Default First Trip of 2012

Decided to go Friday night for a while since I have not been this year.
Hit the water 30 min after sunset. Water was very clear and calm. As soon as I turned on the lights I went 10 yards and saw the first fish. A little small so I let him walk (so to speak).
Tide was goin out and was already pretty low. Did not have very good expectations but was pleasantly surprised. Ended up with 7 fish and let 3-4 go to get bigger. Wind picked up around 11pm and the water got murky. Headed home and thanked the good Lord for my fish.

Nice.

For some reason, I do better on an outgoing low tide rather than an incoming high tide.

What general area are you going in. I may have to place my lights back on the boat and give it a try.
