Went to the inlet to play with the bluefish. Saw a bunch caught but the south wind made it miserable. Just about everybody left before the current turned. Should be good this afternoon if the wind dies down a little. Don
Went down to the jetty and the inlet had bluefish of all sizes. There were also little schools of bunker running along the rocks to get away from the bluefish.
Went back up the beach to feed clams to the blowfish on the outgoing tide. A few people had bass but not me.
On the way out the sign saying no vehicles was up at 7 so they must be closing the bathing area a week early this year. Don

Chilly day at the beach today. There was a south wind that was fairly stiff but not enough to blow any sand or affect yor lines. Somewhere in between feeding the blowfish I managed two shorts. I've caught a few blowfish on a 6/0 hook but if you're going for them you would probably use something small like a number 1 hook.
Fluke season starts this Saturday with a 5 fish limit at 17.5 inches. There have been some nice ones caught this week by accident. Don
