August always seems to be the true bottoming out of surf fishing here unless you like sharks and stingrays but tonight the evening high tide and clear water provided a few nice summer whiting for dinner. Got these at the end of incoming/beginning of outgoing right at sunset with a beautiful moon rise. I was at the picnic tables and all fish were caught on frozen river shrimp. Tons of whiting under 8 inches right in the wash but these were a good distance past the breakers. They are all 11 to 13 inches and most had roe.
