While it might be difficult to navigate your vessel during low tide days it certainly makes it easier to find the fish. We started this morning on a negative - 1.3 tide and could barely get the boat off the trailer. But that was the last trouble we had. The only hard thing this morning was trying to decide which tailing redfish to cast to. When we got close enough we'd cast past the and slowly ease the lure back. Once we got it close enough we'd let it sit and it wouldn't take take long. The fish would grab it and swirl and it was fish-on.

The trout where mostly deep but would would occasionally move shallow to avoid the dolphins. Worked the lures close to the and had a decent bite. The key was slow on the bottom.
