Default Simpson River take 2

Decided to try Simpson river for the second time ever today. Got 2 lower slot reds (not worth a picture) within the first hour and half, then nothing the rest of the day. Wind picked up pretty good by 1000 so moved to the bridge for some sheepies but they evaded me, or they weren't there to begin with.

I dropped in at Simpson today as well. First time for me. Have so much to learn about the area still...never felt like I was ever going to catch anything...and didn't.
Wind was brutal.

Both times I've been there I started out in the bay around the first grass island you can see and have hooked up on some reds but they have been either below slot or just barely legal, nothing to get excited about but at least it's something.

A buddy and I went to the Simpson River yesterday afternoon as well. We might have seen you Salt4Lifer. Wind was a PITA. No way we would have gone out without Hobies. We pedaled up to the X, hung around the deep holes, but no takers. Trolled swim baits up and back with no luck. I would like to have gone south of the bridge, but the water was pretty rough.

Yes, I was just coming back in. I didn't venture out in the rough stuff where you guys went though. Normally, I wouldn't have gone but I've been going stir crazy. Even made a video that had no fish catching in it lmao! That's desperate.

Yep, that was you! Nice video... I went by you about 2 in a dune Revo. My buddy wanted to go up river and check out the deeper holes but it was a challenge. I fish that area a lot and seem to catch more fish south of the road, although we did hook a few trout on the Dead River about 1/2 way to the X several weeks ago. I don't seem to have much luck on the Simpson River which is the large river section that goes by the launch... I did catch a 34" red last week out in the bay. This time of year there will be schools of reds out in the open river but you have to be lucky or chase the pelicans. Let me know when you are going next and perhaps we can join you. Cold is OK, but wind is a serious drag...

Two slots of any size at Simpsons is a good day IMO.

Looking at the map, I see what you are referring to by the "X". I would love to have some company next time out...and someone that knows the water over there lol I felt like I was fishing in a mud puddle. Cold, rain, snow...anything is better than wind.
