Well, I got my truck back and decided to give it a proper go this morning. I saw there were supposed to be some big swings in the tides today which usually doesn't do well for me. Got there just before dawn and saw there were a number of poles lining the beach but less than last week. Started off with some camo worms until I could get into some good sand crabs. Nothing for most of the morning but then hooked up on the smallest perch I've ever caught while I was digging for crabs with my line out. Decided to give the old lc a shot and still nothing. Went back to the camo worms while crab hunting. Finally got a decent size one and immediately hooked up on a nice spotfin. Found out the hard way they have some mean spikes on their fill plates. Threw another crab out for a bean. Not a bad day overall. The beach was getting crowded by this time as the tide was almost peaked and decided to call it a day.
