Tough Day in the Surf

You can't catch them every day. Might as well face it.

Got up this morning and headed for a place I call Big Butt Beach, one of the best places to sightfish for snook in the surf. The real name of the beach shall remain anonymous -- to protect the innocent.

Conditions were decent when I arrived at about 7:30 a.m. But they progessively got worse as the morning went on. When the wind began coming out of the southwest, things got pretty bad.

Still, I did OK. I ended up with six snook to about inches and a pair of feisty mangrove snapper. All came on a 6-weight TFO TiCRX, sinktip line and D.T. Special (variation). There still are plenty of snook in the surf, but they're not as aggressive as they were earlier in the week.

The fish should remain in the surf until at least October.

Here's hoping we have some great days ahead.
