i have some time to take so i am looking for suggestions as to where i can go for a couple three days to relax & fish. looking for someplace to walk a beach & sling a little line.  i generally go to Marco or Sanibel but i am thinking something different this year......... any ideas???

    I was on Marco this past week, and the fishing from shore suffered from red tide.  Pic below is from Tigertail Beach.  If you are planning to fish from shore I would check FWC website to get status on red tide.  With a boat, on the other hand, you can travel south until you find good water.

    pretty sad sight, it is a totally indiscriminate killer. this is why i am really hesitant to head to that area......

    I got a pair of 80lb tarpon on foot today, south of Sebastian. Really nothing relaxing about that kind of fishing though. Lots of walking.

    Really cool that you're finding adult size tarpon from the beach.  I've been spending a couple weeks on the beaches for fifteen years, and rarely have had an opportunity,  Usually I see them rolling 200 ft out.
