I got out on the water a little later than I wanted to due to some electrical repairs. It's always something.
The west wind made it tough to fish the basin. I threw a zara spook against the bank north of the Brian Island point for about an hour: nada. Mullet were there, but I didn't see anything scaring them.
I then went up the river and fished the mosquito creek mouths and the banks of Strickland Creek: nada. Again, a fair mouth of bait, but nothing scaring them.
I came across some large Menhaden schools in the ICW on the way back to the ramp. They were thickest about half a mile south of Highbridge. They were moving south with the incoming tide. Nothing seemed to be after them. I put one on a hook and fished it under the schools, then fished it at a couple of creek mouths: nada.
Slow day, but it's good to know the Menhaden are coming back through. Anybody looking to catch an early kingfish could've scored a full live well in short order today.
I surf fished yesterday and early last night: caught the biggest ladyfish I think I've ever seen. Did anybody else try to feed some fish on that big moon?
