Got out and fished the bay for a couple of hours this morning. It was the top of the tide and it would be outgoing all morning. The water was churned up and very muddy from the major rain we had last night. I worked some oyster bars with topwaters and picked up a few snook but nothing of great size. The jacks were around and a couple gave me a nice workout with them averaging 5 or 6 lbs. I couldn't locate any reds today and there weren't a lot of bait fish around. By mid-morning I moved on and worked my way back fishing along some mangrove shorelines (using 1/8 oz jig head with DOA Cal shad tails) ending up with a couple more snook, one nice one around 26". I came in around 11.
