11/5 - Back again.....

Had Dave Z. aboard the Jettywolf  spring of 2011. And he came back again, and brought his two sons from Los Angeles California.

We departed at 7am and headed straight to the Jetties. I was rigged and ready for Float-rig fishing, and  bottom fishing. Well the bottom fishing was what worked.



















Yellowmouth Trout, Croakers, Whiting, a small Blacktip Shark, and a just over sized Redbass were caught at first...not to forget a monster Toadfish, and even a 2 foot long eel!


We moved around a bit looking for an even  better bite. So with that said, we found the Black Drum, and a 20 pound Redbass.
Perfect eater sized Black Drum.
Second Redbass on just a piece of dead shrimp! No special baits needed. Not this time of year!
Smoked the Shimano TRN-100G reel and bent the Ugly Stik "stiper rod". Jessies arm was hurting.
We ended the bottom fishing (so I thought) on a good note and a big azz fish. So we packed up the bottom rods and tried a few float-rig spots for Trout. Between the 2 areas, all that was caught was one Jack Crevalle, by Dad, Dave.
 
It was a rising tide and it was flooding in pretty fast, and I didn't want to waste time searching around especially at high water, for a trout bite. So we packed in the Float-rigs and live shrimp and went back to bottom fishing. A few more small fish were caught, and then another Black Drum came aboard (no photo). With the high water, a box of good eater fish, we packed it in so I could clean up the fish and the guys could head over to Singleton's Seafood Shack for a late lunch.
 
It was nice and cool out there. The winds weren't light,  out of the north. But work'able.
 
Now I have the same crew tomarrow. I still have a livewell full of shrimp. So we may have to head into the river and hunt up some Trout and Reds float-rig fishing.
 
The Marine forecast is:
 
TUESDAY
NORTH WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS. SEAS 3 TO 5 FEET. INLAND
WATERS A MODERATE CHOP. SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS.
 
The "could be 20 knots" is a good reason to head in the river and look for a Trout bite, with an early morning falling tide.
