Great start to fishing in 2015

Most of the Shore Thing guides have been spending the winter in the woods. Proud to say that the ducks, hogs and deers have been feeling their wrath. Despite the cold and wind, we have had some insane fishing trips. We always try to go for the best bite, and the most action. Most of that has been happening close to the dock, on the reefs and structures. Have yet to make it to the LA Marsh in the last week, but with the fishing so good in close, there is no reason to make the run.
Capt Matt ran a last minute trip for a couple on their honeymoon earlier in the week. The bride and groom enjoyed non stop action(fishing), on their trip. I texted Matt in the afternoon, making sure he was ok. They had left late, to take advantage of warmer temperatures. Matt had no reply on his text, just a picture. The entire bow of his boat was slap full of fish. The two person charter had a haul of red fish, sheephead, black drum, flounder and even a few sparkle trout. I caught up with Matt the next day, he said they released even more fish the last two hours of the trip! Judging from the smiles, it looked like a good start to their marriage. Happy wife, makes for a happy life...
A few days later, on the back side of an artic blast, I was on the water with the Adams crew. Danielle, Richard, Clint and Daigan were chomping at the bit. I made sure they all knew that the wind chill forecast was predicted to be in the 20's! Danielle assured me that they had brought plenty of layers of clothes down from Laurel, MS and they were in it to win it. It was chilly, but we left a little late and it really was not that bad. The water was clean and the fish were hungry. We kept moving around, not looking for a bite, but looking for Daigans red fish. They literally loaded the boat with sheephead, drum and flounder. Sad to say, Mr redfish was either not around, or could not beat the other fish to the bait. Seldom did they make a cast and not get a bite. I had my work cut out for me cleaning all those fish. This crew was a huge help at the skinning shed, especially with all those sheepshead. Looking very much forward to having this crew back.
Still got boats open if anyone wants to get in on the fun. The bite is good in close, and we don't have to make long runs to get to them. We have been leaving later on the colder days, taking advantage of warmer temperatures. Just dressing for the occasion, and having a great time with the incredible winter time fishing. Let us know if you want to get in on it...
