Yes they are. I saw several get hooked up on last Monday. Sadly, none were landed due to the usual clusterf---...but the kings are there and bait too. I have a little tip for you if you go. If there's an old man there who has half his house set up on the pier, complete with sun canopy and hogging up the whole western corner with unbaited rods in rod holders...don't let him gaff your fish. Just walk it to the beach lol. That dude is sompin else...

That guy is setup on the north side of Sikes now! I went out there Sat. Morning saw this guy who looked like he was living there, 2 big canopies, half a dozen rods, gas grill and a bunch of other s**t. I walked by and he was on a cot snoring with a radio blasting! If I was a thief, I coulda cleaned house..

Yes, she was with him...I noticed she was there after day light, she was under the canopy sleeping, he was out side of it sleeping...nasty!!!, then a few of their friends showed up and the hogged the entire area where the mackerel were biting..the county should chase this guy out. It looks like he's been there for a while.

The is an man and his wife that are out at Ft. Pickens at the second parking lot. They have a tent, etc, etc. He is a retired firefighter. Him and his wife are great at catching the redfish. They usually have about 5 rods going. They even have an inflatable mattress in their tent.
Nice people, learned a lot from them. I don't think they are the same as the others you are talking about.
