The Catch

  Had New Jersey natives out for a half day of inshore fishing.  Our first location was one of my favorite local tidal creeks that has lots of deep holes, feeder creeks and some oyster bars.  Once again this particular creek came through, giving up a dozen redfish- some in the slot, some under, but two spots within the creek made for non-stop catching for the first hour or two..Pressure OFF!  When the bite slowed, and to give the guys a change of scenery,we fished the edges of some nearby oyster flats and got a few trout and some MONSTER Whiting…can I say that? Sort of like Jumbo Shrimp, but the fish were well worth the cleaning. 
  The roar of Harleys on A1A says it must be spring time.  That afore mentioned creek produced a lot of perfect 4-5lb black drum in January and Febuary, but we did not catch any the other day.  I guess I’ll have to leave my backyard and go looking for fish closer to the St. Augustine Inlet.  I suppose the Redfish will soon be working that way too.  Flounder are here and there right now and will just keep getting bigger and stacking up.  Cobia season is nearing and I have informed my wife she will be seeing little of me in the coming months.  See ya, Capt. Noah
