there aren't many years when you can go out on feb 8th and fish in a confident manner. there are still good number of fish on the beach so if i am going to turn any plugs or tie teasers i have to make myself quit for a few weeks.
I got a few days coming up, been prepping rods and reels for two weeks, relining and greasing the reels, and adding wax to my rods. I've also cleaned the grip and butt sections of my rods , lightly sanding the grime off the cork grips, and magic erasering the foam eva grips. Hope the weather hangs in there.
