Went backwater fishing in some intracoastal tributaries in areas near Fort Mose state park. My friends Nils and Chris shared a canoe and I was on a kayak. High tide was at 10 AM and we fished the entire outgoing tide. Beautiful clear day with 80 degree temps.
Our first spot was in a deep channel running between two oyster beds. Immediately started catching nice size Spot that were all between 10"-12". The spot were hitting on shrimp and wouldn't touch mud minnows. Probably caught and released ~20 Spot between the 3 of us.</p>
Next we paddled to fish around some nearby docks and structure. By this time the afternoon sea breeze started kicking in at a steady 20 knots, pretty tough conditions. Using mud minnows we caught one small flounder and a monster oyster toad fish. Not a terrible day considering the blustery conditions, but I was hoping for some more flounder and a redfish.. We've already got plans to come visit our friend Nils again so we can do it again... Tight lines.
