The weather is absolutely perfect this morning and I am furiously working on two jobs that will wait no longer hoping to get on the water by noon. Something always goes wrong when replacing a garbage disposal and replacing wax seals on commodes so fishing may or may not happen. We have had two decent days with the flounder in spite of the wind and dirty water.
If you haven't been on the lake in a while, you would not consider the water to be even moderately clear, but it hasn't bothered the flounder and a few redfish. To some degree we have minimized our chances of even catching trout as we have just been pounding the shoreline and mouths of the bayous. We have also thrown only small curl tail jigs and GULP on a 1/8th ounce head. We found a few trout in the ship channel last week, but that water was really dirty yesterday.
I don't know what happened to the bite in Black's.......possibly too much fresh water with more on the way. if this weather will hold out through the weekend, we could see some very good catches in the Orange County CCA High School team event. If you haven't already done so, you can still put a team together and sign up at the Captain's meeting at the Orange Boat Club Friday night.
Think I'll tackle the garbage disposal first!
