Time: 1:30 - 3:15 pm

Location: New Jersey Beachfront

Tide and Weather: Dead Low 12:38 pm, Partly Cloudy, Air Temperature 39, Water Temperature 48, Light ENE Wind, Moon 1% Visible

Catch: Thanks to tips from my friend Jeff, I managed 3 short striped bass. With dead low at 12:38 pm, there was hardly any water on the inside. I ended up crawling out on the jetty tip and throwing back at the beach, fishing the hole and rip on the south side of the rocks. The fish ate a Vision Eel, a simple teaser I tied, and a Red Gill teaser. Two fish were part of a doubleheader. The other fish took the Red Gill. That fish came off when I grabbed the leader. I also saw some surface activity, but it only lasted about 10 seconds.
