ACTIVE AS DEFINED AS; "working your cork or jig"......Not just bait-n-waitin', fishing.
Beautiful sunrise of all places, while sitting at the boat ramp!
Look at that texture in the sky! "Was it a red sky in the morning Sailors take warning"
NOPE, not till the afternoon when it went from dead calm, no wind, slick water, to rough water , loads of wind and even rain!
Had Rob and Tommy aboard today. Game plan....go shallow, fish the simple corks and a 1/8th ounce jighead and dead shrimp. For.....IT ALL.
But it was too damn calm.
They did get a few drum and a few speckled trout but all were pretty small. With one keeper Drum at 15". Then, it was on too Float-rig fishing.
Loads of small Specks, too many ravenous sand trout. But they did box a few keeper specks.
Then we made a good move. River rock pile. Trout, Flounder and Reds. Between the float-rigs and just plain ole Jig-n-shrimp combo meals. Even a few Mangrove Snappers.
Ended the day cleaning fish in the rain back at the dock. That was just "wonderful!"
But a good day overall.
KEEPER SIZED REDBASS?? WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT TO BE REAL?
NO MORE BAIT-N-WAITING FOR ME IF I CAN HELP IT. SITTING AND WAITING FOR A BIG FISH (BULL REDFISH), THAT EVERYONE THINKS WE ARE GONNA KEEP.
