I had today off before finishing up ACLS tomorrow so, what better to do then go fish? I have been fishing further south lately, and decided to hit up 42 for the day. The wind was manageable and I was able to find a few fish. I have been finding lots of trout lately, and today was no different. I found a few smaller schools of reds, but I couldn't get into a good position to target them. The only shot I had was with a GULP crab on the bottom, that happened to get eaten as a school swam by, but since I had no idea they were there, all I saw was the rod bend, and the leader break as they swam off. Oh well, thats what I get for basically fishing with bait. I saw lots of singles, but once again, not until I spooked them off as I drifted a little too close. It would be really nice if there was any movement, or some tailing going on so I could get back on the fish, and start using the flyrod.
Two of todays fish. I did not measure any, just a quick pic, then back in the water.
Thats what I was doing with the GULP crab. I had tossed it out to where I thought the school would eventually come by, and was casting a twitch bait in a circle pattern waiting for a sign of life.
I will have to try that trick. I know what you mean about people not being sneaky at all. I know I have a TON to learn about flats fishing, but so far I know to go slow, stay low if possible, and look for ANYTHING out of place, and if you see anything out of place, cast there.
