Fishing Report 8/17/2014 Part 1
One decent sized whiting. I got it on the St Croix 10' Triumph Travel Surf Rod. Still a little too much backbone to give the fish much of a chance, but that's the cost of being able to pitch a 2 ounce pyramid sinker out 100'. I actually went out first thing in the morning to the beach just down the road from this one and was casting a shrimp fly in the surf with my Orvis Hydros 8wt lined with an intermediate sink 300 grain line. I didn't see any fish in the surf so I called it quits after 20 minutes, but with this clean up shot whiting, I wasn't skunked!!!
