But we had fun for sure

Looks like SnookMaster and I have finally found our way into some consistent action. I have wussed out until now about talking the Cobia up into skinny water but with these reports flowing out of Florida Sportsman had to do it

Boats OK, no oyster bed rubdowns. High and dry on a lift now

Anyway, water temp in the ICW still a cold 58-59 down here, still looking for that stray striper

Up in skinny water, water temp 61-63. It apperars that 60 is the magic number for the Reds. This draws them back into backwater in the spring. Words from the pros is that they move offshore when the water drops below 60 in the back

We got into some real good action with live shrimp right on the edge of an oyster bar. A lot of weaks but nothing bigger then 16 inches. Small Reds as well. I will post some pics in a few.

We will be in nothing but sweetwater this weekend

Hey Doc, I found a good color combination that worked on trout,reds, and Pompano when I was down in Naples Jan-Feb
3/8's oz Brown jigs with a little gold tinzel tipped with a very small piece of shrimp
I found trout up to 24" using this method in the colder water
