Snook,Redfish,Black Drum,Croakers,etc (09-07-19)

I launched around 10:00 AM on Saturday. Awesome weather and conditions, but only a few vehicles in the parking lot which was surprising. As I dragged my kayak into the water, numerous small shrimp were jumping all around. Lots of activity and a busy day of catching a mixed bag of Snook, Redfish, Black Drum, Croakers, Mangrove Snapper, etc. The first fish I caught was a small, but scrappy Snook that hit a Spook Jr. Snook are becoming very common in our area. I catch them frequently. Throughout the day I used a variety of lures and also some fresh dead shrimp. With the shrimp I caught a dozen Black Drum, several decent Croakers, and small Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, etc.

I thought these were fishing reports what’s the point of posting if you’re not willing to share with your fishing

The point is you are supposed to get out there an find them like Mudfish has by fishing hard for many years. If we all posted where we caught everything, or places would be swamped with people. You won't find many seasoned anglers giving up their sweet spots.

There are also sections on this forum that lists areas to launch and fish. The rest is up to the anglers

Hello "Me B" and I completely agree with the posts above about your criticism or at least bullshit info about catching fish from a kayak!!
Mudfish has "Paid his dues" to post his reports on here along with his methods of catching all those species..he is one of the VERY BEST fishermen in here.....if not the best...and you should look at his posts on FISHING REPORTS and if you learn 10% of his skills and tips from him, you just might become a fairly good kayak fisherman!!!
Good Luck and I look forward to some future reports to catching like Jim does!!!!

Thanks John, keastman, and dogyak!

Me B,
If you are wondering “where” I caught the fish, in 99% of my posts I am fishing at any one of the many local spots listed in the “Fishing Spots” section of this website. As keastman stated, see: Kayak Fishing>Fishing Spots at the top of the page. I rotate between the different spots depending upon tides, weather conditions, etc. and also simply because I like to fish different spots from week to week, and I enjoy catching different species of fish. I frequently run into fellow JKF forum members at the launch areas and while out on the water. I’m taking a break to do some “Mullet Run Surf Fishing”, but will be back in the yak in a couple of weeks.

Good Luck!
