A buddy and I will be fishing A I Saturday, maybe Sunday morning (if the food and beverages don't run out). We always try to make it down this time of year for the bigger blues - end of October, beginning of November. Reading the board, looks like they haven't shown yet.

We'll be in an older bright red CJ ragtop with a surf rack. If any of you are down that way, stop and say hello.

I'll post a report with pictures (if I can figure it out and if there's anything to take a picture of :rolleyes: )

Make sure you get some FRESH bunker, it helps alot. Water temps still not optimum yet, but could mean fishing later into December, which may be a good thing. Caught lots of shark and skate yesterday, some blues are around and I had a striper what looked to be every bit 30" plus throw the hook on me in the wash(been cussing him and me out ever since).

Be down again some time next week.

Have Jeep will travel.

What time Thursday? If late morning, stop by Kool Ice, and pick up a flat of fresh (usually in between ten am and noon, and let me know, or I'll have to get the "fresh frozen at about 4pm yuk). I'm figuring either Thursday evening through late Friday afternoon early evening, or early Friday morning through the same. Have to workk Saturday at 7:00am. Transfer did come through early, so now work is about a 30 second drive, bad part is now I can't hit Kool Ice during lunch to pick up me bait. By the way, barefooted most of yesterday, dang it was a pretty day there, and evening though brisk, not unbearable, and a strange "red glow" in the sky, and I gots to get down quick and get me a striper, so I can get that last SOB outta my mind. :)

Have Jeep will travel:D

Northern Lights

Nice report Shaggy! I think that red glow was the "Northern Lights" the news report said they could be seen by the naked eye away from the city..and you were definately away..did you need waders..doing some surf fishing sat. and sun. would rather wear shorts if possible.

Pulled out the waders after the sun started to set. From 5:30 am to about 4pm though barefootin', and it was great considering the time of year it is.

Thanks for the heads up Shaggy. I just stopped by Kool Ice and picked up the bunker, iced them down good. I won't come this way tomorrow morning so it was a now or never thing for the bunker. We're also taking peeler, spot (although it didn't look to hot in the cooler), and mullet.
I'll post how it goes either way.
