Haven't been in two weeks because of work and life but there were some nice mullet and pomps around. Plenty of fleas last time I was down too.

Last weekend was a little slow. Friday night had high tide at 8pm so that's when we had the most luck. Monster mullets biting on shrimp. Not much luck on sand fleas but they were A TON everywhere.

Speck water is really clear as of last night. Caught 5-6 quality mullets one was about a pound and a half or so. All on shrimp, fleas were pecked at by pins.

Time to go down give it a shot but looks like ride is low.

Just up from beach and watching kids in the pool.

6 sea mullet in the 12-15 inch range really good quality fish. All released. My surprise catch was an 18 inch speckled trout... Looked like a fat fall fish. All fish on shrimp and flouro rigs.

Thought this would be fun and would love people's opinions on where or how they would fish the beach area I have.

Can't tell if it is a dirt line or a sand bar but if it is a bar I would be fishing in front of the house with the red roof or the one to the left of it.

Definitely a bar slanting out from left to right in picture... Fished just about in front of red roof this morning... Tide was low.

First glance without knowing the area I would look at the close deep water ate the blue house and the red rOofed house. The end of the bar to the right between the blue house and the sandlot, depending how far it is. or the suds a few houses to the left. Also that pic os probably way old and it is nothing like that now

Are you serious?! Oh now that's just cool. I figured it was a stock photo you found. Way to scout a beach. How far is the tail end of that bar in front of the sand lot from shore? I can't tell, 100-150 yards?

Last night was slower with a couple Miller one went about 14 inches... I think se wind hurt. This morning light wind out of sw and tide falling. Cooper I would guess that are is 150 yard or more.. Not reachable with my spinning fear or my lack of skill. Time to stop bitching here and get to some fishing!!

psudukie.... I sent you my pick about the picture with an explanation why and my pick is the small hump on the right with water busting over it for Pomps ..... that spot will only last a few minutes as the tide rises or falls, you must follow the tides and move accordingly .... Good Luck, River

Fish in front of the orange roof house, make sure to fish one really short

Well... Clear water... But ver few fish... Half dozen small whiting a small puffer three short flounder(one on a small swim shad jig), always fun to catch something on artificials.

Wind is again turning sw tends to stir the water here a bit we will see if that helps later on. I am quickly becoming a believer in flouro and circle hooks.

Well last couple fishing cycles have been tougher as the wind is 15mph plus and makes for challenging fishing gir a novice like myself. Still managing a couple smaller mullets. Having sone success swimming a jig in between Bach and sandbar.... Couple short flounder and fairly sure a couple lizard fish are lurking as a couple baits came back tailess.

Mind suppose to go offshore tomorrow and be light on Tuesday hopefully back at it in full force.

You guys let me know if posts get annoying.

Late start tonight close to eight before I got down to the beach. Standard set up flouro and shrimp.

Right off the bat slammed by a solid pomp... Would olive to see what a three ponder fight like... This one guessing about a pound and a quarter. Released unharmed. The other shows a double 20 minutes later the lower mullet was about a pound.

Fun night. Quick shout out to River, he's always helpful and willing to share knowledge. Thanks River.
