My thinking was the fast incoming tide would spark a bite.
Before the tide came in, the objective was to use finesse presentations in shallow areas to see if any fish would strike.
I was able to pick off a few trout but the blue skies and heavy water flow really made it difficult on the day.
Hours later, after throwing too many different lures, I tied on a Gulp! lure and hooked into something I’ll remember for a long time!
A school of beautiful redfish were hanging around a point.
I plucked one off and it tried to dart right back to spook out the entire school.
So I backed out as quickly as I could to give myself another shot at the other fish.
Once I released that fish, I pushed deeper and deeper into the tall grass until I was able to see the rest of the school.
Amongst the bugs and thick muddy grass, I was able to find another decent fish!
Pushing back through the tall grass when there’s more water than normal is an excellent way to get tight lines.
Odds are the fish will push back into the tall grass in search of baitfish, shrimp, and other crustaceans.
It was a grind but I was able to have a successful trip!

Thanks for a great video on fishing the flood tide. Hope you have a great 2023.
Wow you used the wakebait and a spinnerbait the water must of warmed alot! I usually stop fishing spinnerbaits once the water gets below about 65 degrees and the last time I was out last Fri the water was a very chilly 53 degrees I was fishing a new spot for the first time that pat did a spot dissection on in st augustine a beautiful creek that I heard of but never looked into it until I saw pats dissection of the creek it has more structure then alot of the creeks I fish in fact it’s kind of overwhelming when you first see it I only managed 1 small trout that I caught while trolling another creek that was across from it via the ice that creek looked like something in South fl on the right side as soon as I entered it it was lined thick with mangroves but I’m not upset at my minimum catch I was mostly exploring anyways considering at how cold the water was just got to keep trying because I just turned 59 Jan 3 and in my book you can teach an old dog new tricks thanks for the info and all you do😉👍
I appreciate you watching, Steven! Exploring is always great!
