    I wish I knew more about the area to help you out..........I will be going down to St. Augustine/Crescent Beach area at the end of May and that will be a new fishing experience for me.

    well - I think there have been 6 shark bites in the last few months on the Florida Coast
    so sharks are definately in the water !! If you can't catch them on a hook,
    dangle your arms and legs in the water.
    oh - and shuffle your feet when you walk in the surf - sting rays are everywhere and
    leave a nasty wound when you are poked with the barb.

    Last year on oak island, nc a school of pogeys came down the beach i sent my oldest down the beach getting folks out the water i prob caught 200 menhaden in 1 throw of my 6ft net. 1live one on a rod put a 4ft blacktip on the beach in seconds. No body had a clue what was going on. Its not the sharks fault its humans pay attention to whats going on and everything will be ok

    Why? Are pogeys dangerous?

    You can watch the school of (I call them menhaden) and tell if predators are in the mix. Typically you will have blues or mackeral or even cobia and Jack's up top on the school and almost guaranteed if the small predators are up top, there will be sharks underneath

    Fish don't jump out of water for fun, something is trying to eat them, or they are eating something else.

    Hot the big goose egg in Florida fished ponce inlet yesterday and today with no fish on the beach. I did get 2 mullet bit off to the hook but no hook ups. It was so rough i used 6 ounce sputnik sinker to stay still but between the current and the damn seaweed i never even saw the bite. Back to my waters in NC in a few weeks hope my luck changes

    Well dang......that's why it's called fishing and not catching. Figured you would have gotten at least something while you were there. I'm going to hit the flats next weekend and then it will be a month before I make a surf trip.
