Yip i have the same issues with the spinys i think its because they like swimming up current and the waves going out have the same effect. I caught doggies on crayfish before now too.
Mili you’d probably have access to harvest.com, i look at the ones on vineyards down in those areas to give an idea of the winds too they can be very handy at times. If you want to save the time unless you know where they are i can give you the links (luckily most dot use passwords for access) to sum of the more useful vineyard harvest.com units down that way?
Heres a couple of pics of the jaw of the shark from last weekend that i managed to retrieve and trying to preserve.
