Was trying to get Pompano but instead caught 4 Sheepsheads in a matter of 30 min span.  There are (were) many fish nearshore around hig tide, pretty sure I saw a Snook.  Small fish getting hit, some bigger splashes further offshore. At least I did not get any catfish which was a nice change. 

By the fourth SheepsHead I was over it, seemed like they were out in large numbers, cast out..wait a few mins, and bam, fish on...Big sandfleas everywhere, would be even better if high tide was at dawn.

Fished last night, caught two fat speckled trout in the wash along with bluefish and sheepshead.  Throwing jigs.

That's awesome, although a bit of a pain to clean sheepies are one of my favorite fish to eat.

I remember one winter when the water was clear surfing small CB waves over them small groups and ones and twos.

Also poked a few behind hangers with the old pole spear
