Friday January 20th Anna Maria Island 8:00am S/SW flow is on the rise today 10-15mph. Could be a ridable wave this afternoon/evening for some. S/SW windswell continues to develop Saturday with waves in the thigh high range. The wind machine really starts to crank Sunday with rapidly building surf through the day. Monday morning we wake to strong NW flow and cooler temps and the swell peaking in the chest to overhead range and chunky conditions for the best wind protected spots. It's going to be VAS for anything not wind protected. On Tuesday we're down to dropping leftovers with lighter wind and fading conditions (best early). Have a great Friday! Gulf Temp 67°
FISHING REPORT: 1/20 - 1/26 Some nasty wind coming through this weekend and into next week going to make things interesting. I noticed this week a lot of the crab traps that previously dotted the beaches have been pulled. The commercial fishing guys were having a bad time with octopi eating all of their stone crabs in their traps.

EAST COAST SURF REPORT IS IT WORTH THE DRIVE EAST TODAY?
Friday January 20th Satellite Beach 7:50am TGIF!!! Nice cool start but, we'll warmup rather quickly today. Surf this morning looks around knee high or less. Small waves hang around over the next couple of days with a slight pickup Sunday with strong south wind. On Monday strong offshore wind will knock us down to near flatness. So not a lot of surf expected in this neck of the woods. All the juice will be gulf side in the days ahead. Tides today LT 7:58am HT 1:42pm LT 8:27pm Atlantic Temp 72°
