Got up early to yak fish some docks in the sound. Loaded up the prowler and got therejust before sunrise.



I started out throwing topwater. Got a few redfish blow ups on it, but the fish were short striking. Switched to a gold spoon and that did the trick. I hooked a bull red that headed straight for and around a piling, and I somehow got over there and unwrapped the line (thank goodness for braid). I fought him for a little longer and landed him:





Ran into what I think was a small school of reds later. I pulled a slot fish out of there:



Both fish were released alive and healthy. What a way to start the day!

Turbow (10/5/2008)Nice report. Where do you find most of the reds hanging out when you are fishing around the docks?
Scattered around. Some are tight to the docks, some are in the grass between the docks, and some are out in front of the docks.

Roger. Thanks. I fish the sound near Hurlburt in my kayak and haven't had too much luck with good sized reds in months. There has been a lot more activity lately with flounder and specks so I am hoping a few good reds will come through.

Good report and great pics. What topwater lure were you throwing? Sometimes they will scarf up the tiny topwater lures if they are blowing up and missing the standard size. It is neat that you can downshift from the mako to a kayak and still get on the fish. You obviously have fishing in your blood.
