The best time to fish is when you have time to fish, and sometimes it will surprise you. Tides were wrong, water is warming but i went today and put in at Simpsons. Fished the X's tot he flats of White...no luck. Finally found some fish around the bridge. Caught four large specks on a mirror lure (red/yellow) slow trolling behind my yak. Caught two small reds (14-16 inches) on a gulf shrimp near the grass. Just started fishing out of my yak, different, but fun.
