Finally a little luck in the surf

Almost went zero and three with surf fishing.  Tried three different locations Saturday, Sunday, and Monday - finally hit whiting -  kept a dozen.   Took a gamble today with impending storms and landed a nice red and a few whiting.  Nice to catch something in the surf with the roller coaster temperatures.  My brother cooked up the red fish tonight - good eating!

    Way to keep at it. It seemed like the whiting where everywhere based on the reports. 
    I recently moved here, are do the whiting  come and go like that, I was starting to thing they were pretty steady.

    The little saltwater catfish start moving in towards the end of April. It makes it a pain in the butt to try to weed through all of them. At least, that's been my experience.

    Nice fine eating you got.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    I find the whiting start running as early as February - catch them throughout spring summer and fall.

    True - seems like big sail catfish always tear me up at Matanzas in the summer

    In cocoa beach I used to throw these goofy jigs and catch a lot of whiting.  I tend to catch bigger whiting and also pompano too. It's amazing how aggressive whiting actually are.
    I've been wanting to try these up here I just haven't had a chance yet. I hope the whiting bite stays hot long enough for me to get down to the beach with a handful of jigs.
