Mashes sands. FYI

Postby fish10 » June 6th, 2020, 2:50 pm

Been to mashes sands twice in last two weeks. Wade fishing the flats and little channel up north of the end of the road. Fly fishing with 8 weight and tried everything in the box with no luck. Saw multiple flounders drifting away as I fished the flats and saw a 36 in black drum slowly coming out of the marsh without a care in the world. About two feet rom me. Conditions were good and no fish so may try over at bald point the next time. Hope to see some red fish but a flounder will be ok too.

Haven't fished Bald Point for awhile, but enjoy it. What success I've had has been on an outgoing. Good luck.

Sometimes they just don't wanna eat, nobody knows why :-? My Dad used to say, if you can see fish, you probably won't catch them. Sounds like he was right that day.

fish10, if you don't have any Dupre's gold spoon flies, they have them at Fisherman's Choice in Eastpoint and the beauty of that is they are $1.50 less than they are when you buy them online. I like the gold as well as the dark red. Decent option when you're blind fishing and Reds will eat them more than they'll eat Clousers IMO. Plus they're easy to cast and I've also caught Flounder, Spanish Macks and Sheepshead on them.

I havent fished for a while because of the pandemic. Once all this is over ill take my sons out for a fishing trip. Im planning on buying them their own fishing rods so they can get into the hobby. If anyone is looking to get fly rods for kids, you should visit this page.

Guy took me fishing late at night in back of Captiva Island. He literally snuck up on the dock we were going to fish.
Took one look...stood up and said we aren't gonna catch anything tonight.
I walked out on that dock, which was lit up, and saw the bay bottom carpeted with snook.
Bounced pinfish off their noses, they couldn't have cared less.
