North wind is my favorite. Clear water and you can sling lead

Thanks for reply. I know the tide should be coming in so still may give it a try.

I dont like getting sand blasted and this strong north wind will do that to you unless you are sitting in front of some one blocking the wind.

I was at Opal Beach yesterday (strong N or NW wind), and conditions were excellent. BUT the grass was AWFUL....huge wads on every hook, every cast. Not a bite. I walked a fair bit sight fishing several guts, with crystal clear water....nada. Hope you have better luck! Don't leave your sandwhich and drink out in the blowing sand... unless you like a little "crunch". LOL

I was on the island yesterday looking at the water but saw no grass and water looked good. Sight fishing is what I want to do. Who knows I might get lucky and catch something.

One other thing what do you do with fish if no beach cart or ice chest is carried? In sight fishing I was just going to use a bucket to carry my gear in. I guess I could a stringer for fish.

Default Surf Tackle Box

I 'run and gun' for Pompano or whatever and travel light: a white bucket, tackle bag and a rod and reel.

I throw the fish into the bucket. If I have a 'used' lure that I don't want to put into my tackle bag, I hang it on the side of the bucket.

When I get home, everything, including the fish in the bucket, gets washed in fresh water. JMHO C2
