Got to my first spot with about 20 minutes left on the outgoing before slack and the incoming. Not much for bait and not much for fish busting. I made some casts, walked around, and then lost a nice popper and Snake Fly on a backcast. I walked around with the light for 20 minutes but its hard to find two black flies in the rocks and I didn't even know what angle my backcast was in.
I moved to the beach before the sun came up and when I could see things were looking good, real good, like perfect mullet conditions. Hard NWN to NNE wind to 16 with gusts that had to go over 20. There was a hard left to right sweep and an incoming tide. By 7 am things were perfect. The only problem was there wasn't much for bait, and what there was didn't have anything on them. The water was clean and the waves
And here's a little gem. Are you like me who uses the toe of the opposite wader boot to get off the non dominant foot wader boot? Well stop that, you do damage either inside or out. I got this boot bug for $3 from a yard sale. You put it down, and with no effort your foot slides out with hardly any manipulation or pressure on the wader, or the inner lining, which becomes torn after a hundred times of trying to wiggly your foot out of the boot. It will extend the life of your wader.
