Default 3 mile area 8/22 stoopid late

decided to hit 3 mile since the incoming tide seemed right. high tide was supposed to be around 4:15A so i was in the water by 1A. there was action under almost every light on the bridge, water was slick as glass and the fish could care less that i was there. there were big bulls busting just feet from me, scared the shat out of me a few times. trillions of stupid little ladyfish too... threw several lures at them, finally got some bites with a crocodile spoon. had several big bull hook-ups and then one that broke me off and took my spoon, so i retied and hooked up another big red. he drug me around pretty good, had tons of energy in him. while fighting him, there were other bulls swimming right up to the yak, i could have literally reached down and touched one of them!! very cool. this red ended up being 30". gave up on finding any keepers and paddled my arss off towards some docklights i saw in the distance. tied my brand new yosuri which i thought looked awesome and the second cast landed a 25" red. the specks were not interested in my beautiful new lure so i tied on a smaller twitch bait and got me two keeper specs. by then it was 4AM so i called it and split.

Ox I was fishing near the hump. I seem to always find bull reds out there, I don't think I've ever caught a keeper out there. The tide definitely had a lot to do with the activity.

I've fished the three mile quite a few times for bulls. It is a lot of fun and tiring. I prefer the gulf breeze side. If you want to head out let me know and I'll go with ya. Plus, I haven't had my new hobie out there yet.
