Seeing that everybody is hush hush about fishing the beach. I will tell you that I wacked a bunch of Spanish macks at the Con brown harbor. I never seen macks so fare from the gulf. I went through a pound of dead shrimp in 2 hours
I gave away 6 nice fish and released a few. I used a small wire leader with a 1/0 hook. No weight.
Great fun on 10lb line
