It was great seeing Greg (Lt.Firedog) again and meeting you Darrell. You guys didn't miss anything later in the day except getting wet. Fished until around 6 with only a flounder. Never got a topwater strike all day.
Had my fingers crossed as the full moon was setting upon arrival at C.I.P.
On the oyster bars early. Saw some slot snook tailing but could only get the snooklets to eat. Not much bait around though there were some mullet jumping.

Low tide was around 9:30 a.m so when the oyster bars weren't really happening we rode the end of the outgoing on out to the gulf on the outside. Stopped and stretched/ate for half an hour.
I didn't take any pics on the way out so the video below is from a previous trip I made to that area.
Took a break on sand oyster bar for about half and hour and then fished
shoreline on outside as tide started in and found some nice trout to 20 inches. Should have stayed outside as the water was much clearer but didn't want winds to pick up and have to fight it back the three miles back to oyster bars to the south of launch. Saw a few reds and missed a couple. We were all needing reds to slam and I thought back where we started was our best shot. My bad.

Winds and rain coming. Time to fish closer to launch. Fished until the lightning started and then headed in with only a flounder in the late afternoon.
Can't wait until next time!
