We decided that today was the day to give E Matty a try. Golfpro and I headed out and with a little guidance (thanks TxSpeck) we arrived at Rawlings about 10am.
Being that we were new to the area we decided our best bet would be live shrimp as bait. We put into the canal and immedietly saw bait EVERYWHERE! We proceded out of the canal and headed left up to a nice cut. We fished there for about 30 minutes with no action then went separate ways.
I went back south to the other shore and did a slow drift all the way across to a nice point where I decided to anchor. I immedietly got attention 2 hardheads
I pulled anchor and drifted another couple hundred yards and anchored again. This time I catch a rat red (popping cork) then a 10" puppy drum (bottom). After that and several locations later I still don't have a keeper anything. I met back up with Golfpro and we headed in about 4pm.
All in all it was a great day with a beautiful new location to explore and learn.
East Wind 10+
Nice water with 18" visability
live shrimp popping cork and bottom
shores, banks, canals, open water, ... Anywhere we thought might hold fish.
Ended up with:
