Wowie! Zowie!

What a rainstorm we had this morning! The ocean was foamy and roaring as the high tide rolled in, sucking out the blocked flow opening so the lake connected to it can empty. When the opening is plugged, nasty foam builds up at the point where it would usually drain out into the ocean. 

Of the three largest lakes, Buccaneer Bay is one of brackish water occupied with bass and flounder and baitfish (mullet). The latter plus some small panfish travel in and out of this flow.

Here are a few photos taken through the past few years of this part of the beach. 

Two of many flounders that were caught in Buccaneer Bay. 
This one was 21 1/2"

This one was 18 1/2"
