Moco Outfront. Visited a popular bathing beach during the afternoon with the flyrod. It was low tide, with far to many distractions and obstacles. Wet wading was comfortable with the clear and warm water. Caught one short flat one that drew a crowd. I called it a day at that point......
Summer is here!

Yesterday I did some wet wading at low tide out front in Moco looking for cuts and holes. I had one micro fluke give chase to an offering in the shallows. More importantly was the abundance of small rain fish/ bay anchovies/ spearing contently cruising the trough. :) Last time I saw any was the friday before memorial day.:dunno:

I drowned some clams and bunker chunks all weekend and only had dogfish and skate to show for my efforts...but it sure was beautiful on the beach!

I took my 9w out to the lake yesterday morning and limbered it out for an hour. My very first time waving a fly rod and I can only say that 1. I didn't hook myself and 2. It sure looks easier on YouTube. I did get to the point where I could lay it out 30 or 35 feet in front om me without getting tangled up.
Next trip is to the beach!

Keep your rod tip down, mend your line to get the fly moving toward you THEN back cast!

Fished my honey hole from 430 to 730. It didn?t disappoint :mgun: the flat ones were stacked like pancakes :D 21 shorts and 1 keep just at 18 inches, had 1/2doz Drag screaming fat ones at 17 inches:) 5 inch gulp white swimming mullet was the bait of choice. Fished slow, making that gulp dance.

Moco Out front west wind at the high tide. The ocean was a lake with zero movement and barely noticeable chop and a small shore break. Water had a brown stained tinge to it.:nervous: No gamefish but the calm water gave away the presence of minute rain fish cruising comfortably along the trough.

Made an evening check on the back RB, and the water was clear, and several of the usual suspects were into large choppers!

I'm invited out on a buddy's boat for a ride around Barnegat Bay tomorrow morning. We will also try to aggravate some fluke and whatever else is willing.
Any suggestions?

I went back to my honey hole today from 5-8. The sea robins were relentless :burn. Tough time hooking up with fluke with the birds flocking.:bash: I did manage to pick threw the flock and end up with 14 short fluke:). Only 1 worth measuring at 17, the rest were cookie cutter 14-15 inches. Ended up with 10 birds. Highlight of the afternoon was a whale pounding pods of bunker.

Hit the surf in SoMoCo the last two nights from about 7:30-9 for a swim and to wet the line for a bit. Last night was great and the water was noticeably warmer with larger waves but less turbulent waters. Started last night off with what I think was an oyster cracker but it was lighter in coloration than I have ever seen and seemed to have wide stripes thatcame to a point and were slightly darker. Hit a white unadorned bucktail right at the lip. Thought I snagged something at first then it came up to my feet in seconds. Finished yesterday off with two short fluke one on the bucktail the other on glow swimming mullet on dropper. Tonight I started with the same rig and got a 14 inch fluke on the bucktail. Then switched to sand crabs because the fluke spit one up and got a lively 17 inch striper.
