I fished today with repeat client Travis, his sons and dad today and it was a blast. It started off a little slow but really built up steam towards the end of the morning. I found a few fish right of the bat at the mouth of Hickory Creek on the north bank and we caught some good sized Sandies there. I noticed birds working Hobie Point and went to investigate and the two boys Gavin and Eric caught some more Sandies and Gavin with the help of Granddad Mark even caught nice keeper Hybrid Striper.
When the action slowed there I took us to a ledge near the old 121 cut and the fish were stacked in there like cord wood! For two solid hours it was one fish after another, with Eric, the six-year old literally catching 53 fish on his own! Granddad Mark even caught a good sized Hybrid Striper as well.
Fish were all over today from 18 feet to 40 feet and stacked up everywhere in between. The water temperature was 66 degrees and fair visibility to about 3 feet on a big slab. I noticed that smaller 1 ounce slabs caught more but smaller fish and a 2 ounce Prune Picker from Six Old Geezers caught fewer but bigger fish. Most of our presentations today just involved getting the bait to the bottom and a slow steady raise and drop of the slab. Today was one of those days when it didn’t matter what you dropped it was going to catch fish. The count for the morning ended at 36 Sandies and 3 Hybrid Stripers, with well over 100 caught and released.
