  1. Yeah they would have definitely went for some cut bait. Just too tired to paddle around and try to catch bait.
  2. The plan today was to fish the beach early and try to get on some big snook on fly. Ended up not seeing any snook but the trout were blasting the small baitfish. Phil hooked me up with a small white baitfish fly and after about 10 min of casting on the outside of the bait schools I land this fat 22"A little after that I get a 23'' on the spinning rod using a MirroDine mini. Later on in the day we found the redfish after the tide went out a bit. They were tailing literally 10ft in front of us at times.. this was in the middle of the day during the weekend, I couldn't believe it! I usually only see tailiers early or late evening before sundown. They were all keyed in on small shrimp and crabs in the grass so they wanted nothing to do with soft plastics and the wind made it hard to get a fly in front of them. Phil got a couple follows using a small shrimp fly but they would spook off before hitting it. They would only follow the fly with a faster retrieve coming out of the grass, anything dragged through the grass got ignored.
  3. I'm going for big snook later today around sunset
  4. There are snook on the beach now. Somebody got a 40'' on live bait yesterday

    Next time get his badge number and take out your phone and record him. Have him show you the law where it is illegal to cover your face. If not, he is harassing you and breaking the law. From what I read here it is not illegal....FLORIDA Chapter 876 Criminal Anarchy, Treason and other Crimes Against Public Order876.13 Wearing mask, hood, or other device on public property.--No person or persons shall in this state, while wearing any mask, hood, or device whereby any portion of the face is so hidden, concealed, or covered as to conceal the identity of the wearer, enter upon, or be, or appear upon or within the public property of any municipality or county of the state.876.155 Applicability; ss. 876.12-876.15.--The provisions of ss. 876.12-876.15 apply only if the person was wearing the mask, hood, or other device:(1) With the intent to deprive any person or class of persons of the equal protection of the laws or of equal privileges and immunities under the laws or for the purpose of preventing the constituted authorities of this state or any subdivision thereof from, or hindering them in, giving or securing to all persons within this state the equal protection of the laws;(2) With the intent, by force or threat of force, to injure, intimidate, or interfere with any person because of the person's exercise of any right secured by federal, state, or local law or to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from exercising any right secured by federal, state, or local law;(3) With the intent to intimidate, threaten, abuse, or harass any other person; or(4) While she or he was engaged in conduct that could reasonably lead to the institution of a civil or criminal proceeding against her or him, with the intent of avoiding identification in such a proceeding.
  6. I usually have luck jumping out and wading for the fish that are a little deeper. I think in the deeper water they can see farther than they can in the real skinny water.
  7. Stevensons. It's probably the most polluted creek I have seen in the bay area
  8. That sounds like the best way to do it right there. There are lots of us in all parts of the bay and by us organizing in our own local areas we can clean up the entire bay and make a big difference.
  9. If we can get some yaks together and clean up the spoil islands, that will really make a difference. There is a ton of monofiliment and braided line all over the mangroves and I always see dead birds hanging from it. The line is what causes the most damage, especially near Caladesi where all the birds live. There is also a nearby creek that is FILLED with garbage and line that could really use a clean up tooI'll volunteer to take a lot of pictures and write an article to put on the site if that is cool with the publishers.
  10. Wind sucks! Beefhill and I paddled 3 miles straight into the wind and chop today only to get to a spot with no fish. Sweet! At least on the drift back we came across a few. I spot a giant red that the wind blows me right over. We stand up in the yaks and spot some around us and I see one laid up in a pothole. I make a cast and watch the fish dart off, thought for sure I spooked it but my drag started screaming! Nice 26"We catch a couple more lower slots and spook some more good ones because the wind just made it impossible to make a good cast. Redfish are not hard to find! Look in no more than 2ft of water. There were boats all around us in slightly deeper water catching nothing. Weedless rigged paddletails and shrimp will get hit if you can get it in front of the fish without spooking them.
  11. Welcome to the forum dude!
  12. Some desert tortoise soup sounds pretty good right now
  13. Nice! They have really made a comeback since the freeze.
  14. Nice! Things are definitely heating up!
  15. I've seen schools of big reds off the beach near Pier 60 before. Just a red blob and whenever they came across a school of bait fish it was pure mayhem. They were moving down the beach pretty quick. I guess it's just luck to come across a school of them like that in open water.
  16. This is a good idea for a how to video since it's hard to explain typing. I will make one next time out (if I don't forget)
