I hit the surf in Melbourne Beach at Ponce de Leon yesterday. It was outgoing tide at about 6pm when I got a line in the water. Maybe it was just the sun going down, but the water didn’t look as clean as it did on nearby surf cams just a few hours earlier. There were enough weeds in the water to be annoying, but it wasn’t too bad and seemed to get better as the tide went out. Sand fleas were everywhere and abundant.
