I guess I made the naughty list this year. All I’ve read on the forums is how awesome the low tide fishing has been. The seatrout are on fire and the reds are stacked up like cord wood. So I finally get my butt on the water and I get freakin’ skunked again. I did see one tail but by the time I stood up he was gone. I spooked another in the same area but that was it. Aside from baitfish it was quiet. Of course, the freakin’ pelicans were laughing at me while they made it look easy. Stupid birds.
I have to admit I was pretty pissed at the end of the day. I had such high hopes and I just knew I’d end the year on a good note. I haven’t been able to get out much at all lately and this was probably my last hurrah. What a letdown. I tried getting into the water with clousers and worked the topwater with a gurgler. I worked the oysters. I worked the points. I worked the docks. Next time I’m trying dynamite.
At least the day wasn’t a total loss. I got to play with the Hatch 7 Plus and snapped this shot. I really like how it turned out. I wish the Hatch logo matched the rest of the lines in the image but it still works.
