Surf fishing again!

The waves were super flat this morning with just a small breeze. Within minutes of wetting my line, I had a bite and the fight was on. A nice 15″ Spanish Mackerel to start the day. And then I spotted what I first thought was a mat of seagrass floating my way. However, it was a huge school of tailing redfish. I dropped my line in front of the school and had a huge run from one of the fish. Unfortunately, he was able to pull the hook out and I lost my fish. I ended the day with the mackerel and some of the largest whiting I have seen.

    There’s awesome. Apparently those schooling reds are getting around off the beach! What kind of lure are you throwing?

    Oddly enough I had a pompano rig with some shrimp on them. As I have caught three limit redfish in two days on that rig I thought it was worth an effort. I was throwing a small mackerel lure while the pompano rig was sitting in the water. However, I didnt think I could get the reds to bite on that.

    The whitings were also about 15″ but they were pretty fat. I will post a photo later.
