Fishing Fever

Started out this morning thinking I’ll try some new area and what a good decision. Pushed up the Cooper and fished a side creek that I’ve passed for at least 20 yrs but went in the creek and found a flounder first fish in the boat.

Tide started pushing out and shortly after landed a nice Red

As the tide pushed out I fished it accordingly with trolling motor keeping me near the grass. Managed a second flounder and about 8 reds (all released) and pushed to clouter creek and found nothing but swung across to Goose Creek and found about 5 trout for another slam but they were too small even for a photo shoot. Weather was chilly early but warmed up quickly as long as you were in the sun. Even with the wind picking up a Great day on the water.


What’d you catch them on FR?

The founder of whisperer !!!

The man knows how to catch em.

Hammurred and gang I still use live for flounder. This has worked for me and if it ain’t broke Y fixit. The only thing I’ve changed recently is a 1/4 oz egg weight with a short leader (8” ) or more and a 1/0 circle hook. Feel I’ll get a better hookup and it does good except when a big red hits it not enough hook to get them to the boat. Which that doesn’t matter because I only tag out of the slot reds anyway. Still use that 1/4 oz jig head when I break off the circle hook. Two setup each.
