Fished down at 19th on Pensacola beach yesterday, didn't really put much effort into it. Only fished 2 rods.

Lost a nice pompano right at the beach, caught 9 whiting, a 3' sand shark and quite a few catfish. The sandfleas were more abundant than I've seen all year. Not giant golf balls either, perfect size. I had several scoops with 20+ fleas.

I did see something that I've heard of, but never seen myself.
I looked up and about 3' from shore, I saw a giant flounder! Probably better than 5lbs... I didn't even think to reel in a rod to get a bait on her, instead I grabbed the sandflea rake and eased out in front of her... she got within 4 feet and gave me the slip, easing in to deeper water. I didn't even bother at an attempt to crush her with the rake. If I had a gig, I could have smashed her!

That was pretty cool.

Fished from 10am to 5pm, bite was steady all day.

If I had my choice I would have fished the incoming tide (8:32am) and fished at daylight.... but the GF wasn't for it. Shocking, I know.

Nice! If you catch a few pinfish, throw one out on a Carolina rig. Lots of bull reds on that east shoal right now.
