Default Re: Fishing Clearwater area in late August

Marcel,

Thanks for the advice on the weather and conditions, as well as the photos. That's a huge help. I understand August might be a bit rough in terms of weather during hurricane season. I'll certainly take that into consideration. I figure early morning will be my primary window to surf fish to avoid the afternoon T-storms and the wind.

Most images I've seen of the Gulf Coast surf, it seems fairly tame compared to the wave action out here on the Pacific Coast. Out here, I use a 300-grain sinking line to get it down quickly in the surf so I can stay in touch with my line despite the wave action.

I noticed you recommend an intermediate line. That and the images I've seen suggest less extreme conditions in the surf on most days. Is that a fairly accurate assessment?
