Awesome surprise last Friday on the PAC WMA. Based on the conditions we faced, my fishing partner and I expected to have a limit of redfish in no time as we left the boat ramp. We were rewarded with bass coming over the side of the boat one after another for about 30 minutes or so. The number of fish we boated was crazy for this area. Kept a few to fry, and returned almost all of them. We ended up with a mixed bag of Specks, Reds, and Bass. Just a reminder to the sportsman who use this area during this time of year, there are plenty of hunters in smaller surface drive boats on this WMA. I was reminded of this Friday as I turned a blind corner, only to be presented with a small boat tied up on the down stream side of the corner. Fortunately, I was going slow enough to react and avoid a collision. All in all it was a perfect day on the water. I have the fish and a sunburn to prove it. Don't forget to fill out a self clearing permit if you plan to use these facilities. An information station is setup at each of the ramps. Good Luck, Mudflat
Launched out of the Point-Au-Chene marina this morning to find an incoming tide with the water already flooding the marsh. We located the some fish within minutes of the marina. We could not convince them to take and then hold onto any of the artificial baits we were throwing. We did have lots of strikes, but it seems the fish were not aggressively feeding. Also noticed several kayak fisherman leaving the dock with us. Couldn't help but wonder how they were doing in these near perfect conditions. Winds were light all morning long, and the rain storms in the area seal the trip for us about 11:30. Even though the ice chest had 1 keeper in it, we still had an awesome time on the water.
Just one more cast dad, then we can go.
