Yesterday, went fishing as I was invited to tag along. Launched around 11:30 AM, sunny but cool, tide was going out and water levels were way down. The whole time I paddled I was scraping the bottom. But, we found Redfish. This was a day where standing was a distinct advantage. The fish i saw were just cruising around , most of them i spooked before I laid eyes on them. The one's I did not spook were not interested in anything I had (various Gulp plastics). My fishing partner managed three Redfish to 26" using a Saltwater Assassin 5" paddle tail rigged with a weedless swim hook. Highlight for me was what I thought was a small dolphin in couple inches of water. Turned out to be a large Black Drum cruising the 5" water getting a suntan. I paddled up to it within paddle length as it rested. Never did move, just chilling hoping a kayak would not bother it.
