Thursday Weather Sept 20th

Yesterday the point was beautiful.  The end is a little carved up so during high tide you need to back off pretty far or you will be in the water fast.  I had to move my vehicle a dozen or so times.  There were plenty of birds working the water just too far out to reach.

Lot of activity this time of year in the harbor of safe refuge.

Holding bottom was not an issue despite the fast current.  Jason Schuster was next to us and hooked up with a nice sandbar shark five minutes after casting out a mullet rig.  We helped him work the shark real quick and set it loose after removing the hook.  

   Today is looking like another good day to get in the surf.  The water is still in the upper seventies.
