Default 3 mile and bayou report.

launched at 17th this morning pretty rough but i thought the reds would be biting. man was i wrong. trolled all the way to the hump of the 3 mile where i stopped to reel in the rods, when i looked up i was FAR away from the bridge. i went to paddle back to the bridge but the wind and waves had something else in mind. after kickin my ass to make it back and barely succeeding (thought bout callin someone to meet me in GB with my jeep). i decided to fish the bayou a little bit. first cast had a red fallow it all the way back to the yak. drifted down some more and got this trout





next drift lost a fish, same results next drift, then i got a solid hit. it started pullin drag and was fightin good. i jus knew i had a stud trout on or a red. then i see some color. WTF is that? got his head up and threw it in the yak. STRIPED BASS in bayou TEXAR?





drifted a few more times lost another fish and then the bite dead. drifted another 4 times with no hits and called it a day.

Nice job, man. It always starts great when you leave going with the wind, but then comes the part where you turn around and have to fight it coming back :doh!



I can't tell for sure but that may actually be a hybrid bass. Cross between a striper and white bass. They typically have the broken lines rather than stripers that usually have straight even lines. Regardless, good catch, I'm still trying to get one of them myself.



Thanks,

Alex



Edited to add: Oops, looks like Dylan beat me to the punch.

You can tell a hybrid by the lines or stripes, solid its a striper, broken lines, Hybrid. Other ways also but thats the easiest, you have a hybrid, called a wiper.

Yes that wind can be killer on the trip back, I have buck some major wind and waves.

rough is an understatement. i know a little bit bout bein in physcially demanding conditions since i run cross country and this was will breaking stuff. i didnt make any ground for the longest time then when i cross under the bridge and got hit with harder winds and bigger waves i was like damn. i would have fished the bayou a lot longer but i was worn out. for like every 5ft i made i lost 4ft :hotsun



thats the kinda stuff that will make you want to quit but i thought it was fun cause the waves were comin over the front :letsdrink

that sounds like a summer trip a friend and i made in perdido pass where it took 1 hour just to get from the jettis to the bridge. to say the least we said screw it by the marine police station and drifted to tackey jacks for a well deserved but hard to drink beers. that current was litterally paddle 5 ft, lose 4 11/12 foot, not to mention the swell that you dissappeared in. It happens, but you learn quickly to better judge conditions vs taking a chance
