Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our great customers! We are open New Years Day. 7am-7pm!

Nothing to report from the beach Tuesday due to the conditions but we did hear of Bass on Monday. When the conditions improve I expect to hear some things again. We’re starting to receive some of our show orders. Got in some of the affordable Tsunami Trophy II Surf rods. Sizes 8′-11′. Retail anywhere from $79.99-$119.99. We also received more of the HOT SaltX 6000 Spinning Reels!

12/29 Sunday– Good fishing!

Good reports from the Surf again. All schoolies ranging from 18-24″. Small Paddletails, Sandeel Teasers, Sandeel plastics, mag darters, and even gliders! Best bite was first light Saturday but we heard of some in the evening as well. We’ll see how long this continues but if the weather stays like this we’ll have fish for maybe the whole month of January. Sundays weather looks nice!

We’re now on our Store Winter Hours! 7am-7pm Everyday!

12/27 Friday– They’re still here!

We hope everyone had a great Christmas!

On the fishing report front we still have Bass in the surf. We had a decent amount of anglers go out Thursday and report really good action again. Metals, Teasers, Tsunami/Bill Hurley eels, Kettle Creek Shads are all producing. This run may go well into January. We are now on our Winter Hours of 7am-7pm Everyday! If you got some Christmas cash to burn we have everything you need. Even though it’s Winter we are still getting orders pretty much daily. We’ll update the Fishing Report page a few times a week now that it’s winter. We also have some events coming up this winter that we’ll post about in future reports. We hope everyone has a great new year. We’re here for you if you need anything! Pay attention to our Social Media throughout the winter on updates, sales, and events.

Open 7am-7pm ALL WINTER!

12/24 Open Christmas Eve!

For Christmas shoppers! We’ll be open 430am- 2pm Christmas Eve and be closed Christmas Day. We’ll be switching to our winter hours (7am-7pm everyday) on December 26th. We hope everyone has a great Christmas. We got lots of stuff in the past few days if you need a last second gift. We also do Gift Cards! Never expire and you can do any amount!

Still some fish around but the attendance has dropped off significantly so reports are going to be hard to get going forward. Well let you guys know if we hear anything going forward.

12/21 Saturday

Less people out Friday but we still heard of some bass. Not as many as the past few days but they’re still hanging around. The whole weekend looks fantastic if you want to give it a last try. Lights winds and sun both days.

For Christmas shoppers! Our hours of operation will remain 430am-10pm through December 23th! We’ll be open 430am- 2pm Christmas Eve and be closed Christmas Day. We’ll be switching to our winter hours (7am-7pm everyday) on December 26th till April.

12/19 Thursday–Great fishing again.

The fishing remains very good in the area right now. Jim Mathis sent us a pic of a beautiful 32″ Bass he caught down in the park. The Bass are mostly all schoolie size but we are hearing of some keeper size fish here and there. Dress warm and break out a lighter rod. Colder weather ahead but Westerly winds for the next 4 days.

12/18 Wednesday– Really good fishing right now

The run is still going strong if you didn’t put the poles away! There wasn’t a lot of guys out but we had some really good reports come in. Seems the Kettle Creek Shads are getting more attention than metals at the moment. Store regular Marty Farrel reported over 20 bass to 24″ on Kettle creek shads. He also reported a couple shads being bit off! Bluefish??? Wouldn’t be a first to have Blues in December but still cool to see. Break out a lighter rod and go have some fun. We have everything you need.

Lots of stuff came in the past week if you’re looking for a last second Christmas Gift. Here’s a few HOT Christmas ideas with prices: Trailhead Tire Deflators ($59.99), Scabelly Gliders (Starts at $29.99), Tsunami SaltX 6000 Spinning reels ($379.99), Grumpy Sandstorm 9′ Surf Rods ($179.99), StormR Surf Tops ($279.99), Tica 9′ Surf Rod ($95.99), Shimano Plug Bags ($59.99-$79.99), ODM Surf Belts ($99.99) We also do Grumpy Gift Cards if you have a picky fisherman in your life!

12/17 Tuesday– Thank you!

We want to thank everyone that came out for the 2nd Annual Grumpy Santa Charity Event for St. Judes. Huge success and lots of happy faces! We raised over $1400 in 2 days! We had a lot of people call that couldn’t make it but wanted to donate. We’ll accept donations until Friday 12/20. You made us smile and you made a child in need smile. From all of us at Grumpys, THANK YOU!

The fishing remain the same! Lots of small fish up and down but we did hear of some nicer fish Monday. A few close to that 28″ mark. Metal and teasers or the Tsunami/Bill Hurley Eel is all you really need right now. With the way the weather has been I expect this type of fishing to only continue. If you like good fishing and less people on the beach this is your type of fishing.

Our hours of operation will remain 430am-10pm through December 23th! We’ll be open 430am- 2pm Christmas Eve and be closed Christmas Day. We’ll be switching to our winter hours (7am-7pm everyday) on December 26th till April.

Fishing report– Another good morning in the surf. In the evening it was much slower but that was mostly due to the weather. We’ll see what this weekend brings but the fish are still here if you want to fish. Some could argue this is the best it’s been so far this Fall.
