Been quite a while since I've posted on here.. I usually just lurk and read.. But we're planning a trip to the island this coming Monday-Thursday and I've a question about how the westerly winds they're calling for in the next few days will effect the water clarity on the beaches. Seems like we've had a southeast wind forever now and the water has for the most part stayed dirty close to the beach. Thanks in advance guys

I fished Thursday about 1/2 way to Belle Pass and did well until the tide played out, but it was the first day of a decent tide. If it doenst blow like hell you should be alright. The water Thursday was beautiful. I had 19 good fish in about 2 hours

Very nice! Hopefully the weather cooperates. Been a while since I've lucked up and picked the right days that the water on the beach is pretty... I usually plan a trip for a month, get down there and it looks like chocolate milk lol. Wednesday we're going out with capt Fank with Laid Back Charter so I know he'll put us on the fish.. Monday and Tuesday though is on me to show the fiancée, originally from Indiana, how good the fishing is down here. Thanks for the report bud.
