First time fishing here. Put in at a marsh just off the road. Plenty of baitfish, but the tide was rising fast. First marsh was heavy with oyster and I got no bites. Ended up paddling about 4 miles altogether, fishing and exploring about. Finally found some more suitable, sandy bottom and picked up an 18" flounder. Fished a while longer without a bite and headed in. Got a better idea where to start next time.
