Its low tide here, and I now must leave for the beach! Laters! edit: Got one! 2nd cast! One bite, one hookup, one surf perch for dinner. Shoulda quit then. No more bites, even. Tide coming in hard, good little swell producing surf a little larger than I like for surf fishing. Big Momma Red Tail. 13" to 14" class. It was pretty tough surf fishing. I consider myself lucky today. The three other guys I saw down the beach gave up, and walked away skunked. We were all using gear with bait or jigs, not flies. Perch is dead now, on ice, and no longer photogenic. I'm gonna filet it and eat it! I might head back to the beach after the tide hits high, as the shore break and sideways current should have calmed down a bit by then. I needed to huck a 3 oz pyramid sinker on a spinning rod just to get it out over the shore pound to the first good trough, and the current and surf were still too much. But, I found one! That shorebreak and sideways current action makes me want to wait for much mellower conditions before I go after 'em with flies.
