Still Seeing Red-SSI Fishing Report 6-26-11

Had Raymond (Elbow) and TJ from Waycross out today for a little low tide Redfish rendezvous.  We had our work cut out for us in this heat, but these guys are no strangers to the marsh, and were pretty darn savy.  The strike zone, at times, was small as a basketball hoop and these guys put it there.  We hooked the future pretty good with some shorts, as well as a couple nice over slots.  Had a couple good ones pull the hooks, as the bite was light at times.  We ended up with 6 nice upper slots for the dinner table. Raymond had a nice 22 9/10" upper slot that was not very photogenic.  When it came time to get his picture taken he decided to jump back in the water.   :angry:  A little trick that works sometimes when handling frisky Reds is to turm them upside down, and 9 out of 10 times they will go to sleep for you until you're ready to put them in the cooler, release or photograph.  Lip grips are also a good idea, but please support the belly when using grips.  All the reds were caught on shrimp pinned to jig heads, letting the current sweep the bait.  We then went on a mission for Flounder and managed only two small chips with the plastics.  Thanks again TJ and Raymond, a great day on the water!  Sorry for the sloppy camera work, as the photographer (me) had the camera in video mode.  A special thanks to my sweetie (Michelle) for working her technilogical magic in providing some stills for us:
