Smile Before the storms.

Went to White Point after checking the winds and radar seeing some gusty winds and overcast skies but no storms... yet. Conditions were a little intimidating to look at from shore, but didn't appear unsafe and it looked feasible to anchor off the bow with the wind to keep me pointed into the waves. Worked out well.

Went directly to the midbay bridge where it starts getting deep (20'+) and looked for marks on the FF. Found some right off the bat. First cast, 15" jack blew up a live shrimp pretty much right as it hit the water.

Moved around trying to find some marks to anchor over. Didn't take too long, and had a nice 29" black drum landed. Marks disappeared so I picked up anchor moved around looking for fish and only had to move about 20 yards and got into 3 more black drum from 26-32" over the next hour or two. Eventually the bite cooled off and I tried moving around looking for more fish, but only found hardheads.

Decided to drift (if you can call it that, I was tracking speed on ground at 2+ MPH from the wind alone) some live shrimp across the shallower flats off white point, only ended up feeding hardheads my live shrimp and got a 17" jack on a gold spoon. Man did he want that spoon, I swear he backflipped into the air to get it. Tried hitting the deeper spots real quick on the way back to the truck, but didn't see anything on the FF and they wanted nothing to do with my live shrimp or spoon so I packed it up. All said and done a good day fishing especially considering I wasn't expecting to be able to hit the water today. I'm somewhat surprised I didn't hook up with any reds though. Now if only all these storms disappear so I can troll the Gulf tomorrow that'd be great!






Edit: Also hooked a remora, which I've never seen at mibday, and saw TONS of huge jellyfish. Had a weird blip, where something large went up under my transducer and made me think I was sitting in 3' depth instead of 20' for a few seconds. Also, ran into some crazy guys swimming around spearfishing out a few hundred yards on the bridge pylons, said there were sheepshead on the structure. It was a little choppy and windy for me to attempt sticking that close to the bridge though, so I didn't hook into any.

Cliphord, I'm trying to get out in the Gulf every chance I get, weather permitting. Which means my fishing days in the inshore will be a backup plan for the next few weekends. I'll be looking to fish the next couple weekends for sure though.
