Went out yesterday afternoon to fish the last hour of the falling and first hour of the rising. Went back to the spot I had been fishing the past week. Caught 5 red drum all in the 28-30 inch range. Again, couldn't get through the drum to get to the flounder. Look for the drum on the oyster rocks at low tide - they are tearing up the bait!

Today I went out with a couple of my buddies on their 25' Hydrasport WA. We have been laying low the past few weeks from trolling cause of the hot water but decided to "test the waters" today. We went out to the first set of boxcars and jigged up greenies, google eyes, hard tails and cigar minnows. Then we headed out to the 23 mile reef area and slow trolled live bait.

We fished those great baits all morning - nothing but one short strike. So we decided to switch to ballyhoo and target the Mahi by fast trolling. Bingo - we had two hook ups and managed to get one of them to the boat - a 10 pounder. Slow day - still need some cooler water for the trolling bite to pick up again.
