Shell Point 7/18
I met my crew at the ramp around 9pm. Wind was blowing and the water was dirty. I tried a couple spot that had clearer water, but the wind was causing too many ripples. Went to a spot to get out of the wind and after a short stretch Celeste has her first ever gigged flounder.
A little ways later, Joe puts a 14" fish in the boat. We continue to work this area seeing baby flounder, crabs, gators, squid.............wait a minute, what was that. That was the biggest flounder of the night we just ran over. Backed up and took a look at him. Didn't look anything special until Joe stuck his gig in it. The fish stuck his tail up and his tail was 4 inches wide. A nice 20" fish that went 2 pounds 15 ounces.
We continue to work this wind protected area but can't find another keeper. We did manage to talk a nice mullet into jumping in the boat though.
It was getting late and I wanted to try one more spot that I got 11 off of last week. We work about 20 feet of shoreline and up in the shallows is Celestes' next victim. A nice 2 pound flounder. Then around the corner I see a sheephead and hit it real quick. That sheepy went 3 pounds 5 ounces. We get another 3+# sheephead and then Joe standing in the middle of the boat asks us to stop and back up. He had committed a drive by gigging on a shadow that turned out to be a 15" flounder. We end up putting 3 flounder and 2 sheephead in the boat on this spot. Celeste will have to wait til next time to revenge all the sheephead that have stolen her bait. She put some nice scars on a couple but they got away.
Ended the night/morning with 6 flounder, 2 sheeps and a mullet.
Here is one of the fish I took home. This 14" flounder had a 4 inch pinfish in his belly. I'm amazed that with all the finger mullet and mud minnows we see out there, most of the flounder have pinfish in their guts.
