Entered the water a little before 5 pm. Streaky green with about 30% seaweed present. Lots of mullet and even some small shrimp. A few silver dollar size jellyfish present as well. Tide was falling and almost done. Started out throwing a 1/2 ounce silver spoon with one bump. Switched to a 51MR18 mirrolure, no takers. Switched to a 3" Berkley Gulp Shrimp that only had small nibbles when fished on the bottom. Waded out to last bar accessible during low tide. Fished the 3" shrimp for about 20 minutes with no takers. Switched back to a 1/4 ounce silver spoon for 3 casts, then switched to a 3/4 ounce silver spoon to gain more distance when casting into the wind. Caught one 14"-15" spanish mackerel in the top of the water column, released. Got out of the water around 7:15 pm. Had a meat soaker come plowing through the water when I was still in close to shore. Making more noise than game 4 of the Astros/Cardinals NLCS playoff game I attended last year! I could have thrown my spoon and hit this guy. As luck would have it, on his first cast with a shrimp, he nails a decent trout estimated by me to be around 22". A solid fish to say the least. I think he ended up 3-4 trout. He also caught a couple of huge lady fish. I am praying that the weather conditions and water can hold through the coming weekend!
