Slow trolled pogies and mullets looking for tarpon in the pogie pods. Then trolled two Yo-Zuris. Had one hit on a pogie, caught or broke off four sharks. Saw two medium sized kings free jump, one in 12' of water and another in 16' in front of the red tops off Vilano.
Saw a very large manta ray with a wing spread of at least 14 feet. It was huge swimming along the beach in about 16' of water.
There are a lot of pogie pods along the beaches from 10 feet of water to 16' of water.
“Everyone behaves badly--given the chance.”
― Ernest Hemingway
With bait pods so close to shore this season nothing does surprise me though!
seen rays in less than 2 ft last spring... many moons ago while surfing in Vilano one was swimming toward me in about 2 ft of water and I thought it was 2 sharks coming at me!!!! scared the $h1t out of me until i realized what was going on...
