Got out early at sunrise and water was like glass. Was able to get out to 40-50' and trolled red flasher with green and blue fly on leaded line with planer boards between Wind Point and Reef Warning Horn. Caught 2 steel heads. Had 3 lines out and only leaded line seemed to do the trick. Thanks to all the comments here and for the local tips.

Got up early this morning and was out around sunrise. Fished for about an hour and realized it was too windy and a little too cold for me, not to mention I had to get home before the wife left for work. Went out again tonight around 730 pm, fished until dark on the break wall, south side by mouth of river. No luck again. I fish primarily from shore, and haven't had the same luck others are having out in the boats. Maybe this cold front will head out soon.

Fished last night 5/15 and night before 5/14 for a couple hours just before sunset. No luck. See a lot of movement at the mouth of the river. Had time both nights to get out and cast some lures, so whether this was a good time or not didn't matter. Just enjoyed the good Lords creation.
I spoke with Turk's daughter in law at the sale a few weeks back. The owner of the Mobile station that is a few blocks east of the bait shop will be selling live minnows. He is going to, or may have already bought the equipment. I believe, as of then, that all they were waiting on was an inspection from the health department to make sure everything would be up to code. Not sure if they are up and running yet tho. Tight Lines
