Lagoon and Surf Fishing

Lagoon fishing is popular among the locals as well as the visitor. Spots, redfish, whiting and croaker are common, as well as an occasional barracuda. Light tackle is most often used.
Bait includes squid, cut bait, shrimp and various artificial baits.
Surf fishing requires a heavier rod and tackle. Large fish can be caught just beyond the breaking surf zone.
