Have been a little busy so haven't had time to post but I;m back in Philly now so lots of time and no more fishing. Anyway went out to tropical point on Thursday afternoon and was able to catch 3 good reds. The first red was 24" and caught on a Mirrodine suspended lure in some moss outside a creek mouth.

After that fish I switched to a Zman paddle tail because the moss was getting annoying. Was fishing in about 12" of water almost waking the bait and a big 30" red drilled the bait. The moss was rapped around the line and at one point I thought a lost the fish because the line went slack but once I removed all the moss the fish was still there a beauty overslot in shallow water.

After that red I switched to topwater(always my favorite) and got a huge explosion just outside a creek mouth and after a little sleigh ride landed another 30" overslot. She absolutely choked the topwater(luckily hooks were in the roof of her mouth so no damage done.

Great afternoon on the water.

Thanks for the great report.

I lived on Pine Island for 10 years and fished regularly from Tropical Point in my shorty kayaks.

Always great except in strong north or south winds. Lots of good flats, oyster bars and creek mouths.


It is best to watch the tide report so you are not bucking a strong tide plus wind on your return trip to the launch.


I was not as good as you generally at finding redfish but trout were always around and a few pompano in season. Lots of ladyfish and jacks.


If you want more turtle grass, better to fish Pine Island Sound.


Lots of exposed oyster bars in winter low tides.
