Ok. Just got home. After a few hours of battling the waves, which were not huge, but big enough you had to put out some effort, I got tired of just catching whiting. After the Pompano, it was all whiting, nothing else.
I intended catching bait with the cast net, but as a back up, I bought some fresh dead shrimp. No bait to be seen in the surf. Nada, nothing, so used the shrimp. Water was fairly clear. I could see my feet in 2 feet of water. Water temp was a little cool at first, but by noon, not bad at all. Weed was moderate. Not as bad as it gets, but enough to be a mild pain in the a**. I took a few pics. 1st is the Pompano. Then some of all the washed up trees, limbs, and weed.
The traffic when I left was backed up over the Inter Coastal Bridge for at least 2 miles.
