been getting some nice inshore mangos on docks and rocks in jax and st aug, perfect for the pan and fun on light tackle with a few bonus flatties in the mix!

You guys get some good flounder action up there, huh. What's the best time of year for them there? Might drag the boat up there some time. Never fished up there.

The island guys were nailing them at Inlet, but I skipped on the shoulder to shoulder stuff. We were relegated to jacks, lady fish and some smaller snook.

There should be Muttons on the near shore reefs too.

The two times of year I do best(at my favorite areas near or at inlets) are around the supposed "runs" of fish that spawn offshore in the winter.

So in the spring and early summer, we get them coming inshore where they disperse into the ICW creeks and up the river all the way to palatka!

Then in the fall we get them as they head back offshore. Fall historically is best especially for big fish(mullet run), but due to increased pressure I am doing better on the spring runs.

So you can get them year around but I do best during those times, the spring run in is about over but many hang around jettys and inlets all year while others head to the creeks etc and many people think go up river for the shrimp.

I do alot better during the spring myself..... more numbers, but yeah bigger fish in the fall. But to be fair, in the fall I'm surfing more than fishing (hopefully )

For the first time since I can't remember, we didn't have the cold water inversion this year. That usually drives a bunch of stuff inshore, but it might not have happened this summer. I usually hear tell of some nice Muttons being caught off the jetties, but none this year.

Yeah the up welling helps with the big muttons. I have been lucky with them when the water gets cold on the south side of the jetty in June/July. I know where to put the bait to get them.

dove friday offshore, water was clean and cool on bottom (70 degrees). Dove Sunday and water was 68 and very dirty (4 ft viz). I thought this might be the first year we didnt get one too, but alas a thermocline in almost September. It is, afterall, 2020.....

for some reason stiff offshore winds seem to go hand and hand with thermoclines/upwellings. I remember a couple summers surfing in a spring suite in July/August

I surfed O club a few years ago in the summer. The wind had been west for days. I never thought to bring a wetsuit. It was a typical, small clean summer day. Perfect log wave. I got that look by the guys on the stairs, even a heads up for the temperature but it did not prepare me for that. Numb hands and feet and 90 degrees air temperature. I made it about a half hour.

Yup, ice cream headaches in the summer. I do not surf the upwelling anymore. Not worth it. It's colder than winter water sometimes.

steady dose of SSW winds cause the upwelling....

A little bird told me there are some serious flatties inshore up here..... which is weird when the inshore water is like 90.

a fried of mine got a keeper recently off sat beach on a cut croaker, also they have been getting shorts inside port Canaveral just under sized. I bet the reefs off wabasso could be good
