Went down to the old Crystal Beach Pier this afternoon to relax, see what was going on. Beach almost deserted, low tide and pretty much calm. Only had some frozen shrimp for bait, raked for some fleas but nothing. Had tied some 20# fluorocarbon pompano rigs and wanted to try them.
Tried several places, but nothing. Went back to the old pilings and tossed it near the end of them.
After about 15 minutes of soaking, something took it. Not much fight to it, like pulling in dead weight. A barely (28") over red fish
Let him swim away and back to the house to warm up.
