4-18-15 Bay Report

Forgot phone so no pics but had a decent morning in the kayak. Put in at 5:45am at the NE side of of the 77 bridge and worked the North shoreline East to Gainer Bayou and a little ways up it.

Foggy as all get out for a few hours, very little going on till about 7. Saw a fish pushing water and cast in front and was rewarded with a 17" trout. Few casts later another just under 15". Work the cut going to Daffin and hooked a solid 20" red, little further in yielded 2 more rat reds. Down to Gainer landed another 14" trout and one more 16" red.

Topwater bite was nonexistent even with calm water. All the fish were caught on Storm swimbait white in color.

Saw plenty of bait fish and crabs. Not sure what all of this rainfall will do to the bay this coming week. Anyway back at the truck by 11:30.

A wade fisherman is the most simplistic but the most adept for the quarry they are after. They are immersed in their challenger's habitat and are in tune with the subtle changes of current, temperature and bottom. In order to be successful at this noble and primal fishing form one must be submerged from their goobs to their boobs, anyone doing this outside of that boundary is either sunbathing or swimming.

    Sounds like plenty of action.

    Surpringlingy enough the bay is still pretty clear as of today around downtown. Could have been a rising tide, but looked like only moderately stained bay water. Who knows. Hoping to go after red grouper and jacks this Friday. Will report what i see bay-wise and near shore

    Thanks PH for the water report. Thinking about putting in at Lake Huntington and work toward the shipyard this Saturday if the wind is decent.
