Default WhooHooo! Great day!

I wish I had gotten more pics but I was a lil busy...

I hit the sound today for a solo trip. I just wanted to break in the new spinfisher. I hoped to find the reds in the skinny water but wasn't too terribly optimistic. Soon as I got to the water, a breeze picked up and I was a little disappointed because my whole plan revolved around sight-fishing. So, there I was, peddling aimlessly across a sand flat, wondering what direction to go...and I looked left to see 5 reds bunched up about 5 yds away! I carefully grabbed the rod and dropped a large savage shrimp right on top of them. They fought over it for a second and one ate it. It threw the hook immediately due to my drag being set too loose! I got serious then...

Even with the morning clouds and decent breeze, I continued seeing pods of reds all over the place. I couldn't get any more to bite so I switched to a smaller savage shrimp. It was on like donkey kong for the next few hours! I saw tons of slot fish but every damn time I tossed at a school, the only bull in it would beat the keepers to the punch...EVERY TIME! I lost count of how many I landed and didn't get many pics. Even though I saw slot fish all around, all my fish were between 27-32". I'm not complaining one bit lol...as least I don't have to clean fish today. Once the clouds cleared and the breeze stopped, they got lockjaw. I could see them EVERY WHERE but that was it. Breakfast time was over.

So anyways...the reds are BITING! This might've been the best day on the flats I've had in the last year or two.
