Hit the harbor with Hairball and Hairball Jr. for a little fishing. We dunked the boat right at high tide and proceeded to locate a little more bait. I had 3 dozen mud minnows and some frozen shrimp and we added 2 dozen finger mullet and 2 dozen live shrimp to the live well in short order. Shrimp were all good sized and several were huge. Fished several spots with no keepers coming to the boat, but caught enough smaller reds to make fall fishing look more promising. Trekked out to the black drum spot and put 3 keepers in the boat with the largest @ 21" +/-. Had trouble keeping the bait where we wanted it due to current, so we pulled up and moved. Set up near the castle and tried hard to get the bonnethead we saw to take a bait. Moved a little more and continued to pull in the 12"-13" reds. Hooked up with several 12" + ladyfish as well. Didn’t take any pics on the water, but will post a few of the end results when I get them downloaded. Hot bait of the day (for reds and ladyfish)was mud minnows and live shrimp fished 16" under a cork. No takers on mullet at all. Black drum were caught on frozen shrimp fished on a Carolina rig with a 3/4 oz. weight. Water temps were in the low 80’s with the high topping out at 82*. All in all a great day on the water.
