I'm trying to figure out where I should fish Friday. I'll be primarily soaking baits, and the wind is predicted to be out of the NNE.

I'm leaning towards either the north end of the resort strip or Sandbridge. So let's hear what you folks think.

Never been to either Sandflea but I looked in my crystal ball and
I see sand and a bridge must be the lucky spot for fridays outing.:D
Have a great day out . I will be out at the Indian River , the Surf looks pretty soupy with the eastern winds were having.

Sandbridge. Even though it hasn't shown much lately, it is a proven spot for them reds you love to chase after. JMHO:)

I did that a few weeks ago using spots... they tore it up too... good luch Sand Flea... fish are smart but, fisherman are smarter... we have all kind of tactics to catch 'em.. we study them.... and they just follow their instincts.

good luck out there...

Long story short, it sucked. I was soaking mullet and quartered blue crabs from 9 a.m. until around 3 p.m. at Sandbridge and caught one blowfish. The other highlight was when I was walking back out of the surf and got nailed by a wave. I completely ate it in the wash and went down face first. The guy down the beach was trying not to laugh but he didn't hold it in too well.

Saturday was more of the same. We fished the oceanfront around 72nd street with mullet all day and didn't get a single bite.

Oh well...sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

The weather was just too pretty and warm. It needs to cool off some more.

NS4D,

I didn't have any better luck either on Saturday. I saw the fish but I couldn't reach them. On Sunday I decided to bring along my 11 foot rod and a 3.5 oz Gibbs pencil popper. I couldn't quite make it all the way to the sandbar were the fish were (all I know is the standard overhead cast...), but I came pretty close. Still, the fish wouldn't bite. A few birds were thinking about hitting the pencil, but decided against it at the last moment. A guy bait fishing with two rods next to me caught only one 20" striper, so I don't feel too bad about getting skunked. Things were just really slow. Heck of a nice day to be out there though!
