    Default The Beach

    2 a.m., I checked the weather forecast for the beach. It looked favorable. I hit the vice

    The surf was up a bit, but it wasn't so high that I couldn't fish.

    And fish I did.

    Actually, walk is a more accurate term. The fish made me work for it. I had to walk a long way to hook the first one. I ended up landing 16 and losing a half dozen or so more.

    Lots of bait. Lots of turtle nests. Lots of birds. Lots of beachcombers. Lots of sun. Looking around today, you could hardly tell there was a relentless red tide at this time last year. Let's hope the recovery is a success. I missed walking that beach! The last oil spill taught me not to take it for granted. This last endless red tide solidified that. It can all change in a heartbeat.

    Been trying to do some snookin on the beach for a while. Looks like you picked a good day as thunderstorms are issuing in summer rainy season.

    Mother nature's alarm clock goes off all times of day & night in rainy season, sometimes turning off the electricity for hours !
