I took all my stuff out of my work car the other day for cleaning and haven't reloaded it yet. I'm probably going to hit it up in the morning.

Edit: Maybe not. Forecast is looking like tomorrow will be a no go.

I had two guys today and we banged out their limits in the surf pretty easy. Lots of trash fish (bluefish, skipjack, spanish mackeral, etc). Quite a few dinks. Pretty fair number of 18-20" class fish.

The guys I had needed all the help they could get so we threw shrimp under corks. They ended up with 1 keeper red too. It was pretty nice. I think tomorrow will be good.

I saw a huge shark up in the surf too. Huge like at least a couple hundred pounds. I got a real good look at it. And sure enough one of my guys hooks a trash fish and it eats it. Spools him, headed for Cuba at a steady pace.

A bit late but Sundayís fish box from Calcasieu. Water was really fresh and high. Had a blast chasing birds, prob threw back 30 trout that were within a inch of legal so was still fun. In other news I really need a boat.

I hit the surf about 10:30. I started in the bay. Wasn't sure if the surf would be fishable today or not but it flattened out nicely.
