There were no big fish activities from my observations. When I got back to that area that looked like a flat that the creek cut through the tide was starting to go out. I decided to go into a section that had numerous small grassy patches. First cast, the gold color D.O.A. C.A.L. Shad on a red jig head the rod bent over and the line started screaming off of the Penn Fisher V reel. Uff da the drag was set way too light. Tied to set the hook not only line came off the reel. I decided to adjust the drag and when I made this choice the fish decided to throw the hook. Uff da I had lost a nice fish more than likely to my stupidity. Did a little more fan casting and continued to work my way across the flat.
In the mean time my buddy Greg decided to try the area. In no time he had a 19 inch redfish. I made my way back to join Greg and he informed be that there was a small school of reds just off to his left. We presented a lures but no more action. The water in this area was getting pretty skinny so we worked our way off the flat back into the break.
