    matanzas and villano epic fail

    Today me and some friends went fishing. we decided to go to the matanzas bridge. It was beyond windy. It was like fishing in the desert in the middle of a sand storm. then wr decided to go to the Villano pier. To make a long story shot, i think I got wind burn and zero fish in my freezer. Note to self, never bring as much stuff as we did to matanzas bridge. My back hurts from carrying that ***** and will never do that again, well, until I do it again.

    That wind sucks for sure. Not sure how often you fish but a cart is a life saver big time!!

    Small investment to carry all your crap easier if you have room to carry it.

    We got to matanzas around 4 because we had planned to stay through the night there were maybe 5 people fishing off of the bridge but that wad it. Villano was pretty much the same. Just a crappy day for fishing

    i don't know what kind of gear you have but i let things com down a bit weather wise and focus on mantanzas inlet drive on ramp just befor the bridge its simple fishing you can drive on the beach are just park and walk maybe 2 are 3 hundred feet to the beach-- rods and reels are not that inportant as the tide- rigs- and baits are but if you have 2 are 3 rods you are going to need some sand spikes ---weather permitting I can take a 7 ft creek rod 2 hours befor high and work it through the tide change with a store bought double drop rig about $1;50(walmart-strike zone) and a small wired sinker with clam and shrimp you are going to get some whiting some blues for sure along with a pompano are a drum--- that ramp is call the mantanzas inlet ramp across from the fort
