Saturday there were lots of schools of bait fish heading south, and in some of the schools something was feeding well, as the fish were jumping. Schools were too far out, I did have 2 friends on boards try and push them in to no avail, only thing caught Sat was a skate and a shark took everything quickly, Sunday was too overcast, so did not hit the beach.

Good luck with the fishing. I know how exciting it is to be only a week away from the big trip.

3 days left father in-law is down he should be heading out tomorrow morning for some fishing, he said he did notice some bait but they would be to small to catch wasnt able to see any mullet yet, also noticed people catching some blues off the pier, when we get back if we get anything good I'll be sure to post some pictures.

Father in law is staying down in Myrtle Beach and tried to go out fishing this morning and the lifeguard said that it was a rule that no one can fish on the beach down there is that true and would it be that way in North Myrtle as well?

Thanks

First day down here didnt have any luck catching anything, didnt get to see any bait fish either, I did throw my net out and did catch a few really small minnows in the surf but that was about it hopefully tomorrow morning will be better luck.
