fri negative tide fishing
« on: December 16, 2016, 03:58:59 PM »
Had the day off and figured why not go fishing.  Loaded up the sled and headed to second cove.  There is a deep trough that runs between two flats and theoretically that is where the fish would be.  Well…the trout were there but the reds were not.  I did have a shot at a tailor and sucked- so he swam off.  Moved to a different spot where the wind was not as bad and waded to a tailing sheepshead, Never seen that before.  After a couple of minutes and two cast later, i got him to eat.  Not a great fight, but an epic eat.  Landed him and he went around 5 or 6 lbs.  One of the bigger sherpas I've seen around.  I start walking back to the boat thinking how I am going to cook him and poof he jumped out of my hands and he was gone. 

Merry Christmas,
"You see the fish, make the cast. Tic, tic, hit him, no not a trout set!!!!!! What are you doing?"
