After a couple of unproductive trips to the beach this fall I needed to do some catching so i headed south to HI to see a buddy 2 weekends ago. Caught  a variety of fish including black drum, puppy drum, blues, puffers and sea mullet. Water was probably 65-70 degrees. While we didn't catch any, heard of pompano still being caught too. Nothing like a few days of that to make one feel better. :)

. I have been thinking about doing some back bay lighter tackle stuff myself. My girls almost 4 and she has been casting in the yard regularly, be a good way for her to get started . Might be tough without a boat tho

A boat of kayak helps because of limited shore access back there once you start getting away from the inlet. But if you don't mind donning some waders or knee boots, and sometimes getting off the beaten path, there are some shore bound locations that can produce. Not really kiddo friendly spot though.

 Sweet light shows both nights though.

I thought I kept seeing stuff streak across the sky out of the corner of my eye. I never did see anything when I was watching for it though.

Kingfisher , I almost forgot. I never have cast plugs at the DSSP, always the inlet. What plugs would you suggest.  I have poppers, striper swipers and some others. Thank's

Nice work PSUfly.  Seeing the fly rod reminded me that I saw a Jeep Wrangler with a plate that said " cape fly".  I don't want to spot burn but it was on a crowded six lane road in an outlet town in Delaware.   He had his spinning rod on the roof and through the tinted window I saw a string from one side of the roll cage to the otherwise and it was loaded with saltwater plugs.  It was a well organized string of beauties.  Anyone we know?

Almost all the typical striper plugs/lures will work at one time or another.  A few I've personally done well with would be tin & teaser, jig & soft plastic, and minnow style plugs.  The trick in Delaware is finding what little structure exists.

As I drove the beach yesterday I thought about the good old days when the beach would be packed the day before thanksgiving....and we would all be catching. It did make for a fast ride off the beach though, only 2 people fishing the whole island when I left......stopped and chatted with one fellow who had no stripers but noted that he had a big hit yesterday but it spit the hook on the way in........

White Wrangler? Has to be the guy I saw at the inlet (Sunday morning I believe) as I was coming off just after sun up. Never saw him before. Not sure if he's a regular or not.

Just stick with the basics. 1/2-3/4 oz bt's, 4 or 5 inch tsunami shad, 5in rough sided fins, and tins. Not made anymore but the vision sand eel accounted for a lot of fish over the weekend. Awesome little plastics.

Rarely fish the point but I would bet on SP's if fishing there with that added sweep and current.

Up your porfile if you ever run into bunker. They do pop up from time to time especially in the spring.
