DockSide Employee Nick and I decided to take a mid day fishing trip deep into the ICW marshes this weekend and found a hard falling tide with some very hungry fish. Rat reds have been close to a nuisance so far this year which is a good thing for the future. As far as their stock right now though you have to catch 5 rats to get a keeper but how much fun it is and a good problem to have. We entered our first stop in a very winding bayou I used to enjoy fishing. We started at the sweet spot where 3 bayous meet to check and see if there was any life there. I knew if we couldn't get bit there we prob were wasting our time in entire bayou. After a few minutes and no bites in the trisecting bayous I almost left writing the bayou complete off, but then 'There he is' Nick shouted flipping a 15' trout in the boat then I casted right behind boating a 17' red and the confidence now grew and the rout was on. Now with positive belief we began our drift down the bayou with countless bends and turns with interjecting bayous. Every time we came to a bend our mouth of a ditch the bite was on each sweet spot yielded 3-10 fish and the box filled up. Check out the video as it shows the action and gives good tips on winter time fishing the ICW.
