Took my kayak out for the first time today to Pierce Marsh. I wasn’t expecting much since the water level was so high but I was off work and people seem to mention it often as a good place to start out. I was expecting to just gain some experience peddling and enjoy the morning. I put in at Louis’ at 6:30 and went into the second entrance after the railroad tracks. I roamed around for about 30 minutes and didn't see anything obvious so I decided to pick some spots to blind cast. I caught 2 20 inch redfish and some undersized trout over the course of about an hour and a half. Eventually I moved to a more open part of the marsh (just by dumb luck) and saw bait in the water so I started drifting in that area. During my hour and a half there I caught more undersized trout and also a 23 inch trout (my personal best). I headed north and tried a few random spots, catching a few more undersized trout, before exiting the first entrance and heading back to the truck. Turned out to be a great first kayak trip for me!
