While we piss/moan over photos of fish on the beach, please remember on this July 4 weekend it’s guys like this that allow us to do so.

Went out and tried to beat the holiday clowns today and had a mediocre day on the fluke grounds on the kayak. Lot more bait showing up that’s for sure. The cownose rays have made their presence. Seen some big ones in huge groups in the RB. Water was 75 end of outgoing. That’s when the summer doldrums start to kick in for me and when we all start gearing for pelagics. Gonna try some new water spots from here out and try some new tactics. Happy 4th everyone!!

Yes. Cow nose targeting begins!!

 

i was at the beach today. Absolutely mobbed. Had the kid. Dug some sand fleas for fun.  Just way to crowded.  I was greeted by a bass feeding as i caught a glimpse of it in the wash.   
 

Target time for cownose on light gear.

Pause for a minute tomorrow, count your blessings

Saw this earlier in the week, from People mag.

For nearly 80 years, World War II veteran and D-Day survivor William "Willie" Kellerman hadn't received official recognition of his sacrifices due to a paperwork error. That changed on Tuesday, when the 97-year-old was presented with a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and Prisoner of War Medal by Gen. James C. McConville, the Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, at Fort Hamilton Community Club in Brooklyn, New York.

Good Job Mr. Kellerman. As you said without them, things could be a lot more different.

 

Now back to the bitching.

Was pleasantly surprised at the conditions out there this morning.  Was expecting flat low water but the surf was rolling some nice white water in spots.  It was rather chilly and not as crystal clear as it has been but looked fishy.  Made the walk and started out July on a high note.  Found 6 with a 28, a 30 and a 31 incher in the mix.  Back out on Monday.

 Got a fat 31" outfront incoming today. Missed 2 others. Super conditions, very easy to read clean water in moco.

As @KrocFoot said, super conditions out there this morning in the low water.  Guess we must be seeing a bit of the swell from the tropical storm cause the surf was rolling at times.  Water has warmed and is back to gin clear but still not seeing any swim bait anywhere.  Found 7 with 3 at 27 inches, all humanly release swimming away happily.  They asked not to be photographed so I obliged.

No photos, it didn't happen! Nice try.

BTW, Happy 4th.

It's a 7' 7" medium heavy fast.  Very light weight and great for the class of fish we normally catch.  Works well for tossing light stuff like the bugs.

Cape May County. Back bay in kayak. Water very dirty and to the touch still somewhat chilly ( near low tide). Bigger fish last couple trips seem to only want gulp shrimp for me. The two below not safely released
