Not a lot of activity on here over the weekend it looks like. Was everyone out surfing?
It was about waist+ down here over the weekend. Surfed a spot yesterday that I had never surfed. Was completely different than anywhere I have I have surfed down here. Super shore breaky, it was 2ft+, I was on the LB basically doing side/air drops into it. My 9' squirrel fin was catching sand. Got launched like a missile a few times.
Dudes next to me were surf fishing. They hooked something big. Looked over, saw the pole bent in half. About a 1 minute fight and then the line snapped.
Fun weekend though. Nothing to write home about, but it was still nice to get out both days.

Anyone familiar with HHI want to tell me why it's so shore breaky up in Port Royal Plantation? Is this because of the old beach replenishment? They hit the whole east side of the island I thought, unless they just stopped at Port Royal. Maybe it breaks that way because it wasn't replenished. Larger grains of sand I noticed with lots of small shells and rocks.
I know when they dredged the sound, the filled up the entire North End beaches, which is where I go fish all the time, but there has to be an explanation as to why everything south of PRP breaks was further out and has a much more gradual slope, and then up in PRP it breaks like Delmarva.

Just found some info. The stretch of beach that I surfed yesterday was "replenished" in Spring of 2012. So.... that's why it was a nice piece of sh**.

Speaking of scoring. I had told my buddy that I would go crabbing with him yesterday. Then my wife kindly reminded us both that my daughter's cousins birthday party was on the beach at 1:00 yesterday. So, I send the homie on Blue Crab detail for a few hours, while the kids play on the beach and I surfed. By 5:00 or so when we go home, I check in with the homie, and he texts me a picture back of a couple dozen Blues... Winded down the weekend with a blue crab feast.
Double score. And I didn't even have to drop a trap. work smart, not hard. When in doubt, have the homie's gather crabs while I gather waves.

Surfed all weekend...glassy most mornings throughout last week and into the weekend. Had a work meeting early today and wasn't able to hit it this morning...buddy called me to tell that it was waist+ all morning in south Jersey and really fun. To be honest...I was okay with missing it today after last week and the weekend...but man...loving this summer!
