Default 7/1/08 Escambia river

Started out in some dense fog around 5:30a.m. Fished just south of Jim's Fish Camp and managed one undersized speck and three little white trout. Had a couple more strikes, but either I wasn't used to the popping cork or they were small ones. After a couple hours we moved upriver past the power poles a way and fished with some plastic worms and hooked two keeper bass and some dinks. Ended the day under beautiful blue skies and flat calm water.



I did have some strikes on topwater, but they were tiny fish. Not a whole lot of action. I guess maybe the tide was wrong? Hopefully next time we'll do a little better.

Nope, only spots we fished was the bank that Jim's is on and the bank opposite of Jim's on the south side of the bridge. After that the sun was up quite a bit and we moved farther upriver to get some bass. I'll make sure we get to that spot next time we go out.



Edit: High tide was at 10:13 or thereabouts. We fished around 6-7. Is that a bad tide? Should we have bette rluck if we fish an outgoing tide?



Thanks.

Sounds logical, I figured the rain would mess some stuff up. We were about as far south as you could go and still have grass. There were also millions of mullet all over the place(big ones, not bait). Our fishfinder was lit up the whole time.
