Default Burnt Mill Creek today

Been a lurker on the forum for a while. Decided to sign up and contribute.

Live in PCB and fish Burnt Mill Creek and ICW mostly.

Burnt Mill was good today with the incoming afternoon tide.
Wound up with 2 reds (1 25" and 1 undersized), 1 16" sheepshead (first one I've caught in brackish water),7 striped bass and 6 black drum.

All caught on live shrimp.

Again, this is the best board around..so if you guys don't mind me posting info for the PCB area I'll be a regular!

tFished Burnt Mill Creek last week but there was too much fresh water flowing out from the high tide that was just staring out. We didn't do diddly. So went out in the bay a few hundred yards from creek mouth and fishing in 5 to 7 ft water. Beautiful afternoon, we waited until about noon to launch due to rain storms. Caught 2 big sailcats on top water red/white Chug Bug and one on a grub fishing the botton. Have never caught a cat on top water lure. That was it, no specks, red, etc.

I also fish the Intercoastal out of Point Washington and the lower Choctawhatchee River out of Black Creek Lodge.

Glad to see you are in PCB. We need some company on the forum from over this way.

I hit Burnt Mill Creek Thursday night. Caught 2 reds and 5 or 6 trout. Of I course I lost 2 oversized reds. Switched to a t160 about a month ago - doesn't quite respond as well to paddling 1 handed with 30" of angry redfish on the other end!!! Wound up fighting the boat and not the fish. Oh well - I guess I will just have to figure it out.
Maybe I will see y'all out there....

Were you fishing north or south of the bridge?

Stripers were below average. <20" mostly.

I was fishing north of the bridge.

If I go north of the bridge I always bring live shrimp. If I head south towards the bay, its artificial. Not sure why but it seems to always work better that way.

There are several deep holes north of the bridge that always hold fish..easier to snag em throwing a live shrimp.

You've got me convinced. I think I will try it this afternoon. I have fished several deep holes up there this past fall and winter with artificials.
