HI. As promised, here is my surf report for today. Headed out to Princess Bay beach on the south shore of Staten Island to fish the last two hours of the incoming and about an hour of the outgoing tide. There was a fairly stiff inshore wind when I got there but died out about an hour later. My surf bag was loaded with goodies and I used them all. Started with tins followed by bucktails, poppers and swimmers. During my last hour I clipped on a 6.5 inch yellow eye needlefish and bam!--- A 25 inch short, fat bass. After a quick release ( thank you single hooks and crushed barbs ) I headed home as happy as a pig in s---t.
