Default Joe's Bayou

H-MANEOD and I woke up with plans to troll nearshore, unfortunately the surf and wind forecast changed for the worse overnight so we launched at Joe's Bayou instead.

In the first ten minutes I had a flounder spit the hook and what felt like a slot red cut my mainline by going around two dock pilings on the initial run since I had the drag set light for specks and flounder. This fish proceeded to follow us three or four docks (about 200 yards) by popping up with my popping cork here and there, taunting us as we paddled down the shoreline, flat out refusing to take anything we threw at it over the course of about 30 minutes.

I landed a couple specks and a flounder on a spare popping cork but never had another red hookup, so no slam today. Thursday I couldn't land a flounder, but got the other two! One day I'll get all three to play along. Today's fish were nothing huge, but I got a couple keepers.

I also threw a gold spoon, yozuri hard plastic suspending shrimp, mirrodine suspending mullet, some 4" white mullet gulp and tiger bait matrix on 1/8oz with no hits.

H-MANEOD landed 4 reds, the biggest at 24" and on a gold spoon in some real skinny water.

Not bad all! Playing the weather gets touch quick.

Still better than working all day!

It is always nice to bring a few fish home for dinner if the conditions allow it. Thanks for posting the report and the photo.
