Real nice morning on the beach, crystal clear sky, brisk north breeze keeping the surf clean for the start of the ebb. First cast at 05:30, second cast landed a 30" 11lb sweety striper on tsunami plastic. Released a small blue later on, he chomped on a smack-it popper. Birds working on and off a few casts out, saw a few other small blues landed on tins.

First time trying my converted 750 to bailess. Took awhile to get the feel of it but overall it was real nice. Just shocked me to hit the bass on the second cast!

Much older than you but in my pre-boat days I was a maniacal jetty fisherman ( had to get rid of the bail as I fished at night 95% of the time) got tired of winging expensive plugs into the abyss because I didn't open the bail- the manual pick up is great once you get used to it - not only will it be easier but you probably wing out 20% more casts BECAUSE you don't waste time cocking/fiddling the bail which inevitably fails snaps back time to time - bottom line more fish opportunity- stay well and go bailess have fun leave a few for me GK.
