West Bay 3/4/2017
Had a frustrating day of not catching fish. Thought I would get out on the water at daylight to fish the incoming tide and be back at the dock at noon to beat the storm, which worked out. Stopped at Fat Boys and bought some live shrimp, and we were off. Fished in the area between north and south deer island with live shrimps under popping corks, lil johns on jigs, top waters, and a 52MR. No bait fish or bird activity in the area, so we moved. Looked for signs of bait fish while we were going to the next spot and saw nothing. Got to the next spot in the middle of the bay and threw everything we had again with no luck. Decided to make a run out to chocolate bay to see if we could pick up some reds, but they weren't biting on anything we had to throw either (added in a spoon for good measure at this point). We started back to the dock and decided to check out the little canal to the east of Carancahua Lake with the mostly brick embankment. Threw popping corks all along the east side while trolling along most of the way up. At this point it was time to get back to the dock, and we packed up and headed home.
Not a single bite, no fish jumping, no birds working, no bait fish moving, just an incredibly frustrating day.
