    I fished the beach this weekend, and at one point the rip was off the beach about 100-110 ft. Two guys camped out on the point repeatedly throwing a fly out, maybe 60 ft at best, worked that area for an hour without touching a fish.

    Soon as they left, I moved to the point and put a sand lance imitation into the rip and in quick succession hooked up with three SeaRuns of decent size. I thought about this thread, and what a difference 40 ft can make. Only fish I caught Sunday morning.
