We started out thinking this was gona be a bad fishing trip lol: 2ft below normal water level and slow tides. We went to a couple fishing spots with no result. i caught a couple catfish but that was it so now to the next spot. Good signs fish on the screen and a couple birds we caught a couple reds fishing off the rocks and a few undersized fish then it went dead. i decided to take them to my favorite Rig and try; sure enough there was a conga line of fish on the screen. We threw out far seeing what we'd catch there and cought a nice drum. One of my clients decided to do the old drop the line off the side method and BOOM a nice red fish. Well we did the same and BOOM BOOM a nice black drum and a HUGE red fish. He started peeling line and SNAP there he went. The biggest fish of the day popped 20lb line wow.... we caught a few more fish and called it a evening. Overall the day started slow and then picked up nicely they were happy and have plenty of fish to take home AND a few stories to tell.
Well Sunday's trip was interesting. The fishing conditions was perfect for a full day of limiting out. Got several calls for guiding that day but already booked for a full day client. We went out and had minimal success. The water was salty, winds 2-3 knots, cloud cover and tides in our favor..... The only thing we didn't see was birds working hmmm very puzzling; everywhere we looked was lazy birds and sleeping pelicans. Plenty of bait swimming but no Activity. We headed to the rocks caught a few drum and i few undersized redfish and one nice keeper. Then we headed to the platforms with little success mostly crocker. Last place before we called it a day was the shell pad caught a couple drums and a couple small sand trout. One day for the books for low numbers but it was a blast and She had a great time on the water.
