You and the Mrs have been noticeably absent from the flings.  Good to see you back.

Still not much happening this morning.  Great looking water, but still very cold.  The wind shift has happened so the water should start to warm a bit.  Plenty of bunker life out there right in the casting range, but they were happily moving along at their leisure.  Did avoid the skunk with one small bluefish on the teaser.  Tried some bugs with no success.  Hoping the warmer water will get them back on the feed.

Went out front with my daughter for a quick evening hit and she reeled in a couple small fluke. We also had a nice tussled with a ray for a bit on a backbay / vr50 combo for a bit.  That fish was a freight train and laughed at our attempts to stop it.   Watching my 5 year old try and get a single crank on the reel during this was absolutely priceless.

Need a video of that lol.
