I agree, it's August already, way past time for the June grass to go home. Start keeping track of the when it's high tide when you go, on 8-2-2010, we checked for June grass about 6 hours after high tide in the pass, it wasn't that bad. But the next day, fishing while it was high tide in the pass, it was awful! Of course when the surf is up, it'll be stirred up. Maybe fishing when the tide is outgoing and the surf is smooth, you can pick out good times when it's not so bad.

MAke you some sand spikes that are really tall... sort of like makin ur 12/0 a surf rod.. mine are about 4 1/2 feet tall from where reel sits to sand... keep line tight while paddling out (assuming ur yakin baits out) and use HEAVY break away type weights (somthing heavy enough to keep bait still ties to ur line thru swivel with 8-10 lb test so it will break away when shark hits) as long as you keep line tight at all times u dont have to worry about the grass that much. From my experience the grass drasticly thins out past the surf line... maybe that will help. Grass doesnt stop us when were ready to go. only thing that stops us in not havin the bait i want (cudas and kings) lol and being to lazy to go catch the bait.
