Don and I had a corporate trip today from the Gaylord. We also had Taylor Clark with Taylor Made Adventures helping us today. We each had very full boats with 4 on mine and Don’s boat and 5 on Taylor’s. It was tough to catch the bigger fish. The smaller under 10” fish were pretty much everywhere.
We started off at the island and caught some there then move to the point at Murrell there were more fish here but all were small for the most part. I tried Meadowmere as well as the west end of the island with little success. Then I tied on some 3” Illusion Lures Sassy shads on ? ounce jig heads and headed for the bubbles. The trick seemed to be not letting the bait sink to deep and then use a slow retrieve. We caught most of our 15 keepers here in the last hour we fished. It was close in fishing and if I offended anyone I apologize. It is hard to run the trolling motor and take fish off at the same time. Don tried Rockledge with very little results as well. The birds did not work much while we were out that morning. I think the fishing is better in the evening right now.
Water was muddy and 61 to 65 degrees. All our good fish were caught on the sassy shads with a few on Lead Babies on various colors. I caught fish as shallow as 11’ and as deep as 21’.
I just want two things for the wind to die and the water to clear!
