Saturday evening from 5:30 pmtill dark the spanish were hitting at the end of the pier. A mixture of sizes, but several of us got fish in the 18-20" range and up to 3 pounds or so. They have been eating well; it looked like they had been feasting on glass minnows and/or small LY's. I got a half dozen (14"-20"), but lost a couple more nice ones, one at the gaff and one which chewed through 80# fluorocarbon as I tried to pull him up to the pier. It was a nice run after a very slow day.

By the way, the water was clean when the spanish came in. A few kings were sighted, but they didn't seem to be eating.

I wentThursday PMand it was absolutely dead until about sunset and then the Spanish turned on for about 20 minutes. As VS200B said, the red tide might make it a waste of time right now.

I was referring to the red tide... It was one of the most morbid things I have ever seen as an avid fisherman. My buddy and I saw all sorts of fish.
