Here is the copy paste from my log book with a few tweaks:
Fished from canals on east to dead Caney.
Water was a little murky
Took my son in the front of my inflatable. Mom and Dad also brough their Kayaks.
Was fairly windy.
I was using popping cork, ¼ oz matrix shad, and Ned Rig TRD.
Didn't catch much but did hook a flounder on the matrix Shad, didn't get a good hookset so he got off at the side of the boat. Darn! Tried to recapture him since I hear they don't move far when they spit the good but no dice.
Hooked him on a grassy point in shallow water (about 1 ft)
Caught a few undersized trout too on the same matrix shad, trolling and casting around oyster in the middle of the lake.
Dead Caney is a bit shallow.
Tried a mullet under popping cork but I don't have much confidence in it so I gave it up.
Keys to catching fish:
Flounder was up shallow near the outlet of the canal on the shoreline, worked the matrix shad by swimming it back fast enough to keep it off the mud with a steady retrieve. Next time need to let it sit for a few seconds after the tap then set the hook.
Next time try:
Head towards the ICW most likely to get better fish.
Need to make use of the anchor and fan cast the shorelines to find flounder.
Here's some pics
I'll upload another report from last week later.
