    Hit Eglon and PNP Thursday mid-day and Today early AM. Nothing doing at either site. Saw one fish caught Thursday, none today.

    Hit PNP early AM on the opener, the beach rapidly filled with guys using various techniques, herring, flies, gear of all sorts, also there were like a gazillion boats all around the point, it was very amazing, wow, I've never seen more boats on the water than guys on the beach but I swear it was 2 to 1. In the 3 hours I was there I saw 2 fish landed off the beach and one other one LDR by a guy using herring, I got a touch by a larger fish (larger than the 6 to 8 inch dinks that were hitting) and as far as the boats went I never saw a fish landed not to say there weren't any but judging by how quick the ranks thinned the action wasn't all that good. My best guess is there really weren't many fish about or perhaps they were in shock frightened by the sheer immensity of things splashing and flashing all around them where just a day before they were happily feeding.

    I was there today on a boat. Nothing for me & I didn't see any landed. Not a total waste as it was a gorgeous day.

    I went to PNP this morning. Large fleet along with many beach casters. I fished through the tide change and never saw a fish taken. I was told that there were a few taken before 6 am but of course I arrived after 6.

    On the water at PNP shortly after 5 on both mornings. I saw two other fish landed by gear guys otherwise, in two mornings PNP only produced a a 4# wild coho, a few chases and a sore arm. Ditto on the lots of boats. I can only imagine that kind of traffic drives the fish deep or somewhere else.
