Default Naval Live Oaks - Nuthin. Suggestions Welcome.

Hit NLO this afternoon for a couple hours of wade fishing. Windy but water was pretty clear. Tried north and south (Bay / Butcherpen Cove and ICW/Soundside) and got nothing.

Tons of baitfish in the ICW, a few minnows and mullet on north side.

Throwing a gold weedless spoon and Gulp new penny shrimp on jig head.

Starting to wonder if the fish just don't like me!

Its still a little early for wade fishing, I usualy start in May. Try a live shrimp under a popping cork in the morning and in the afternoon try live pinfish. Gulp, billy bay shrimp, and top waters early in the morning work great for artificial baits. I usualy wade early in the morning. Hope this helps!

Thanks - I typically can't get out until the afternoon and dont' have a ton of time so it's the ICW, rarely the beach (EOP or Pickens) and I know I'm missing the morning action.

Good suggestions. I see the bait fish so I KNOW the big guys are there, but they may be full and lazy come 3 in the afternoon (I know I am).

If the pinfish are out, I ditch the cork and freeline the shrimp. If they are really thick, then minnows are the way to go.

Thanks guys- went out again this am lots of bait fish but no bites. Reports of trout caught today down the beach from where I was so I'm guessing it's my skill and timing. Beautiful morning though. If you can't catch fish it was at least nice to catch a beautiful sunrise.

If you have a net or trap I would try freelining a bull minnow, pinfish or finger mullet.
