Found a beach that is ripped down to gravel.
It wasn't that way a couple weeks ago.
Amazing how it does that, ain't it?

Snagged a nice little FG 14K out of the piles of rusty iron.

Hasn't been that way in months.

Congrats on the yellow and the silver! Finding sinkers down here isn't much of an indicator most of the time.

Same here in the Bay, here it just means I'm in a area where they fish a lot and lose a lot of that grey stuff..

Yesterday
Not today.
But I saw Rosie parked in my neighborhood today on way to dry sand down the road.
