Road trip - Matanzas 3/21
Took a road trip to the east coast to meet up with friends and family. Worked in a few hours of fishing off the bank at Matanzas. I'm not terribly familiar with the area but a friend of mine told me where to fish so I worked the bank in the area he told me. On my second cast I had a nice redfish blow up my spook but it didn't take it. Shortly after I landed a small jack. Action slowed down after that, it was a pretty strong low tide from the look of it. I also had a blowup from what I think was a trout. So basically I lost more fish than I landed but I just wanted to kill some time and wet a line for a bit since I knew I wouldn't be able to fish the rest of the weekend. I fished off the beach behind our condo as well and could see tails in the waves but nobody would chew. I never have much luck fishing in the surf so I gave up on that pretty quick. Today I went to Cumberland Island which is always pretty cool. The tide there was a +6.6 in the morning and a -1.3 in the afternoon which impressed me. They have huge tidal swings up there! Fun weekend, wish I'd gotten to fish more or caught something worth taking a pic of but thems the breaks especially fishing unfamiliar places for short periods of time.
