Got the boat ready for the water and with all the rain I was cleaning up tackle and came across my surf rods and reels, which I haven't used for awhile. It was such a nice day I got some fresh clams and hit the beach down here in Cape May. Beautful night fished 3 hours of out going tide. No wind, nice looking surf, water not bad, but cold. Got two huge skates and a few missed bites that could of been skates. The waders still fit and don't leak. Felt good to hit the beach, for it has been awhile. Usually this time of the year there are more fishermen. Had the whole beach to myself.
