  2. Details: Red (redfish) Drum

    Went on a charter trip and caught this nice bull red. Caught 49 trout and 3 reds this morning. Caught most of the trout on Matrix Shads and the reds on live shrimp.

  3. Details: Black Drum

    Caught this 32" black drum today under a bridge. Casted in between the pilings and let the cut crab drift with the current. It was a pretty fun fight because ...more I was fishing with 20lb braid which made it tough to get him away from the pilings. Got hit 3 times and hooked into 2. Had to end the day short bc of shortage of bait. Hoping I'm able to hook into another this trip. @Giff_Giffin

      Where were you ?
  4. Details: Spotted (Speckled) Trout

    Caught this 18" trout just after @mrwigeon caught a 24" red. The fishing just started to get good in the bay and the baitfish have moved in. There's ...more a lot of freshwater in the bay due to a ton of rain which makes it hard to catch saltwater fish. @Giff_Giffin

  5. Details: Gafftopsail Catfish

    Caught a lot 5"-6" menhaden in the cast net and used them live on a 1/2oz Carolina rig. Got into a school of gafftop and ended up catching 4 including ...more 3 stingrays(not the best mix). Biggest one was 20". Temp in the 80s with scattered thunderstorms. @Giff_Giffin

  6. Details: Gulf Flounder

    18.5in. First flounder of the trip for me. Fishing has been rough because large amounts of freshwater came into the bay due to the tropical storm couple weeks ago. ...more All that have been bitting are gars and catfish. I was finally able to hook up into a flounder today. Think the water has just started to settle. Today was in the 80s with scattered storms throughout the day. @Giff_Giffin @mrwigeon

    Another PB! Finally caught a DD! 10lbs 10oz. Took me awhile to figure out the fish but after 10 hours I got em. Switched to a Brushhog late in the day and caught ...more 10 in 30 minutes. Caught most of the bass on the edges of grass and brush piles. I decided to go into the creek at 2:00 and ended up catching a 7.2lb and broke off on a GIANT next cast. At 5:00 i went back to the

      I went back and caught this tank at the same spot as the others. Was in the high 70s most of the day but got in the 80s around noon. Overcast with little wind in ...more afternoon. Huge storm came in in am.

    PB!! 8lb 13oz. 3rd time this year. For my birthday I wanted to go back to my hunting lease to try and catch a DD. Started out with a 10in worm and caught a couple ...more around 3lbs. I then switched to a Shakey Head and used that almost the rest of the day. Caught about 10-12 on the Shakey Head all above 2lbs. Then caught an 8lb 13oz. Switched to a whopper Plopper and caught a 8lb 5oz towards the end.

  9. Details: Largemouth Bass

    After breaking my PB on topwater the 1st day the 2nd and 3rd day topwater bite slowed down. Was only able to catch 2 bass on topwater rest of trip. I stuck to the ...more weightless fluke and swimbait on the 2nd day and caught two 7+lb bass. On the 3rd day I couldn't catch anything. Was throwing all the lures that had been working and the only lure that seemed to work was weightless lizard. I decided to

    PB! 8lbs 5ozs. Today was one of the best fishing days I've ever had. Had a 35lb 5 fish bag all on a fluke or Spook. Caught about 30 today most were above 3lbs. ...more Around noon I fished with a fluke along edges of grass. Then later in the afternoon I caught a ton on a Spook including my new personal best. @Giff_Giffin

    1. Congratulations on the new PB!
