I'm sure they are there, haven't been out there in a while though so I can't say for sure. Still a little early for the bite to pick up really hard though. Have been doing ok in a couple of the bayous with decent oyster beds, but as far as Sikes, I think it will be a few weeks before the bite is really on.
Ive been doing real well there. I caught 10 each trip Ive made this year. I fish from a boat against the pilings. I use crabs on the bottom. My secret weapon is not my bait, but the rod I use. Its a flyrod with a spinning reel on it. I see the hits before I feel them. Once i hook them its big fun. Lighten up for sheeps. They are there.
