Yates Creek - 5-13-2018

Post by SRAces » Mon May 14, 2018 8:12 am

Met Richard Manning from Tallahassee to fish Yates Creek Sunday morning. Richard had never fished there. The bite was a little more challenging than Hickory Mounds the previous day. One blow up on topwater. After that topwater was dead. Suspended baits got no attention. Have to assume it was due to the front moving in this week. I managed to catch everything on soft plastics.

Felt bad for Richard as we beat the water for 8 hours and he only managed 1 trout. I had a better day than Saturday at Hickory Mounds as far as numbers, but no size and no reds. Managed 9 trout with the biggest being almost 19 inches. Added 1 bluefish, 1 black sea bass and 1 catfish to the total. The pinfish bite never slowed. The one picture below shows how determined the pinfish were...lol!

nice report! When you catch blues, is it by accident, or are you targeting them? Just curious because I never seem to run across them and i feel like we fish a lot of the same baits.

Tim and I have spotted them chasing bait fish a few times and managed to hook a few that way, but most of the time it's just a sporadic catch while fishing for everything else. We don't go fishing looking for bluefish. Mostly reds, trout and flounder. :D

Thanks for another well done post Steve. You gotta' love the determination of those pin fish, and be thankful they aren't 6 feet long! I've thought in the past about creating a post with nothing but pictures of fish that are smaller than the lure they get caught on.

I caught more than that small one. Sometimes what you think is a pinfish turns out to be a flounder!
