    I found a quite a few sand crabs yesterday including one soft shell and one with eggs. The soft shell converted to a small leopard shark in less than 10 mins. The sand crab with egg got bit, but it didn't stick. The 2nd leopard and croaker ate hard shells.

    A young kid and his mom were standing next to me when the croaker hit like a freight train. With mom's okay, I handed off my rod to the boy and he did a fine job reeling it in. Mom proudly got the action on video and both were all smiles.

    First croaker of the year! RAT Beach 20 Jan 22.jpg

    Good to hear somebody is getting some action on the winter sc's with no roe. The few I've found on SD beaches, no interest. Kudos on letting the kid bring in the croaker; might have made a future angler.
