Off for a little family r&rR, meeting the son and grandkids for a few days. No boat or kayak, but I will be walking the beach every morning at sunrise, fighting off the skeeters and no-seeUms... casting the shore lines for some Snook action.

    Thx, been a little slow, cayght a few small snook,been very windy..
    My son caught a nice one yesterday morning...

    Its funny to see people around on the beach when you pull something like that in where they swim, and funnier to see to ones who don;t understand when you just release it.

    Nice looking Snook!  Looks like fun fishing!

    Perfect place for dawn snooking - particularly for someone with a fly rod...or other light gear since the fish are very close to the sand...

    We, my son and I are both spinning tackle fisher's.. and the shore line is great fishing.
    It was very windy most days, there was a guy with a fly rod, but he was not having much luck.

    Lots of turtle nest on the beach, but did not see any hatches.. it;s all Loggerheads on that beach. read an article that the same turtles com back every other year to the same beach and sometimes return up ft 5 times to lay eggs in a year.

    I usually see the snook cruising the trench a couple of feet from the shoeline

    Yes that generally the case, but I was catching small 18-22" Snooklets in the wash, that bigh girl my son got about 30' off the shoreline.
    With the wind the water was very dirty and the waves wee pounding the shoreline, it was very hard to keep a jerk-bait or paddle tain, even with 3/16oz weight off the beach.
