    Hit TP this morning got there at 630. Was going to try same tactics as yesterday at IB. When it got there the beds were in full force so I switched hooks and used my handmade sandcrab digger. Lots of small ones with some medium to bigger ones. Put a couple in my handy dandy Gatorade bottle. I started surf fishing at the end of dec so this was my first time seeing and using sand crabs. After a couple misses (im getting bad at this) I finally was able to pull in a small one. No other takers on the sand crabs and my digger was starting to hurt from digging. Switched over to the LC cherry berry and was able to land another short hali. Water was fairly clear, probably 85-90% of my casts had no I grass. Crowds were definitely there when i left at 1030

    So true... I don't target them much, but I have many hundreds of shorts with only a few legals...
    At least you got a couple of fish, better than I've been doing...
