Jacksonville Beach - My neighbor Emily got down to the beach around 7:30 AM. It was mi-tide with high-tide expected around 10:30 AM. There was a wind from the East, which was a little annoying for casting, but it was also pushing some deeper water over the sand bar. Sometimes at mid-tide, the water is to shallow over the sand bar to fish., but today the wind was helping. It was about 20 minutes before I got the first bite, and it felt like a bluefish. It was, and we kept catching them all morning. There was so many finger mullet in the surf that they were banging into our ankles while we were fishing. I threw the cast net once and we had more than enough bait for the whole day. It was a beautiful day, and we had a blast as usual. We shared smoked bluefish with the neighbors in the evening.
