Fished Assateague, MD side early today. The sunrise and high tide were coinciding so why not? Got a strong run at 5:30 am on a bunker head, but he dropped it when I picked up the rod--ANGUISH! At 7:30 this lean fish picked up my sand flea sandwich (with crab flavored Fish Bites) and gave a strong fight. I prevailed, though playing him carefully...I haven't had too many chances this season. I believe the water temps are rising, causing the fish to be friskier on the hook.
