Piney-Z Pre Spring Spawn Bass

Took a ride over to Piney-Z, lugged the Gheenoe by hand down to the launch. Headed out as the sun was coming up. Worked topwater baits, a few casts in boated a nice 4.5lb bass. Caught a few more on top water until the sun came up when we switched to senko style paddle tail worms rigged weedless. Ended up catching around 15 bass averaging around 3lbs each. Great day on the water.

April Fools in the Bayou

Took a trip out to take advantage of the incoming tide all day, was expecting to have 10-15mph winds and a chance of thunder storms but the weather man was apparently pulling an April fool’s joke as it was less than 5mph winds all day. It was very foggy and misting in the morning when we launched but eventually turned into sunny blue bird skies. Started throwing top water and had a few blow ups and eventually hooked up to a little red. Continued fishing and caught some nice trout. We moved over to an oyster bar that was just covered by the tide, immediately saw tailing fish, Cast, hooked up to a nice 31” spotless Redfish. Snapped some pictures and it was safely released. Moved deeper into the bayou and caught a fair share of reds and trout. We then cruised home to the wonderful scenery of the Saint Marks Wildlife refuge and the beautiful spring weather. Until next time, tight lines
