Great report, thanks. Was prepping my surf gear for an early outing Sunday morning to West of Opal Beach and gone ahead of the tourists arrivals to the beach where history shows that is at 11 AM +/- 30 minutes. But, with that report, I guess I'll not waste a load up and trip. I've always appreciated the 'negative' reports and try to do the same. Those reports are just as valuable IMHO as the 'look what I caught!' reports. Thanks Sea Monkey.The OLE Lawn Fishing!
Went to Navarre yesterday evening to fish the surf. Lines were washed on to the shore within about 10 minutes. Casted twice, both times washed straight to shore due to soo much grass. 2 weeks from now? Not sure?
Was great to get out of the house though.
“GET’EM OFF THE BOTTOM”
At Johnson’s Beach today grass and sargassum present but not that thick, mostly broken up. Low visibility and water tasted like it had a lot of fresh mixed in. Current was coming from the west today so that’s not surprising.Was out this morning and hit a few spots from Navarre to just past Opal Beach. The June grass and sargassum were atrocious. I was just throwing a gotcha but it was globs green slime on every cast and there were huge mats of sargassum everywhere. In between the masses it was free floating. Pretty much impossible to fish and the current was rippin'.
Well throwing a spoon yesterday was night and day to my experience letting some bait soak. About every 10 minutes I had to clean off the grass and sargassum. Not a bite but couldn’t hardly tell anyway.At Johnson’s Beach today grass and sargassum present but not that thick, mostly broken up.
