    The crew at Murphy's Hook House reported on tons of shorts, all over the place. Small profile lures, the Jetty Ghost collection have been great with teasers. They also suggest the Tsunami sand eels, again all these rigs should be fished with teasers. "Fun time fishing, just not many guys out there," is the word we got. There have also been reports of a few winter flounder in the back as well.

    At Murphy's Hook House, Dennis said Monday morning didn't produce anything at all in the surf. "There were birds off the beach, right on the border of Seaside and the Park," Dennis said. "Conditions are awesome, just today wasn't very good," he added. Over the weekend guys using slender sand eel imitations are picking at small fish, and guys in boats marking more fish than they caught. Perhaps a little chill in the air is what we need, as water temps are still a bit high for this time of the year.
