Homosassa 7/29 Trout Sea bass and a Mackerel drifting
Lee joined me today to do some drifting over the deep flats. I was in for a relaxing day and some good company so we hit the water at 7 AM and headed out to an old area I haven't visited in a year. The tide was incoming and the wind was south eats at about 12 making straight drift eastward a bit difficult. The water temp had dropped to 86 degrees so I figured the bite would be hot. WRONG. The bite was slow and the fish we caught were thin and lethargic. We moved around a bit but really never got much of a bite. We tried gulps and cut bait and both were slow but the cut bait brought more fish to the boat. The shark were tolerable on a good note. We did manage 6 lower slot trout, 6 decent sea bass and a good mackerel. A good dinner for Lee's and my family. Still a great day on the water until the wind stopped and the temps soared. We packed it in at around 12:30.
