Paul! Turn right at turtle beach! Probably won't get into reds, but the snapper and sheepshead will tear that stuff up! I've also gotten into Spanish Mac's right at the beach access in the breakers, although I'm not sure why they are there,as it's the only place I've hit them in the surf, but hey, glad you're getting out at least. Keep the pics coming.

Kid,

Saw your comment about casting in the surf as well.... If you are not using a stripping basket currently, it makes all the difference in the world.... even if you are wading where there is some current or tide movement.

I echo some other sentiments as well.... no need to go 12 feet on the leader for reds and your hook can never be too sharp... I prefer to flatten down the barb as well.

If you are a newbie to salt, I think the hardest transition most trout guys have is getting a good hard strip strike rather than lifting the rod. I am no pro, but have crusted a decent amount of salt water on my gear to have made plenty of blunders!

Good luck and tight lines. :)

A-kid,
Maybe if you had joined Fred and I at the Jersey shore last November we would have done better on the stripers and blues. Keep us in mind for 2010.

HF,

If you can, plan your trip so you'll be fishing around the full (or new) moon phase. The tides down there are not that strong and the full moon moves more water. The snook like a moving tide.

Also, the big females come in for the full moon.

I've had some incredible days in Naples that time of year.
One morning a few years ago I went out in a jonboat with a buddy around 4AM to fish the lights and got lots of small snook & jacks.

Then hit the eastern shore with topwater lures. We caught everything from snook to jacks to sailcats!

Next was a monster school of spanish, jacks and ladyfish in a rip.

We topped it off with a 26 pound snook on light tackle. This was all by 9 AM!!

If that doesn't get your juices flowing, check your pulse!

Good luck.
