I began working the south shoreline tossing my favorite Pink Skitterwalk (top-water lure).
It wasn’t too long before I hooked my first red.
I lost a few more red fish. I am guessing my hooks were a bit dull. I could have switched lures but with my stubborn attitude I decided against it. Boy was that dumb, as I ended the day losing five potential fish.
After missing a few fish I worked my way along the shoreline to the north entrance connecting Keith Lake to the inter-coastal waterway. The wind and waves were increasing. I left the shoreline and worked a Paul Brown’s Original Corky in hopes of catching some trout. The trout bite was slow and after an hour or so of bobbing in the rough waves I ended with only one trout to show.
I decided to head back to the protected side of the bay. I threw the Corky a few times along the grass and landed my first flounder.
The action on the Corky was slow so I switched back to my pink Skitterwalk. I lost another fish or two and then finally landed a slot red.
I then decided to switch to a pearl colored Berkley Gulp Swimming mullet. This landed me another flounder.
After a while I switched back to my Skitterwalk. I really enjoy throwing top-water lures. I continued working the shoreline, missed another fish or two and finally landed my last red of the day.
I promised my wife I would be home early so I was off the water between noon and 1pm. It turned out to be a good day. I ended with a slam, one trout, two flounder and a handful of redfish.
All redfish and flounder were caught tight up against grass. The redfish seemed to come from protected coves.
