Congrats on the rings and gold cross! I gotta agree with Felix, I hear many say they'll never do dry sand for what ever reason but depending on the season and the side of the island the beach is facing going in the water is just not an option. Even damp/wet sand can be bad it the surf is really BIG. Winter time we hunt south shore, Summer we hunt north shore.

Numil..... i totally dont take my own advice about dry sand hunting. There absolutely is times the dry sand is MUCH better to hunt. Right nows a good one for some of the beaches because they dont let the tractor run as often because of turtle season. Winter time here ..... targets in the water are fewer as well. But ..... sometimes i just welcome the break and take a day off.
