Made it to Tokeland around 8:00AM armed with a days worth of wages in sand shrimp. The perch fishing was ok with 9 keepers caught between two of us in about a 3 hour stretch,casting off the beach.
The hard part is having the patience to wait for a hard strike and not set the hook on those pesky little bait stealing bullheads. Make sure and take hooks big enough that they can't get them in their mouths and elastic thread to keep them from picking it apart. You'll need to check your bait often for crabs stealing it also. I found that by putting the lead 3 feet below a three way swivel and a short dropper to the bait, it keeps it up a bit off the bottom and helps with both the bullheads (sculpin?) and the crabs. Surf perch in the pan, life's good. God Bless.
