Patience pays...After searching and searching I finally found them.
I was fishing the outgoing and just before I was about to pack it in for some lunch, I found the right combination.
With a strong West wind which shifted to the Southwest, I had thrown everything in the bag and finally got to tossing old reliable-the chartreuse grub. That proved to be the ticket as I nailed 19 schoolies in the 20 inch range with the biggest coming in at 23 inches.
I was able to get Surfacestrike down there in time to get a few of his own. I even watched him nail a double with one on the teaser. That was sweet.
The bite shut off about 30 minutes after low tide.
All fish were safely released.
It sure is fun when you can find success with the light tackle. It was the kind of day that reminded us why we fish.
I did a sweep of the beach and took out a small pile of trash on the way out. When people see fisherman taking garbage off the beach, it gives them a different feeling about surfcasters.
Tight lines to all.
