    Fish a little shallower during the fall - winter, say 40 - 50'. They'll be there. Don't forget the patch reefs.

    Thanks - been wondering about that and fight that like everyone else. Got any advise for that condition, should you just stay home and wait for a change or is there a good strategy for that?

    I have caught YTs up to 25+ inches on this simple rig.

    3-4 feet of 15-20lb flouro leader

    Yellow, naked jig of 1/4 oz or less (smaller in shallow)

    Half of a shrimp (whole shrimp out deeper with a heavier jig)

    Toss back in the chum slick, free-line the jig back

    Hang on!

    I had the opposite on Sunday in Tampa Bay and couldn't catch a cold! Wind blowing ENE and current flowing exactly in that direction and strong too, even with an outgoing tide. Was not a good day for catching.
    People use statistics the way a drunk uses a street light, for support rather than illumination.
