Will this be like a vacation or a few hours here and there as you have to work?
St Augustine pier is super shallow at low tide and probaly not more then 6-7' at high tide.
Flagler pier to the south was shut down yesterday.
Jacksonville pier is good to go but about 40 minutes to the north.King fish after 1pm and tarpon the last couple hours before sunset.
The end of August is a good time to fish,the mullet run hasn't gone full blown but there will be plenty of fish to catch.
Pompano,lady fish,jacks,whiting,blue fish,flounder and sharks of all sizes.Tarpon will be in the pogie pods right on the beach.You may even get into a few over sized reds if the mullet are running good.
There are probaly more different kinds of fish caught in the surf and from piers from mid August thru the end of Sep.
A good hurricane can change everything though.
