Went out this a.m. to test out the new Lowrance Elite 3x fish finder/depth finder I installed on the kayak.

I launched about 08:30am, and cruised around the whole grassy island area and back toward some of the docks near some of the houses. I got a couple of bites, one good one, but no catches, skunked, lol. I was using some dead shrimp on one pole and casting a Gulp shrimp lure on the other. I don't feel to bad about getting skunked as I didn't see the other couple guys on boats having much luck either.

Just before I left I saw another guy pull up and launch an orange kayak, I hope he had some better luck but I had to call it a day at 10:30am. I wanted to get out before the rain came.

I'm new at using a depth/fish finder but one thing I did notice is that there is almost no structure in that area on the bottom to hold fish. I think if some one were to invest in a small artificial reef of some sort dropped in one of the 20 foot deep areas it would draw more fish in.

This time of year for the most part the fish are not close to the bank. They will be on the deeper drop offs and ledges. Congrats on getting out
