2020 was a pretty crappy year all over the world and one that I’m sure we’d all like to forget. In terms of fishing, however, it was fantastic. 2020 presented us with numerous great weather windows and opportunities to land big fish all up and down the coast. Almost every trip I ventured out on would result in good quality slot reds and bull reds, which I was able to land over a 100 bulls this year with 39 of them breaking the 45” mark. The sharks were plentiful from mid March all the way up into the middle of December and I was able to land several (lost more than I can coun’t though haha). Fishing around the fronts in the later half really paid off in a big way. Another thing that really helped this year was the almost complete lack of sargassum weed. I think I only had one day where it was an issue but other than that it was non-existent on the middle coast. Not sure if the guys down south had to deal with it, only ran to PINS twice this year and both times there was none. I had several good friends join me throughout the year for their first time surf fishing and getting them hooked up on big fish was definitely one of the highlights for me, they are all now hooked for life! I was also fortunate enough to meet several new people while down on the sand and hope to meet more next year. Bring it on 2021, let’s see what you got!
