09 Oct lowtide pot holes in Tampa Bay with Clyde, Drew and Shane!
Got Clyde, his son Drew and nephew Shane out in the kayaks yesterday to do some low tide fishing in Tampa Bay.
The day started early when Clyde and Drew doubled up on two perfect slot sized redfish out of a school of roughly 40-50 other tailing reds… first two casts of the day too, can’t beat that! We continued to trout fish some deeper flats while waiting for the tide to fall.
Once the tide had bottomed out we proceeded to fish the potholes and troughs I believed the fish would be trapped in during the low tide. It didn’t take long to kick things off with some low slot red fish and trout mixed in. We worked the hole for a couple hours bringing in several dozen reds and trout before the incoming tide had finally gotten high enough for the fish to escape the confines of the hole and move out onto the flat.
Tackle used today: TFO spinning rods 7 & 71/2 ft w/ 3000 Shimano spinning reels, 10 lb braided line, 20 lb leader and goldenbream DOA paddle tails on 1/4 oz jig heads.
Enjoy the pics!
