I fish last night ( all night ) Sandy Point State Park, the surf.

Croakers was ON, anyone who was working with "blood worm" will have a good night at least by my area. I was on squid and shrimp, only pull one ( big guy ) and miss couple of bites. But was a great night and a beutiful sunrise.

hope this west wind changes, it has really cooled down the near shore water temps.

I went out to AI last night and fished from a different location than I did a couple of weeks ago. I used the same rigs and techniques that helped catch some shark on the previous trip. No luck last night. Really was hoping to land a shark but walked away with mosquito bites! I guess that is fishing. How much does the change in wind and water temp affect the bite?

a west wind will muddy the water and cool the near shore waters, therefore making it harder for the shark or fish to find the bait. with an east wind the waves will be higher and more grass will be stirred up but water will usually be clean and produce a better bite.

I finally made it out to do some beach shark fishing this week (thanks to Dave). I'm sorry to say this, but I believe my Jeep has seen it's last day on the sand... Long story.

Anyway, I had the pleasure of fishing with Dave and his wife Tonya, Andrew and his wife Lisa, his brother Mathew, and my nephew Tyler.

The water temps were not the best for sharkin but there was definitely PULLAGE! Mathew landed his first big ray from the surf. It was a was a very nice Smooth Butterfly and Mathew played it like a pro.

Andrew hooked into a monster ray tonight that made it clear it did not want anything to do with dry sand. With the current ripping south and a huge drop off at the first breaker it made things challenging. After over an hour he finally beached an enormous Roughtail Ray. I was impressed with both guys, cause landing either one of those critters is no easy task, especially in those conditions.

I hope to see some pics soon.

Dave, thanks again for hauling me out there!

thanks again guys for everything! my little brother had a blast, my wife Lisa always enjoys the beach, and really enjoyed hanging out with your wife dave.

it was a tough week, i fished for 7 straight nights between ocean city 38th street and AI, put it well over 40 hours, cant' say we didn't give it a try. we did get two big rays though. hope to get back up in a few weeks, keep those reports coming!

here are some pics:

Went on my annual vacation to OC this past week. Went out one evening with some casting gear, but only thing caught was a kingfish by my brother. Later on in the week a few baits were yakked out, no luck. Next day we yakked baits again and pulled in a nice 6'2" sand tiger. It was our first successful shark catch and release, so we were very excited. No luck after that tho.

I'm relatively new to shore fishing. I'm absolutely loving it. On reading all the messages, it looks like rays are being caught on a regular basis. I'd love to pull a ray in. What bait are y'all using?
