I really noticed it at the point across from 55th place, where they extended the sea wall for the new house. It was an outgoing tide, but water was ripping *in* around that point. I caught the only non dink of the day in the eddy. After landing and releasing the fish, I looked up to try that spot again, and now the water was going out!
I have never seen that before. I watched it for a few minutes and it was regular. It had to be swell surge. I definitely felt it while trolling. I was kicking at a steady pace, but my speed went up and down as the surge came and went.
Like I said, there weren't any noticeable waves, just changes in the tidal flow. I thought it was really odd.
It wasn't until I got home and saw the news about the heavy swell that I put it together.
Always something new!
