First Time at ClapBoard Creek!!!

Launched at the restaurant by Timucuan.
Weather was partly cloudy. Started out mostly clear with clouds rolling in moderately towards the later part of the day.
Wind was mild and out of the North.
Water temps were moderate. Clarity was darkly tea stained but mostly clear and not muddy.
Tide was just after low but did not look very low.
Fished the rising tide. Tide rose at moderate to slow speed.
Saw lots of bait but none being crashed on the east side of the creek near the grass lines
Went to the Timucuan side and explored the coves, cuts and creeks
Just off the point of a very small cove I hooked on a pearl swim shad I Battled a large red fish - probably over 22 inches - maybe 25" but it shook the hook just before I could net him
Size based on my experience fighting other large reds on this particular tackle
Went down a side creek and heard numerous crashes of bait being busted.
Creek opened up and I spooked something big from the grasses on the left.
Around another corner I stopped and cast toward the open area just in front of more flooded grass.
Connected with another nice sized redfish.
Landed the 19.5 inch after it almost took off into the grass.
Invited him home to be on the half shell later.
