Default ICW Wind Thunder Lightning Specks 12/10/08

ICW 90MPH Wind-Flood Rain-Specks Specks 12/10/08<DIV class=post-text>Launched under the 59 Bridge into the ICW in Lightning--Strong Wind--Thunder. Got to the first spot--Bud had the first Speck on---and so it went. Plenty of Specks--Skip Jack and Small Reds. They hit shrimp--grubs and plugs. Then the rain started--plenty of Hard-Heavy-Boat Filling Rain. I asked my fishing partner to hit the Bilge Pump---nothing. Its amazing how fast a hard rain can fill a boat and there is no bailing a Bass Tracker Boat. So off to the Boat Ramp we went--put the boat back on the trailer and drained it. End of fishing trip. I didnt take many pic--raining to hard and cant get Camera wet. But the fish are there--plenty of them.
As we were taking out a couple staying across the ICW in a camper park drove up. They said they watched us launch at daylight and wanted to meet the men who would go fishing in weather like that. Nice people. Got Damp--Time to go--Home--hot bath--Warm Clothes--Nap Time.

Ya got a pair, that's for sure.



How about telling me how you were catching the specks?

Tight against the bank or out a ways?

How deep and what presentation?



My ex-paw-in-law lives on the ICW and hasn't caught many fish from his dock.

Thought I'd take him on a boat and show him what he's missing!!!

hjorgan:

The ICW can be a very good place---but it takes some trial/error. Find some structure-pilings-stumps or bridges. The Foley By-Pass Bridge over the ICW has most of this. LULUs at 59 HY bridge has most of what i look for. LULUS marina and other Marinas-finish and unfinished all hold fish. The rock wall on the ICW will hold Reds and Black drum.

The ICW in BaldwinCois a little differant than the ICW in Fla. The water is a little more sheltered. Dont forget trolling---just bounce a shrimp/grub off the bottom--hold on. As with any fishing--Weather--Tide--Time Of Day has a lot to do with catching fish--Good Luck--BT66

Today we didnt fish very long but we caught fish in 3-8 feet of waterclose to stumps and other man madestructure. I feel confident that we could havecaught someReds and plenty of specks had the weather not turned bad.BT66
