<span id=ctl00_ctlContentPlaceHolder_ctl00_ctlTopic_ctlPanelBar_ctlTopicsRepeater_ctl01_lblFullMessage>I took my youngest son out for a few hours late this morning. It was near high tide, about rib high surf, strong current from the east, wind was pretty stiff. The slime must have come in with the tide, that with the current, 5 ounces wasn't enough to hold bottom. Hopefully the slime will disappear after the tide changes. Didn't catch any pompano or redsbut the first scoop with the rake got me about 2 dozen fleas. Might try again tonight once the surf calms down.
