got back from my week in santa rosa/seaside beach area... not a whole lot to report, but here it goes. as far as bay fishing, did some fishing around the 331 bridge on the south side, between fishing along the shore and off the tip near the bridge spans, i never caught a single fish. I also did some wading off the end of CR283 and Ivy Lane, off 283 I caught one trout at about 18 inches, caught 3-4 catfish, and had one red sky right over my topwater. Oh yeah, and i got a jellyfish sting on my leg. Those sea nettles are thick in that area, surprised i only got one sting. no fish catches wading off Ivy lane.

After the jellyfish incident, i did the rest of my fishing from the beach in the mornings. fishing about 2 hours each morning from about 6:30-8:30am, we managed to catch about 30-40 ladyfish, about 50 blue runners, and 2 pomps. biggest being about 15 inches... all fish caught in the surf were caught on fishbites strips. Never caught a single catfish or shark, which i thought was pretty surprising, especially the catfish.

We also rented a pontoon boat out of destin for some fun and relaxing on crab island. Of course I didn't bring a rod with me and had red's behind the boat pretty much all day on the outgoing tide... figures!

Thanks for the help and input from everyone. maybe next time i'll have a better trout/red bite... and less jellyfish!
