Been way too much fun tossing Bomber spinner bait to grass-bed reds and soft plastics to bass and had decent window of opportunity today to chase both bass and reds.Launched at Cane,navigated thick matted salvinia and knew I had only a few hours before predicted big ole thunderstorms would roll in from S Shore.Made my way to protected cove,tossed Yum Swimming Dinger,black and sapphire and nabbed two bass,let first guy go(he was a tad small)and hit thick grass beds,tossing Bomber Spinner Bait and tangled with two fine reds,when I nabbed second one,he had at least three similar-sized reds cruising around like they typically do.From bow of Southfork,easy to see exactly where ya need to place lures and I did spook a few reds just before huge,predicted(WUnderground)thunderstorm started rolling in.Have absolutely no doubt I woulda nabbed close to solo limit had the storm not chased me in!!!Have meetings tomorrow and Th or I would return and chase more fine grilling-sized reds with no need to measure a single one!!!They hang out in grass beds,along with the mullets and stingrays and today I spotted at least 5 big stingrays,never a bad sign!!!Probably accidentally spooked at least 5 nice reds,the water is gin-clear where I target them!!!

Side note,the red with two spots on one side of his tail musta been quite hungry as he had small croaker lodged in his throat and guess the Bomber Spinner Bait looked like a small croaker to him!!!Plenty of hungry reds out there,just find the best-looking grassbeds,find the mullet,and reds not too far behind!!!Best part of both trips is I burned about 2 gallons of gas each trip!!!
