I havent seen rocks for nearly 10 years down here. Everything got filled in then they did the re-nourishments. After a few targets in those rocks id have to take a lunch break. Even kicking wet sand in here ive had calve issues. Straining those mussels rarely used i guess. Nice finds.... well deserved.

You see Dew... no one likes hunting those spots.. everyone loves the clean sandy beaches.. I choose to hunt the harder spots because most won't... scoops are replaceable... I beat the crud out of my scoops.. if that is where the old gold and silver is... that is where I will be hunting...

Your previous question... most of targets were deep they had to be for others to miss them I only heard them in PP mode... there is still tons of targets there but Covid stopped me from going back after they closed the beaches to everyone... I'm hoping they remain open this winter or I will need to find a new hobby

Looks like a lot of work but I'll bet it was still a fun hunt- congrats on all the oldies and silver. Earlier this year I hunted a drained lake that looked a lot like that beach of yours. Lots of targets in the rocks so I agree that many people don't want to hunt there.
