Negative Tides - Like Fishing in a Barrel
Updated: Jan 26, 2019
Hit the inside of Honeymoon Island yesterday morning to duck the 15 mph SE winds and take advantage of the negative low tide. Found a couple of big Trout schools holding in the remaining pools left on the mud flat at low tide. The hot lure proved to be a 1/4 oz jig head rigged with a MirrOlure Lil' John in this winter's hot color - Electric Chicken. My Partner for the day, Gene Williams, also picked up a nice Snook and surpisingly, a couple of Sheepshead. This was not a trip for the meek as we had to walk half a mile to get to our entry point, waded a mile through mud and had a mile and a half back through a wooded trail to my truck. Gene and I agreed that the results made it all worthwhile.
