FoP Report 7/24/2018
Waves: 2 foot in the morning calming to 1 foot or less in the afternoon
Water temp: 81 degrees F
Wind: 10-12 mph SW switching to light SE winds after 12pm
Driving: 6/10 Even though the beach is nice and wide there are a few soft spots above the ledges that have been forming around the water's edge which requires 4x4 on heavier trucks. Fishing was extremely slow with only whiting, hardheads, and bonnethead sharks caught and reported by other beachgoers.
Water was clear and cool the length of the beach but cleaner north of the 30.
