Out alone this morning. Low tide, coming in. Big fish in the rips - going completely ballistic after my lures. So wild that they would often send the plugs several feet up (vertical) and hookups were difficult. A large Sluggo? Devoured and destroyed in short order.
Lost my cherished Cherry Popper this morning to a (typical) Penn reel malfunction. SNAP - @#$%!
AM fishing continues to be great. PM has been less so.
