The fall bite is here.
Well it was one of those weekends that you just dream of. The weather was perfect and the fish cooperated nicely. From flood tide marsh flats covered with tailers to the juvenile fish showing up good in the creeks.
The flood tide was nice and slow to enter the flat. Saw five fish total, casted at three of them. I had two takers, but one came unglued as he swam straight at me and spit the hook. Always a rush though! They were all fat healthy fish. The tides are great for the rest of the week. Get out there and get on em! Thanks to Peepod for the use of his secret spot.
Plenty of bait in the creeks. I caught over 100 bait shrimp in about ten minutes, enough to last me the entire weekend. And I would need it too. The juvie reds and sheepshead were stacked up and hungry in the creeks. I even managed to get a flounder in between the live shrimp being battered. Easily caught a dozen reds between 12" and 22" and a dozen sheepshead on small shrimp. It was a fun filled weekend. Add in there a Gamecock win and an OSU loss and I felt pretty good about it.
