My faith has been restored in the surf.



Started off at the SA river channel at 6:30ish. No joy there.
Started walking north, rips looked good- nothing, troughs looked good-- nothing, nervous water looked, good nothing.
I was thinking - well I must suffer for the art of fly fishing in the surf. the 8 :45 it started.
3 big hits but no joy, then.
First fish landed.

Then 3 casts later.

Then the next cast.

I am beginning to really like this spot!
Well then a 16 inch wide Bat or sting ray. Had him almost to the land he rolled and I saw the fly in his mouth. WOW fair caught.
Next big wave and he was off. OK by me if it was a Sting Ray I really did not want to meet- up close.
And about 10 minuets later this guy hit HARD!

And then it was over by 9:30.

I think I will try this again next week.

No perch? Well ..... still nice going, Mark. It's been years since I've caught a spot fin croaker. I'm sure you threw it back, and it's still there, so I'll need GPS coordinates. Just text me those. Thanks.

wow mark!

that kind of day would restore my faith too! you definitely found a honey hole. interesting how you caught the "exotic" surf species but our perch friends are weirdly absent. great job
