Pretty good day Cutthroat fishing at the beach today! Started off fishing with a Spin a Lure with no takers. Switched over to a Lil Cleo and got all my fish on it. Had one follow me up to inches away from my feet, successfully landed two, and hooked into a third but failed to properly set the hook and lost him. Two out of four fish were caught casting into a tide rip. All fish were caught from shore without wading, and I have consistently caught more trout this way. Please note that in this photo I held the fish out of the water. You should never do this, and I remedied my error the second after picking it out.
