Wen't out today around 6:30 in the morning to try the surf and the bite was good, caught a bluefish, some whiting, and a BIG skipjack. While I was castnetting bait, I was constantly catching baby pompano so I'm sure there are bigger keeper pompano out farther. The bite slowed so I went for a swim and a blacktip swam right under me so be careful if you decide to go for a swim. The water finally cleared up too after all that rain too.

I just bought all my snorkel gear so I could start spearing in the sand bar, how big was the black tip that you saw? That would be pretty cool to see.

What was the reason for the purple flag this weekend ? It's usually jelly fish but just wondering if it was something else.

Wen't out again yesterday from about 4 o'clock in the morning until 9 o'clock and caught loads of fish. I caught a limit of whiting, 2 bluefish, 8 pompano, tons of catfish, and a blacktip shark. The whiting, pompano, and cats on live sandfleas. The blues and shark were caught on 5" croakers caught in the castnet. I can tell you that the sharks are out in full force right now. I have caught 4 over the past week. If you get a big bait past the blues a shark will take it in no time.

I went out in my kayak the other day and there were tons of jellies a little further out from shore. They were HUGE too. I think they are called moon jellies.
