Default North Escambia Bay Specks

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">We (Beerfish and I) launched at Archie Glover around 11am and due to the low water (if the older gentleman that gave me a heads up reads this, THANK YOU SIR for the warning) had to use the trolling motor to get out of the channel. Finally got the motor down and headed toward the train trusses at Mulat Bayou. We managed two small flounder on nuclear gulp 3" shrimp around the trusses before heading over towards the mouth of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1lace w:st="on"><st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Escambia</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">River</st1:PlaceType></st1lace>. <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">Fished the channel heading towards the Hwy. 90 Bridge without any results. Finally the tide starting moving and we had our first speck of the day. <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">The fish were in the middle of the inlet in about 4 feet of water. <U>All</U> fish were caught on Mirrodine lures fished slooooowwwww. Kai fished with Gulps, a Catch 2000, tubes, and many other baits and finally managed a fish on a cork bait. I caught fish steady the whole time with the mirrorlure. None of the strikes happened when the bait was moving. Biggest fish of the day was lost due to the fact I hadn?t moved the bait in a couple of minutes and wasn?t ready for the strike. The key was slow, slow, and slow.<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">This is paradise.....What a beautiful day on the water!!!!<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">Nick
