Fishing Report - April 27, 2014

My friend Ed and I went to Rudee Inlet this morning we launched around 8am. There were a lot of people at Rudee today for two reasons; the weather was very nice and there reports that the bite was on. While I didn't have a single bite today, I did see a number of fish being pulled a various sizes. Ed reeled in a 25" red fish, 22" blue fish and a schooler striper. Regardless I still had a great time today. We paddled all the way down to just outside jetties.

Fishing Report - April 6-9, 2014

I was able to get out on the water for the 1st time this year on Sunday, April 6th.  My friend Ed & I went to Ruddee Inlet and launched at 9:30am.  It was cold Sunday at 48° compared to the 75° on Saturday.  Until Sunday there was lots of news about good bit from Red's, Blue's, & still some Spec's.  However sudden drop in temp turned the bite off.  Not to mention it was blowing 15 knot winds.  You can see in the pic below how choppy the water was.

Ed & I went back out to Ruddee tonight.  The winds died down, the temp was up to 67°, and Ruddee was flat as glass.

 We had pretty good luck for only having fished for  about 3 hours.  I caught a 15" Red Drum.

Ed caught a 24" Red Drum!

 Fish were jumping everywhere but wouldn't bite on much.  Good luck to everyone this year on their catches.
