It’s been some pretty good surf action the past few days depending on the beach you picked . I fished with Jim Burczyk from Bass Pro Shops on Saturday and Sunday and managed to fill the cooler each day with nice whiting, croaker , threadfins -aka “clear noses”, and sand perch . We fished at theJensen Beach access right at the circle and with the absence of fresh shrimp at the Snook Nook . Bloodworm and Pink Shrimp Fishbites was the bait of choice . It’s the time of year when the shrimp boats on the west coast of Florida do not even leave the dock as the shrimp head offshore and most of the ones that are available are tiny . Those boats usually start up again right in the beginning of August . If you want to tip your rigs with a small piece of shrimp buy a bag of frozen and cut them into small pieces. It wasn’t necessary for us as the plain Fishbites worked great .We started at Normandy beach on Sunday morning and caught a few but when the weeds became an issue we made a move to Jensen and had steady action with nice whiting and croaker. I started at Jensen yesterday morning and caught those fish at a steady rate for an hour and then they shut off . I made a move almost all the way up to Fort Pierce Inlet and found no weeds and beautiful color water . The whiting , croaker, tgreadfins, and sand perch were stacked up in the first trough and after an hour of catching I headed home . The drop off for most of the beaches up by Fort Pierce is right at your feet so if you pitch your bait more than 3 or 4 yards you will miss the bite . We did see some tarpon on Sunday morning at Normandy along with some bait schools . Good luck this week and catch em up .
