Hit the beach from 4am-9am with some good results. High tide was at 645 today. Once daylight hit blues and Spanish were jumping, tried throwing some metal but no joy. First fish was caught around 5am. Grand total 3 sting rays, 3 blues, 4 whiting, 1 yellowtail (I think that's what its called) and 1 skate. All sting rays were caught on frozen mullet and the yellowtail. Whiting and blues were caught with fresh shrimp on pomp rigs. All were very close to shore. I'm noticing a trend so far this year, so don't worry about trying to throw it far. Doubled up on the blues with one being 17" and the other 16". Biggest blues I've caught out there so far. The bite died off around 815 or so. Most of the action was between 530 till about 715. Tight lines!

Thanks for the report! I’ve been looking forward to seeing them.
Not wanting to get into your turf, but are you fishing on base?
I’m new to surf fishing and trying to learn the game.

Yea, I’m fishing on base. Not my turf. Come on out, ask questions..no worries. We all gotta start somewhere.

Pretty work my friend, I was the guy down from you who got there around 5am, all I managed was one 15 inch whiting on cut bait.

I would put a paycheck on it being a bar jack. Looks almost identical to a juve crevalle jack just without the more pronounced forehead. I've caught them on sabikis, and gotcha plugs on both piers just North and South of that.
