Headed out Sunday morning to fish the falling tide. Debated weather to go North or South to the bay and decided to go North for a change of scenery.
Hit Virginia Creek toward the end of the flood tide, but nothing was biting. Lot's of bait in there though, so the fish should be there as well, just think my timing was off. Hit a couple of other spots without much luck either.
Then I decided to try a spot that had produced for me in the past and bingo, there they were. A nice school of Reds were holding on a shallow flat feeding with the falling tide. I hooked my first fish as I saw the school scurry out from under the boat in about 4 feet of water. I pulled the hook and wasn't sure what it was, but it didn't take long to hook another to verify the species.
I worked the school for a couple of hours landed 4 nice slot sized Reds and missed or pulled the hooks on another half dozen or so. I guess I might have to retire my favorite jig cause it just doesn't seem to be holding a good point anymore. On second thought, I think I'll try to sharpen it a couple more times.
Water temps were anywhere from the upper 60's to lower 70's depending on water depth and current. Here's the pics!!
Let's go catch some fish!!!
