I went out in some backcountry in my kayak yesterday. Didn't really expect a whole lot, I went to a spot where I normally see tons of overslot snook and didn't even see a mullet. So I went to some different spots for last part of outgoing tide. I found redfish and some good snook. I caught everything on my 8wt fly rod. Sightcasted the red cruising some mangroves with a big black and purple polar fiber minnow, it missed it twice and crushed it. I thought it was a snook until I finally got it close to kayak. Then I saw a decent snook cruising and sightcasted it. Caught several upper 20s snook blindcasting too. Then I saw some small ladyfish going crazy so I casted to it and got slammed by a lower 30s snook. Then I headed towards the launch and saw some surface action. I caught jacks until my arms were tired and called it a day. On a kayak, with nothing but a flyrod, it was a pretty epic day. Most of the fish I caught were in mudflats in a 1-3' of water. A few snook were were caught in a deep mudhole adjacent to a shallow flat.
