateral current, turbulent surf with weeds on every cast. Winds switched to southerly late in the day.
Caught a spot, 7 or 8 inches, on the second cast, which got my kids excited. Every cast afterwards the rod was in one of my children's hands. Lost the bait a few times, but no other fish.
Looks like rain on Saturday, but hopefully we'll be on the sand again Sunday and Monday.
If we get another spot, is it worth sending it back out on a heavier rod/reel combo?
OC Surf: Labor Day Weekend
The rain on Saturday kept us off the beach. Talked to a D Bay crabber at Twisties in Strathmere on Saturday night who said his catch is down this year, but he said the fluke are running and he's catching them in his pots. A local marina owner also commented that his business is down.
Sunday my boys and I fished for less than an hour at the top of the tide with bloodworms. Enough nibbles to keep the kids interested, but we got skunked.
One more shot tomorrow...
