The “lip” of the beach is a piece of structure formed by turbulence where waves break onto the beach and meet receding waves. This action cuts a drop-off behind the first wave that’s usually not much deeper than a few feet, but it’s enough to provide gamefish a channel to swim in and take advantage of forage tossed about by breaking waves. Sometimes it’s best to work this structure by making diagonal casts. On this trip most of the fish were right up against the beach along the lip. The only thing I could get them to hit was a 6-inch weighted Tsunami Sandeel.
