I hear the top of East Bay is good for wading for specks, and Jan-Feb are good for targeting the big sows.
If I'm wading the Anauhac refuge shoreline, is it best on a rising or falling tide?
What about wind direction. fishing a leeward shoreline seems easiest to find decent water, but wouldn't the bait be stacked up on the windward shoreline?
I have not been on in while.
Good trout hold up there, fish it with Tops, and Corkys. And yes, WATCH for gators!!!! We were catching them on Pink, and Glo corkys that time of the year. Water movement in East is the best, in or out. A little to late for advice...but for next year...
Spring time, with the SSE,S winds pumping off the gulf, hit the south shoreline of any bay system and you should do pretty well. Find some bait working, and fish it solid. We hammered them last weekend. We fished pre-front Saturday at 3am before the winds kicked up out of the NNE. Look for that water temp to hover around 72 degrees, is the magic number. Look for green water coming on the gulf side, and if the winds cooperate, fish that bad boy, there are some big fish hiding in the guts. FYI...if you are going to Bolivar, get food before you go, because there is only 2 stores opened Dannay's Donuts, and the Shell Station, not to mention Stingaree Rest. PM me if you want to hook up.
