Unfortunately it's in the shop at the Toshi Station with a bad power converter, so back to the marsh for me.
Low tide meant shrimp, menhaden, mullet, and blue crabs were concentrated in the channels and drains. Birds abounded and I saw stilts, skimmers, spoonbills, egrets, herons, gulls, terns, willets, rails, and various pipers. Also, redfish busting bait, crawling on the mud, and creating havoc everywhere. Long story short, TKF, it was hard to get the fish to pay attention to any of my lures or flies. I tried the standard topwaters, spinnerbaits, Cocahoes, and some clouser minnows and craft fur shrimp. I was worried that I was looking at a bigger bust than Dolly Parton (hi-yooooooo). Thankfully, my sobs were answered by a redfish that took pity on me.
A dwarf trout came later. He was embarrassed of his small stature, so I spared him the shame of a photo. I contented myself with watching birds some more.
I'm sure I could have nailed a few troots and some bigger reds if I'd gone off to the deeper reefs in the bay. And I'll try to do just that next week to try to make up for this less than stellar showing. Fish are biting, but it's tough. Hey!!!
Let's be careful out there.
