Default Destin Crab Island Drift 11/6

Sorry for not posting any pictures, but since I've managed to screw up my old gopro and my crappy digital camera I haven't got a new camera yet to capture the "moment". Plus, none of my fish were in the impressive category.

I went to the Destin bridge and crab island grass flats to enjoy the water and sun. Wind was blowing ENE, so I paddled up wind, threw out the drift sock, and floated along casting between my mirrodine, swim bait, and DOA shrimp. Caught 7 short reds with the biggest being about 16", 1 keeper trout 16" or so, and a lady fish.

As I was crusing under the bridge, I did see a ton of sheephead and spade fish, but didn't feel like setting up a line for them. I did see a small school of reds under the bridge and one bull red on the grass flats. I might go out again soon and fish bridge for those sheephead and spadefish. Tight lines everyone!
