Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Birthday Alys
Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Birthday Alys
November 26, 2020
2020 has been a wild ride but, even still, we have a lot to be thankful for. Alyssa’s 18th birthday was today and her dad wanted to take her fishing. The pattern for today was to stick and move as the fish didn’t seem to be stacked up in any particular spot with our abnormally warm water temps for this time of year. So what does that mean? More spots equals more fish and thats exactly what we did. We covered a lot of water and picked a few fish off at every stop producing a very healthy ice chest at the end of the day. 8 different species across 26 fish is a record in and of itself worth bragging about...speckled trout, white trout, redfish, flounder, sheepshead, bass, freshwater cats, and a channel mullet...talk about a Thanksgiving spread! We have an amazing fishery here and this box of fish proves it. A major cold front is approaching and will really stack the fish up. December 2020 will be one to remember and limits of speckled trout and redfish will be a great way to close out one of the wildest years in history, let’s go fishing!!!

The weatherman missed the forecast (again) and we were greeted with 20+ mph North winds at our 6am meetup time at the marina...no big deal, just had to change our strategy for the morning. We started out fishing the bridges and picked off a couple sheepshead but the wind just kept getting worse so it was time to find a more protected area. We were able to get on a nice trout bite using drop shots and sliding cork rigs with live shrimp. Closed out the morning with 20 nice trout in the 15” - 18” range and 3 sheepshead. It’s nice when a trip comes together even in some really adverse fishing conditions!

Miller just turned 18 years old and his big present was a full day inshore fishing! This crew did serious work the first couple hours of the morning filling the box with speckled trout and sheepshead between multiple spots. Redfish was still on the list so we made a big move and hit paydirt at the last stop of the day, topping off the box with a mess of redfish before heading back to the cleaning tables. Great crew and a great time, cant wait to take these guys again!
