I agree! It is 11 hours for me. The hangnail factor is huge.Shhh...
Uhmm ... There is no fish down there... Nah...
Not worth the 8 hr drive.. You might get a hangnail or even a line burn..
Safer to stay at home..
Ah Jon, how many do you want to catch, had 20 in the Pass area past weekend, did I mention an occassioal King for your troubles. Good news is it will get better thru December, bad news is the wind gets a little bad as well. Weve been getting the albes and cudas since Sept.I've heard a lot about the Florida bite. Supposedly they are almost considered trash fish as few guys chase them but they are readily available all winter, or is it all year.
Fort Pierce, West Palm comes to mind. I know it's further but when you can combine it with a family trip to Disney world, then you're using your noggin.
Plus the shore fishing in Indian river, Sebastian Inlet, Sailfish point,
But I've never been to Harkers. One of these days I guess. Don't forget about the red drum down there. Hear it can almost never be too windy for back bay drumin or surf chunkin. Good luck everyone.
