    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.

    Didn't even know he was on till I tried to roll cast my sink tip to the surface! Come back when you gain 15lbs lil guy.

    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.
