· Tight Lines, CaptDoug
Went out yesterday to do a little scouting and try some of the areas that had been a little to fresh. Started out at Smith Point, water looked good but didn't get a bite. Moved over to van-et-tun area lots of mullet but no bites there either. Moved to the north shore of East Bay and had two good hook ups on plum asassin, one came out of the water shook it's head and lure goes flying about 6 feet in the air. She was a very big Trout. No more bites there so moved to Hannas and right away caught and released a nice 23" trout again on plum asassin, right on the edge of the reef in about 7' of water, had one more hook up but quick released its self and then no more bites. Moved to some gas wells and the bite was on. Fished where it went from 15' up to 10', caught about 10 more trout, released all but 5, caught 1 big 23" sheepshead, released and a little sand shark that thought it was a tarpon. It put on an aireal (sp) display that was real funny to watch. Finally boated him and then released. All fish on the wells came on live shrimp, free lined. Tried to post some pics but my computer is not letting me, will post some up later.
