Default Jim's not on fire 11/13

Got another late start waiting for it to warm up enough for my wife. We trolled the loop up the first channel to the right from Simpson River pier up to the "X" and down the wider channel back to launch. Caught 4 keeper specks, 2 on Gulp, one on Mirrolure, and one on gold DOA under a poppimg cork in the small channel & that was it. Pretty day and nice paddle despite the wind.

To the guy that passed me in the green Hobie, sorry I didn't speak, takes all of my concentration to be able to see the flourocarbon when tying on a new lure....

No problem. That was me in the hobie. The wind did pick up up. I was on my way back to the launch. The speck bite was on fire until 9am or so and then it slowed. The red bite was hit and miss. I was able to boat a few slots and a couple rats. Daxman did you find the sheep on the piling?

Chaps i acutally caught the Sheepshead while i was fishing close to the bank. Im not sure but were you the guy in the gray kayak this morning working the banks. I was in the red kayak watching somone pulling up fish after fish. I was fishing with live shrimp and new penny's but just couldnt find them. When i caught the Sheepshead i couldnt believe it, thought it was a flounder or something. Where i caught it, the water wasnt even that deep..

Yeah Dax that was me pulling up the fish in the hobie. I saw you in the red yak. You should of came over. I wouldn't cared. When I came around the bend I saw trout hitting bait and just timed it right. I was throwing a mirrodine. The action was hit and miss today. I managed a handful of reds up river too

Ok cool, well i wish i could of met you and introduced myself. Im sure i will see you out there again. I overloaded my yak today and the wind was killing me. One minute it was calm, then it would pick right back up. Tuesday i start my vacation so i will be back out there all this week. Can you give me some advice on what i should be using to catch some redfish and trout. Today i tried topwater, new penny, and a spinner bait and didnt have any luck. The only fish i caught was from live shrimp.

I've had some luck using gold spoons with the reds but only when I could see them didn't have any luck blind casting. The trout seemed to hit anything long as I got the speed right.

Troll until you get some bites then anchor and catch 'em. Watch the depthfinder and figure out where they were holding. Yesterday they were on a deep drop (5 to 15 ft) towards the "x" and in the main channel of the river by the pier. Today the numbers were down for me, but the size was much bigger. They also moved up on the shallow side of the drop in 4 to 5 feet of water.

Good luck

Well I'm definately no expert but I like to slow troll a grub, gulp or jerk shad near the bottom until I find the fish. Once I find fish I'll work a mirrodine, etc... They seem to be in a little deeper water, 6-8'. I like to work unusual areas (bends, cuts, channels, drop offs, etc..) in the river that seem fishy. I always keep my eyes scanning looking for any signs of life that has potential to work, birds, bait fish, etc.. Since I upgraded to a hobie, I noticed I like to cover more water to find fish. Good luck.
