NOPE......NO 6 KEEPERS, TODAY. REALLY CRAPPY DAY. BUT HAD LOTS OF R&D TO DO.
ONE ''KEEPER'' TROUT ALL DAY!
MOTHER NATURE SEEMED TO FIGHT EVERYTHING I TRIED.
-TRIED OUT, ''FISHBITES'' NEW FIGHT CLUB SCENTED SOFT PLASTICS
multiple pup Redfish, one decent Flounder, that turned into fish-n-grits by 6pm.
|big enough for the ride home|
HAD PLENTY OF ''LIVE SHRIMP'' LEFT OVER, BIG ENOUGH FOR THE BBQ....OR FRESH SCAMPI. VIA B&M BAIT AND TACKLE. ''always has the best bait'' SHOP.
TOO BAD, MOST OF THE TROUT I CAUGHT WERE 14 INCHES. ONE 16 INCHER MADE THE RIDE HOME.
|SHRIMP SO BIG & BAD.....!|
YES, IT WAS A STRUGGLE. MAX 51 DEGREE WATER, OVER-CAST, NOT PARTICULARLY WARM, EXCEPT ON ''LAND''. PEOPLE IN BOATS..................''EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!''
EVEN CRAPPY WEATHER SATURDAYS SUCK. NOT ENOUGH SPOTS, AND TOO MANY HUMANS.
IF GAS WAS CHEAPER, I KNOW WHERE I'D GO, WHERE THERE'S NO ONE ANCHORED, EVERY 300 YARDS. BUT, I'M A VERY POOR FISHERMAN, ON A VERY TIGHT BUDGET, WHEN DOING SOLO R&D.
-fished my hand made 1 ounce swing-jigs, with jumbo shrimp. They work. Just need more fish to bite.
-used new boat deck mat. Trying to save deck paint, on boat.
-my oxygen system is a real winner! Matched up too my divided Icey-tech cooler as a baitwell / fishbox / seat. LOVE IT!
MONDAY - 1/29
2 HOUR ''KIDS TRIP'' UP NEXT.
WARMER WATER, COMING SOON.....!
