Default Dec. 2018 Report.....

Took sometime yesterday but we did eventually find some "pullage".
Lot's of small spikes with 1 keeper.
Found a school of Reds caught & released 4.
Small Flounders, Blues & another lost Ladyfish.
Harold had a slam, which opened me up to a volley of trash talk.
Z-man / Gulp / X-raps - no MirrOlure love..... ICM

have they done anything about the shoaling about midways up? I was following a track I had laid just 2 weeks prior headed into the bay and WHAM hard aground. I was hugging the right but not quite far enough evidently. Lucky for me soft sandy bottom. Knocked the paint off my skeg and gave me a sand bath. 4 men and min later we were back on the bait hunt

You still have to be careful how close you get to the right side going out.

The track I laid was pre storm and when I was hard aground was post storm. I should have known better depth went from 5ft to 5inches in about 10ft.

You broke the Cardinal Rule. The first & most important rule of "web fishing" by posting location pictures.
I tried to protect you, but you have opened yourself & dock to the masses.
If your plans were to blow up a spot you have achieved it
Let me add to your foolishness & stupidity.
There is a school of maybe 50 Reds under your dock. Falling tide is best.
If anyone needs directions please PM me.

Just hoping you will be serving hot coffee for all your new friends that will be stopping by.
"I take mine black...."........ ICM
