Anywhere on the beach. The trick is to cast right in the surf in the first trough. Peeled shrimp in portions about thumbnail big on a #6 circle hook. Remember if you cast more than 10' you done gone too far.

I've always caught them at dog park east and dog park west. West is a lot deeper than east right now so I'd go to park east. Sand fleas have always worked for me!!

I don't fish the beach this time of year, but for those that do the conditions are right. Finally. Lots of scalloping developed last week or so. That makes water deep next to beach on the down current side. In addition, most of the grass has gone.

As said, cast close to beach out to about the sand bar...which will be pretty close anyways. Light lines, small pieces of shrimp will do. Whiting great to eat.

Soon too, the flounder will settle down in the same spots early nights, and leave by 9 or so in morning. Can catch on any bait, and soft plastics.
