DSF’s Summer Surf Fishing Slam Series During Angry Seas
Everyone was trying to fish today and then the ocean decided it wanted some its beach back. It didn’t ask, just showed up shaved about two to four feet of sand off the beach face into high tide. Despite that, there were fish being caught and we have a new arrival.
Puppy drum (black drum) are in the surf, they aren’t big enough to score or keep, they are the yearly little guys. The size of the medium spot you are catching. They get bigger quick, but still not large enough to keep but they are fun to catch. Aggressive feeders on Fishbites, sand fleas , and pretty much everything on small hooks.
The heavy surf white wash area pushed up by waves and wind was holding short striped on a few beaches today. They like feeding in that fast water, lot of stirred up food. If you pay attention you will see them swing through.
Many anglers fished today but only a few scored, and some scored big with a lot of fish. A lot of spot, or any small schooling fish that qualify will stack up points. Bill Orth Damn near filled a bucket with scoring fish. A pile of spot for the dinner table to boot.
Andrew Hansen … “Heading home. 9 Spot, 2 Dogfish, 1 Striper, 1 Bluefish, 2 Kingfish, 1 Black drum. But only 5 fish qualified 🙁 ”
