Decided to do a little fishing this afternoon with the flood tide. I have not tried flood tide fishing in the middle of the day yet and figured I would give it a try. Was joined by a buddy of mine and we were off by about 1.
Pulled up to my first flood flatt and saw 1 tail. He then disappeared so we moved to the next flat.
Pulled up to the second flatt and saw nothing, looked a little more before we decided to just start working the creeks and islands.
Then it was on.
My buddy was throwing a rootbeer DOA shrimp and flipped up along the grass and I heard his drag start screaming and the yak took off.
After a good little fight we had our first red of the day.
Then we worked our way out of a creek where we each picked up a trout or two and I pulled in a little blue fish.
Pulled up on one of my favorite oyster bed/ grass island and threw my spinner up in the thin grass and it got slammed. My turn for the sleigh ride. After another good fight I bring this bad boy into my yak
we kept working more islands and shorelines and picked up a trout or two here or there. Saw a few reds tails and were running out of water so we had to call it a day.
No lengths on the fish but they were both solid.
Not a bad way to play hooky from school.
