Try to talk to other people there. There are lots of shorebound anglers. Lighter tackle may be your best bet.
Also, as the water cools many more species will come into range. Especially for the sand fleas.
If you want to get away for a few days and take a quick drive over to naples, this is my slow season....I'll show you how to surf fish here and you can copy those methods there and it will work.
Drop me a line if you like, I'll be slow until mid October.
