    Boy, it was tough out there. I fished the incoming tide from 4:30 to 6:30pm on Saturday for one missed bite and a tiny yfc, maybe 7 inches. After that, salad appeared from nowhere covering most of the shallow(2-6ft) zones and collecting in the holes, trenches and rips. Found it still there in the morning today, so I walked about a mile down the beach to the San Marcos creek mouth and fished the last bit of incoming tide, through the slack, and the start of the outgoing. For about 3 hours total of fishing today I managed a micro sand bass.
    Lures/Rigs:
    C-rigged gulp sandworm
    C-rigged big hammer perch grub
    Lucky craft surf pointer(anchovy)
    2" New penny gulp shrimp-drop shotted
