Fishing Report 8/13/2014
So after watching the crew casting poppers into the surf (and one kayak angler flyfishing), I broke out my equipment to try and get a fish to play tug-o-war. No joy on the spinning gear with a popping cork/shrimp lure or a mullet popper. No joy with the Cabela's CGR 7'6" 7/8 lined with Orvis Redfish 8wt (although a needlefish keeps biting the heck out of my electric chicken colored shallow clouser minnow - just can't get it to bite near the hook). I did get the paddleboard wet to do some recon on the bathymetry and to see if there were any holes where the fish could be lying. The water was brown and I couldn't see 6" into it. But it does drop off pretty quickly (so better to fish off the board rather than wade - oh - did I mention the stingray I saw). I think tomorrow we are going to Legoland, so the next fishing report will be on Friday.
