Got out at first light this morning, knowing in my heart of hearts that it would, could, and should be slow. The tide was just starting to move so I made my way out onto the end of the rocks in an attempt to find a striper in the whitewater of the incoming tide. I fished one groin for a bit, and then moved to another. Something caught my eye as I looked up from the wash and it was a dead common dolphin.
