Kept that one. Got back in with the stringer. Water was clear and green, see your feet and then some in waist deep water clear. Immediately had something with sharp teeth break me off, I’m guessing bluefish.
Went and got another rod with thicker tippet and a different fly, a silver and chartreuse redfish crack. Nothing went for that pattern so I put back on another tan borski slider. Started catching fish right away. Those fish were 13-14” trout with a ladyfish or two in the mix. After a while, the trout disappeared and it was all ladyfish with a couple of tiny jack Crevalle. Everything was just into the second gut, just outside the small break. Then some strange dark brownish looking murky water started to move in and suffocate the clear stuff.
Decided to move a little into some still clear water. Spooked a large redfish, something around 34-35” while I was wading in about 15” of water. That was a surprise. Got one tiny flounder and the clear water was all but gone. Came on out at about 15:15.
The last two surf trips were much the same. Some little trout and ladyfish and a couple of tiny jacks. It was still fun battling those feisty trout even though I didn’t get any keeper fish. Ladyfish aren’t my favorite as the tear up flies and leaders, but they do jump a bunch.
The flies. The borski slider in various colors has been good all summer, surf or marsh.
