Siesta Key / Venice Beach area
I'm new to this area and was curious what is hitting and where should I go right now. Would like to fish off the beach and any local piers. Also when is the best time of day, bait etc. Any help would be appreciated . I have 8 and 10 ft surf rods with 4000 and 6000 size reels with 30 and 50lb braid. Also have a 7ft ugly stick with a 5000 size reel. For bait I have frozen squid,salt clams and fish bites. Not sure what live baits to use right now. I have some pompano rigs I can use also with 2oz pyramids Thanks in advance. I made the same post in the general fishing topic section was not sure where it should be posted.
