Default Bay 4/30/16

I launched just before daylight, headed to some docks. Nothing happening around the docks, so I backed off and started blind casting a large tear-drop shaped depression I knew was there from wading the area and google maps.

Iím throwing the basic 3, zara-spook, mr-17 & soft plastic/jig head. Mainly throwing the jig this morning as there is not much surface activity, but I KNOW this shallow hole holds fish and itís just a matter of finding them.

Over the next couple hours, I managed 5 trout, 1 nice 24Ē, 6- 7lb. red, 1 pinfish, 2 croakers and 1 catfish.
I searched hard for a flounder to round things out but as usual the flatfish escape me. Brought a few home to share w/ my kids families.

I caught the red on a bone colored IMA skimmer in a wind protected pocket about 2 ft. of water, my line had tangled around the tip, stopped my retrieve and when I took up slack and the lure moved, the red slammed it. The largest trout came off a depth change area that had strong water flow; she nailed the jig as soon as it hit the water.

Wind picked up, shut the bite down and I called it a morning. Nearby woods on the way home I had spotted a patch of blackberries or dew berries as I call them. Picked a large coffee cup full for a sweet snack on the way home.
