Fishing with Junegrass
Tried to surf fish yesterday with a pompano rig and could barely do anything because of the the june grass, or whatever it is that is getting caught up in my line. It gathers at the end of my rod and then I simply can't reel. Any suggestions on some alternative methods, or places to fish? If I were to rent a kayak and get out past the second bar, would the grass be as thick? I actually had a fish on my one and only cast, but it got off because I could not reel it in due to the grass. I bought fleas and shrimp, but can't use them right now with the grass and all. Can I use that stuff in the bay, and if so where should I go? Thanks, we are here till Saturday so maybe it will get better.

You may want to try fishing at the 331 Bridge with your shrimp, not so sure about the sand fleas. I refuse to fish with june grass in the water, just too much like work! Good luck,

yep, too much worry to fish when June grass is present. Very thick at Grayton and State Park this morning. However, the water did appear to be free of June Grass half way to the second sand bar. Might be worth a try if you really must fish in the Gulf. Otherwise, the 331 causeway has some good spots, like the smaller bridges.
