Good Big Tide bite

Report Date: February 22, 2019

Fished today with Chris, Keith, Eli, and Jackson Istapa today. Had a very big tide and dirty water to work with. Started in a deep creek and caught one 18 inch trout, and one nice upper slot Redfish. The water got really dirty at the top of high, so we tried a deep reef with no luck. Ran to a cove just as the water started to fall, and got right on the fish. Had live shrimp under a cork and they put a pretty good whipping on the fish. Picked up 16 more, from 18 to 25 inches. Ended with 17 Reds, and the one trout. Really good day for such big tides.
