  1. Hey Al. Released 24 bass today from 7 to 9 am all on Ava jigs and savage gear sand eels. Biggest was 31 inches some nicer fish coming thru for December!


  2. Hey AL,

    Crushed it this morning again in the surf! Nasty 25 to 30 knots northeast fish started hitting at 615 am until 8 am red hot. All on black tail ava jigs you had to get to the bottom but soon as you began to reel, whamo! Landed 16 fish and shook off another 5 or so with the heavy surf. Some were pushing the 29 inch mark. Hands were ice cold numb once they got wet! If i wa casting all the time i was trying to warm my hands up probably wouldve had more fish ….
