Caught some flatties

Recommended Posts

My son took me inshore creek fishing this morning.Part of the frame of the trailer broke off on the way but at least it wasnt an essential part to making it there.Then we launch and had motor trouble.At first we couldnt figure out what was wrong because it ran fine when we checked it.So we said a prayer and it immediately started.

So they wernt biting good.I attribute it to the 98 degree day we had yesterday.Just too hot for the creeks.But we fished one stretch of creek and got 4 flounder on mud minnows.Got 10 crabs or so also.

A storm came up so we headed in.We had to slow down for some kayakers and go around them, which ran us up on a shallow mud spot and got us stuck.We got off okay, but mud had clogged the holes on the lower unit and the motor was running rough again so we paddled the last 1/4 mile or so against the wind.Had trouble getting the boat loaded too but I wont elaborate.

We've had worse trips.Got to discuss life issues and enjoy our father-son relationship.It seems like most of the time our trips have some kind of problem that we have to solve together and that helps us bond more through the years

Anyway we plan to eat them tomorrow.LOVE fried flounder!

Nice Mike!

One of my sons and his buddies slayed
croaker yesterday and today. Some very
good saltwater fishing.

Freshwater? Not so much. My youngest 
did score 3 bluegill and a tiny bass today.
Registered my first skunk of the year today :(

Thanks, Darren.I took my wife out fishing last night and tried so hard to put her on some fish.She hooked several but they all got off.I only caught 1 bass and 5 bream.We started using live worms and they werent even biting them .It was 98 here yesterday and they just werent biting.

By the way, we caught a few spots today too.On the bone or fileted, theyre all good.

Too bad about the skunk, but at least your son caught something!

Saltwater fish are tasty and the flesh is firm. My favorites for inshore are flounder, rockfish/striper, and spot (when they are the big yellow belly spot). I will miss them when we move back to the mountains
