8/15 Deep Creek

Was itching to out today even tho the tides weren't that great launched at mayport and headed to deep creek, yep the tide was already slack. Super high. No movement.
After hooking onto a small flounder and small troutImageUploadedByTapatalk1345082263.379691.jpg I thought eh maybe it won't be so bad.

My buddy lost a decent (probably undersized) red and my brother land another trout ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345082372.965222.jpg


Saw another boat in the creek and they said the only pulled up a couple small flounders.

At the point my drag started screaming!
Took me awhile (I use 10lb test) but I snagged this bad boy!

I'm so happy it wasn't over sized bc it inhaled my yozuri! I didn't want to have to cut the leader and put it back in the water bc you know those yozuris aren't cheap!

Finished up with a nice flounder, keeper trout to finish up the slam. Also snagged a few jacks and a couple lady's on top water to end the day.

    It def was, especially on light tackle! I should have weighed it when I caught it but didn't weight it til I got home and it weighed in at a lil over 6lbs.

    Booyuhka - which Yozui you using? My brother uses them almost exclusively in Sarasota. I've never had much luck with them. Nice report.

    yea what kind of yozuri were you using? and is that all you used?
  • BooyuhkaBooyuhka Posts: 210 Officer
    I caught this red on crystal minnow 4 3/8". I actually never used them before yesterday (the lures were always so expensive) but i grabbed a couple at the west marine tent sale a couple weeks ago. It wasn't a bad way to break in that bad boy

    I caught the red and a jack on the yozuri.

    Also caught the trout and a flounder on a z-man soft bait on jig head.

    My brother caught his flounder and a trout on live finger mullet but also caught a trout, jack and lady on a mirro lure top water.

    Nice catch!
    Nice pliers.

    Deep creek connects to sisters on the east. South of fort george inlet.

    Pliers were on sale at strike zone! I don't know what brand it is but it's on the sale rack right up front, $25 I think.
    It's aluminum anodized super lightweight and has a line cutter that works great with braided line too
