Fishing Report - Flats Action Continues
Fishing has turned "time of day sensitive" among the cooling water temperatures. Capt. David Garcia said "no need to hit the water before 10am here lately"; and those sentiments have been echoed by the reel-time reports coming from Capt. Chris Cady and Capt. Justice Cunningham. Lots of fish sighted early frustrating guides with little feeding activity. Shift gears toward mid-day and the activity shifts gears with rods bending up breaking the ice cold feed earlier in the day. This has benefitted Cast & Blast guests hitting the fish mid-day after morning duck hunts.
Post cold front weather has dented the run of full limits with mild winds and slick off conditions. We've still been taking heavy straps of Gadwal, Pintail, Wigeon, and a few Teal. There's no shortage of birds, however, and the migration here on the mid-coast builds with each cold front. Redheads that were a no show last year on the tremendous flood conditions across the Southern United States are hitting the back lakes and open bays and "they're back"!
