Default Getting back in the groove

It's still a little early to hit the beaches and Jettys, but with Labor day right around the corner I figured I'd start getting back into my Fall routine. Hit the Jetty by 6AM and shook the rust off my cast. I didn't expect to find any big predators and I was right but the rod was bent most of the morning with a mixed bag of bottom fish.

Great photos, especially of those bottom feeders! I don't fish salt so had no idea what they were, pretty interesting critters for sure.

Thanks Larry, this time of year a sinking line and a really slow retrieve could save you from being skunked.

They're not poisonous, but the Stargazer holds a charge. They'll shock you if you touch the top of their head.
