Best wind to surf fish

Here in Florida one of the main considerations a surf fishermen has to keep in mind when planning a trip is wind direction and speed.  The speed and direction of the wind can either make a trip rather sucessful or quite difficult.  Here is the ideal wind for surf fishing!

When fishing the east coast:

  • Wind out of the west (knocks down the size of the surf)
  • Wind less than 15 knots (any higher will lead to bows in the line)
  • Any wind out of the South will work as well, but can not have high speeds!
