while the surf fishing wasn't the greatest, I did have alot of fun. I guess with the older you get the more free time with family matters the most. I had Ryan at Hatteris Jack, adjust my 525mag with his additonal magnets. It really made the difference. I didn't think he still worked there when I didn't see his old white dodge. I had a great time offshore fishing. And on the way back, while we were stuck in traffic on the chesapeake bay bridge I saw a guy land a cobia that must have been close to 50 lbs. He was fishing in a boat about 150 yrds from the bridge.
