Fished the inlet this morning thinking I was Speck fishing and caught some Taylor Blues.

Waded the sand bar with perfect conditions starting an hour before daylight at the top of the ebb with a light N/E breeze. The lights on the new bridge are a lot brighter than the old ones and put out a light line further away from the bridge so I just waded out a little further on the bar.

Just before false dawn a school of Taylors swam by and were crushing the bait on the top of the water. I was already fishing a 1/2 oz. Mirrolure so I left it on and played with the baby Blues for 20 - 30 minutes.

Dawn came, the Blues went away so I tied on a lead head and grub tail continuing to try and find some Specks but no joy. I stayed until the sun cracked the horizon then gave up and went to work.

Didn't catch what I was looking for but a great morning on/in the water leaving with the smell of fresh fish on my hands and the added bonus of watching the sun rise surrounded by Gulls, Herons, Pelicans and Osprey.

Got out yesterday before sunrise and high tide, surf was rough from the storm up north. Out there for a couple of hours and catch and released the speck and puppy. Yes I did keep the slot for dinner. Caught the slot on the 10’ rod long cast chunk bait, the puppy and speck on tandem rig short cast. Overall a good day good weather good bite even with the wind.
