So, I threw it back out without the float, and the blues got shredded by crabs. There's definitely sea life, just not what I'm looking for . But I don't feel too bad - with all the fishermen on the beach yesterday, the biggest catch was a 6" spotted croaker.

But I have to say, adding the cocktail blues, really changes the dynamic of the cast. I was lucky to hit 30' yesterday - and that was on a good cast. Worms and snappers, seem to travel much better.
