Well, it's official.



Went daytripping again today and stopped to report red tide and give the usual fishing report to the folks at the checkgate and received this lil memo.

But first....on with the report.

Finally-cool temps!


But this'll put a frown on your face!


Cut bait OUT!!


It was a beautiful morning as I fished my way south.


There wasn't much bait, but the whiting were huge!


And even some bluefish made appearances.


In case you weren't aware, these suckers will take a finger off!!!


And parts of the beach were so full of baygrass.


And the recent rains really freshened things up!




Love it!


And like the case has been for the last SEVERAL weeks, I continue to find and pick up long line gear.


And some more reds!




And even some rays!


And some larger blues.




And then....this guy!






Just a munching away.






He let me get pretty doggone close!




Haha!


See him?


And back at the truck, this ghost crab had made a home under my tire! Took me 5 minutes to get him out so I could leave!


And catch more reds!






Finally, not being able to get out to the mullet as they went so deep, I just started foul hooking them one at a time! Lol!


And again!


And lunch...shrimp of course!!


On the way off, I started picking up the red tide aerosols at the 17 and it got worse towards the blacktop. It's moving south.



I usually give a fishing report to the folks at the check gate for their phone line recording, and when I did they passed me that flyer up top. Said they had just got notice an hour earlier from the folks at HQ. I don't know what's to come now, but all we can do is pray. I personally don't give a flying @#^ about "nature running it's course," I just can't stand the sight of the hundreds of thousands of dead creatures on mile after mile of shorefront. And they won't be the only ones dying. The coons and the coyotes and the rest have taken years to come back from 2009 and then 2011....

Keep your fingers crossed folks.

Great report and beautiful Pics. Glad you scored some Reds. Really hope that red tide doesn't hurt a whole lot of game fish. Bad deal.

Great pics as usual. Ya know, the red tide was in the cards with all the cold water this summer. <Sigh> Evil or Very Mad

Hey Gus...strangely enough, everything was on cut bait this day. One red nailed a whiting filet, another a skipjack chunk, one hit a paddletail plastic, one hit some cut hardhead. Live baits sat untouched. The only exception was way down south. The jacks are still running around out deep solitary and the fellow north of me got into one on live mullet. By that point it was time to go as the tide was in the railroad vine.

HB-you're right. Those smarter than I at the park have been eyeballing the possibility of a red tide for a while now with the cold water upwelling and the heavy rainfall totals this year.
