  Tuesday and not much has changed. We have some warmer water temperatures around 72 this morning with flat conditions on the surf. Mullet, croaker, and spot are all I am hearing about, and there is not much talk off of the beach this week. Some small sharks are in the surf giving some anglers a little more action. The pier fishing did improve late yesterday afternoon with a good mix of fish with blues, sheepshead, croaker, flounder, and black sea bass. The nearshore fleet continues to bring home ribbonfish while the offshore fleet has yellowfin, mahi, and wahoo with some marlin flags flying. Some anglers are struggling to get any bites and it really comes down to location and topography. Earlier this season we had a bad storm that really changed the beach and moved a lot of sand around where it doesn't need to be. You really need to take the time to look around and read the beach and look for the holes which should improve your fish count. For now, that's all I have.

Some charters are available and don't forget about crab and shrimp trips the shrimp are getting bigger this time of the year and a great time to go get yourself some.
