Surfperchin’ II.


Sun and wind on a Saturday morning; that this spot is exactly one hour from my home is not bad at all…It’s become Lusi’s favorite new beach.

The baby Barred Surfperch were out in full effect again but I managed to score two decent ones for the pan.



I’ve been fishing.

Typical surf rig:

St. Croix Wild River rod, 8’6″ Fast Action, 8-12#. (Favorite rod ever).

Shimano Sedona 4000FB reel w/10# mono. (As about a nice of a reel as I’ll take in the surf and sand).

Carolina rig, 3/4 oz. egg sinker/bead/swivel.  4′, 6# flourocarbon leader.  #4 Owner Mosquito Hook.  Gulp! Sandworms.


Damp and Dark.

It was supposed to be an overnight but camp was so damp, dark, and cold there was no chance of a warming fire.

So I kept walking long into the night.

It was all quite alive and full of energy, as was I.
