I hope alot of you have had a chance to hit the beach the last couple of days because there is some great fishing going on right now. My wife Deb asked me to start putting some whiting and croaker in the freezer for some future fish dinners and after today that issue is settled.I have been down here full time for nine years now and I cannot remember a day when I targeted the whiting and croaker that equals today. The whiting part of the duo have not really showed up in any numbers yet but the croaker bite is incredible. I fished today by myself and I am not really sure how many I caught but they bit from the time I hit the beach until I left . I started fishing two rods for pompano but the blue runners were back again and it was non stop bites from those guys so I concentrated on the croakers. There were a few pompano caught today at Hobe Sound so hopefully they will move up this way. Getting back to the croaker bite, Bloodworm and Pink Shrimp Fishbites along with some small pieces of fresh shrimp caught all of the croakers. I know I sound like a broken record but if you want to have a successful day ,do not cast your rigs, just pitch them. I did not get a bite on any cast I made that was more than 15 yards. These fish bit right through the tide so time of day or tide stage did not matter. This fishing is tailor made for kids so if you have a grandson, granddaughter, niece , nephew , son , or daughter that you want to introduce to surf fishing, now is the time. Make sure you bring an extra bag of Fishbites with you because you will go through some bait. I have been using a Penn Spinfisher 3500 on a 7 foot light action Penn Batallion spinning rod and this combination is perfect . There were schools of spanish mackerel during the course of day so if you want to have some fun with them bring a rod with a few spoons and turn the handle. Get out and catch some of these tasty fish this week.
