Took the kayak out for the first time in a while this morning to the southern side of Mosquito lagoon. Was greeted by calm wind and water but a bunch of cloud cover. Started seeing fish immediately. Threw top water with a few blow up but couldn't connect. Threw a shrimp on a cal jig head and fish on.
Released to fight another day. Determined to get one on top water I threw the rapala skitterwalk and immediately got hit again but its a miss. Threw back in the same hole and wham, 18" trout.
Also released. Top water slowed down and the sun came out for a little so I threw on the 3" gulp shrimp in new penny color. Instant hookup on a drag screaming red but spit the hook. Oh well. Got the heart racing.
Water was clear and calm. A lot of bait and fish everywhere. A few people were also out on the water but couldn't see if anyone was doing any better. Tight lines!!!

I was real close to launching at eddy creek. I never fished that side. Always next time. I was just on the other side anyways but sometimes that makes a big difference. Good job on the fish. You're right about the weather tho. It was nice.
