Default BW Report

From about 10 days ago. My buddy who got me into kayak fishing, God bless him, come down from North Carolina and we made a couple of trips to blackwater. He caught some reds and I caught maybe 20 or so trout and a grizzled old redfish with a bite taken out of the bottom of his tail.

A few of the trout were keepers but were all released. My red and trout were on a Paul Brown Fat Boy, his fish on a gold spoon. We packed up around lunch and moved north of the interstate.

Launched at the Bagdad launch by the school and fished the mud flat straight across. Several reds, two slot, were caught in 12-24" of water.

He flew and didn't have a kayak, so he used the tandem. It actually worked really well with one person. It just squats in the back and looks like you're about to plane off all the time.

The red in the first pic looks big enough to take you for a ride

No bugs when we went. That's my first time fishing there, so I don't know if that's just because we were lucky or what. Seemed like a decent place to catch a slot red though.

As long as there is a breeze they are usually not too bad there. No breeze & they will drain you dry.
