The reds are cruising in and out of the pass and making stops at the spoil islands along the way...... thing is there are too many sharks! Yesterday I setup on the outside of a island just inside the pass next to a deep cut along the outside of a flat as the tide was coming in. I throw a chunk of ladyfish into the zone and put it in the rod holder, about 50 seconds later the reel is singing. Thought for sure I had a bull red, turns out after a 20 min battle from the yak it's a bonnethead. Toss out another chunk and almost as soon as the bait hits the water I have another shark on. I stand up and look around while I'm fighting it and there's about 20 3-4ft blacktips and bonnetheads all over the flat. Would've been fun if I was on the beach or a dock but sharks are way to much to handle sitting in a yak with 10 pound line lol. I tie on the reliable CAL Shad and almost immediately start hooking up with reds. First two fish some undone somehow but the third one stuck, and it was a true bull red............Jetskiers came by and scared everything off the flat but I actually plan that into my trips when I fish the ICW lol. I paddled over the the SR60 bridge and anchor up under that "no fishing pier" that was built under the bridge and drop down some cut bait. Caught about a dozen short snapper but that was it, if I had my bait bucket and some live greenies it probably would've been different.Get out there!
