Fished SPSP today from about 7 through 2PM.

I had better luck meeting a bunch of Pier & Surf guys-- McRae, Long Ranger, Capt. Cupcake, Yellow Ray, etc-- than I did hauling in fish, which were limited to a coupla throwback stripers and a short craoker.. a short croaker, who ever heard of such a thing? Ugh, that kind of day.

I did have one monster pulldown which followed the day's pattern-- hauled in 3/4 of the way in and, by my best guess, the bottom hook on the rig snagged up on somehting about 30 feet off the beach. By the time I had it cleared, I'd lost the fish and retrieved a rig with a bent bottom hook and a top hook stripped of bait.

The upside were some beautiful stripers caught-- saw a few keepers come in between 10.30 and noon, the croakers showed up just as I was leaving, and some gut down towards the breakwater was hauling in a monster rock that Ranger got on tape.

All in all a good day-- but an empty cooler. C'est la vie.
