Default Another quiet pre-work fishing trip

Long night last night, a few too many beers but some how I still opened my eyes a 5:15 so I figured what the hell. Got to the beach around 6:15 and ran into the usual suspects, including my buddy Bill already working the jetty. Also meet Colin from the averageangler.com. He had the only Bass this morning, caught it before first light while I was still nursing my hangover. He snapped a few pics and was nice enough to post only the flattering ones.

He has a pretty cool blog if you want to check it out:

Cool pics! I see you guys use stripping baskets; don't see that where I'm from. I suppose they're necessary because it looks like you're shooting alot of line judging from your back cast angle, am I right?

The wind was kind to me this morning. Working about 45-55 Ft of line outside the tip and shooting another 45-50. You can't really fish without the baskets. Fishing on the rocks or the surf with all that line at your feet is a disaster waiting to happen. I can usually cast 80-90ft under neutral conditions but with a west wind over my right shoulder I looked better than I actually am.
