    Sisters Creek 11/28ish

    I've been buzzing around the sisters Creek area for the last few days. I caught a 23" flounder on a free-lined live shrimp with a split shot back in a shallows on the incoming tide. I think it's my PB flounder. I fished that area for a while after trying to pick up another one but I didn't get one...



    I only cooked half of it and it was plenty for a meal for my family.



    Had a great time today in good fishing conditions... outgoing tide, 75 degrees and a light breeze. Hit some bridge pilings on the high slack tide this morning looking for sheep's but only found seabass. Then we fished the ferry dock and the docks down the bank from it looking for some flounder but didn't get any. Fished the little jetties and decided to hit some spots back in the creeks. Jake picked up a 16" flounder on a shrimp on a jighead to bring home for dinner. We trolled around throwing gulps and caught about 40 14" trout, all the same size, not one legal. caught a bunch of rat reds too.

    Decided to anchor up in the "honey hole" and soak some frozen mullet. I hooked a nice flounder (maybe 20") that spit the hook as soon as he saw the boat. Jake catches this 33" red that was the fish of the day.



    Then... More 14" trout...

    Had to use every skill I have to find the fish today but that kinda made it fun.

    Nice report Jizzo! Way to make it work! Some days can feel like a complete wash and suddenly after a last ditch effort can quickly become epic. That's Vilano in a nut shell...

    Glad to hear the frozen mullet produced. I stashed a couple bags from the run. Any flounder over 20" is a quality fish in my book...nice.

    And every trout was meaty. I would have definitely eaten some of those if they were legal.

    Thats why it's called "fishing" not "catching" right? If it was always easy it wouldn't be as much fun.

    I did the same thing caught a bunch on the beach when they were running hard and bagged em up for the freezer. I wish I would have frozen them better though. What's the best way to keep them?
