Very quiet morning today. More stingray and needle fish...and a couple of cruising sharks. Oddly, one stingray seemed to be stalking me. Would stay within 10 feet wherever I moved on the sandbar.

I don't know much about the area but I wouldn't hesitate to fish the beach if conditions are right and if you can find a quiet spot. The jetty just south of the pier might be promising as well.
