Tides were low, but not the lowest I ever seen there. I did see one dead trout stuck in the exposed oyster. And a couple more floating throughout the day.
Again, the day started slow, but there were signs of fish. We made our way into the wind as far as we could on the flat and made a drift. The skinnier water wasn't holding muh, but as we got intot he "deeper" portions we saw many mud boils and spooked redfish. We grinded for the morning feeling a bit frustrated as the reds were there. I finally managed to snag one on a gold spoon.
Shortly there after we decide to call it as we both had trips to make back to San Antonio after cleaning the cabin and putting my kayak back in storage.
Oh, we also saw some dead Mangrove Snapper in the canals of Island Moorings.
Anyways, I want to thank Ron and Don for making the trip after spending a week in the frozen tundra. We still had a few water issues going on, and the amount of dead trout was hard to swallow, but it was a fun trip. Looking forward to the next one.
