Red Fish Bite
We left at 5:30 to pull the shrimp trawl, we made a 5 minute pull, and to our surprise, the bag was filled with shrimp and some bait fish as well. We picked out enough for bait, and they filled two gallon ziplocks with shrimp. We took a little bit to take in the scenery around us, and then it was off to stretch the string!
We started the morning trout fishing, we picked up a few good ones at each stop with some throwbacks as well. We caught enought trout to eat, and then switched our focus to redfish. These proved to be a little harder to find. We finally came across a spot with a few fish, caught a couple, missed a few more. We decided that was plenty to eat and head back for some lunch.
Next trip left at 1 PM, it was a very slow start, but we found some smaller trout, just a couple keepers, but plenty of action. So we hung out there for a minute and put a few fish in the box. The tide was falling fast, and add that to a light south wind, and you got yourself a recipe for entertainment. We traveled around to the beach side, and the big females were there and they were hungry. We only kept a couple to help preserve an awesome fishery, and released the rest.
On the way back we found a nice rip current directly on the beach, prime real esate for bull redfish. So we made a couple drifts, hooked a few fish, and decided that was plenty. They said they had plenty, so away we went.
