Winds were surprisingly "calm" so I decided to paddle across to the future Powderhorn Ranch SP shoreline. My initial plan was to fish the marshes, but with the wind and laying eyes on it for the first time I didn't feel confident with it. I launched with another kayaker who was going to soak bait around those lakes.
This small stretch had oyster shells piled up but layered under the top soil. My first thought was this was were Karankawa indians used this spot to shuck oysters.
Started throwing topwater along the shoreline in 18" of water. There signs of fish in the area as balls of bait were being attacked. As I was burning my topwater back in to recast a 26" red crushed it.
I strung it up and worked my way down the shoreline. I did stakeout and wade for a bit where there was a lot of activity. Tossed topwater, hunchback, and grasswalker for a bit. I had a thump on the grasswalker, but that was it. Hoped back in to the kayak and paddled north to the pocket and used the wind to drift down the opposite shoreline, but didn't get a bump.
Diced to call it a day, and since I paddled into the wind on my out in the morning I had it to my back coming in. I barely even had to paddle. The wind pushing me back to the launch at a decent 2.5 mph; only made minor adjustments with my rudder.
There three other kayakers fishing in the lakes when I came back, 2 of which fishing with live bait. I didn't see any stringers. The powerboaters within Powderhorn seemed to be moving with high frequency as well. So, Not sure how the fishing was on Saturday as my red was a bit fluky .
