Pier or surf ? Read about the beach restoration and am familiar with what that does to fishing..............has the water stabilized enough for anybody to be catching or should I look somewhere else ? Heading down Saturday for a short trip.

Still biting in surf

I fish Garden City surf and has been fair lately. Small pompano,stingrays,a few spots and some whiting. I don’t believe the sand dredging has had any long term effect on the fishing.

They didn't go much past Yucca Ave/Georgetown County line. I caught plenty of fish while I was there, a couple miles south of GCP while the dredging was going on.

Summer can be slow but of course there are some pompano and whiting around in the suds, with scattered red and black drum. Big Spanish like the hot water in July. Good time to get a 5 lber.
