    Default Going Around the Bend- 01/07/18 Report

    Epic doesn't even begin to describe it. Had the pleasure to meet Joe Kent today after talking for the last couple of weeks. From Nebraska, he's doing a one month rotation at UTMB.

    We headed out with another one of my buddies early. After giving Joe the short run down on the Hobie Sport, we headed of to fish some deeper oyster reefs. The initial action was sporadic to say the least. We would find a few here and there and for the most part, fish were in the dinky side. I picked up 6 trout early while the rest of the group picked off a few.

    The tide slacked so we went to a different area that none of us had fished before. It consisted mainly of soft mud and steep drop offs from 2ft to 12 plus. There were trout and redfish everywhere along these drops. Our best tactic was to position the kayak parallel to the shoreline and work the drop offs. I mainly used a bass assassin in space guppy on a bass assassin 1/4th jighead. Joe used a variety of lures including white curly tails on under spins. I was worried that there was going to be a large learning curve on artificial, but with his experience with Walleye and other types of fishing not common around here, he picked up the drop off tactic real quick.

    Joe apparently is a redfish magnet. While trying to complete his 10 trout limit, Joe kept catching red after red after red. Not even dink trout wanted to mess with his lure. After much persistence and honing in on better zones that had trout, we each ended up with a limit of reds and trout for a total of a 3 man limit of trout and redfish. When you have a day of fishing when you are sore from catching, that's a great and epic day.
