  5. Details: Blue Fish

    Stringer of blues I caught on the boat, we rolled up on a ton of them in a feeding frenzy and as soon as my lure hit the water they would slam it. Ended up with ...more 7 taken home to make some fish tacos.

  6. Details: Blue Crab

    Blue Crab I caught trying to steal my bait. Every cast out I would feel slight vibrations in my line and end up losing my bait. Assuming it was crabs I set out to ...more stop this thievery. When I felt the taps, I tightened my drag and quickly set my hook straight into the crab and reeled him right in. Needless to say, I'm eating crab tonight.

      I thought about it but it was already getting late in the day and I was pretty hungry and free crab sounded about right @Reel_Smooth

  7. Details: Blacktip Shark

    Caught a handful of juvenile Blacktips today. It's that time of the year again after they finish spawning where you can catch a plethora of these little guys. ...more For their size they actually put up a fight and will hit just about any bait you throw in the water. Catch and release so one day I can catch them again when they are fully grown.

  8. Details: Sea Robin

    Accidentally snagged a Sea Robin while reeling in my line today. Hooked him in the side so technically I didn't get skunked haha! He was injured beyond survival ...more so I used him as bait. Crabs cleaned me out all day, but non the less it was a beautiful day on the beach.

    Flashback to the flounder I caught off the inlet on bait shrimp. 18" long, caught on a low tide, sunset, water was calm so tossing on the second sandbar provided ...more results.

    9. tillerenzo 0
