ULM water looking much better
With the brown tide and all the wind last week, I've been doing most of my fishing further north around Shamrock and Aransas Pass. Well this morning the wind finally let up a bit so I thought I'd try the ULM. Water is still pretty brown here in the Padre Isles canals, but once I got to the ICW it looked much better. It wasn't the usual gin clear color, but definately more of a green tint and better than it's looked in the last few weeks.
Hit a couple of my favorite spots and nada. Then pulled up to spot #3 and spooked a nice red while idling in. Got out of the boat and hooked a mid slot red on the third cast. Ended up with 5 mid to upper slot reds plus 1 oversized. Also missed 4 others that shook the hook. Saw numerous mud boils and lots of small shrimp flipping on top of the water. I was actually able to see my feet while wading for the first time in a few weeks. Kept 2 and released the rest. Fish were in knee deep water and the 2 I kept were full of small shrimp about 1 inch long.
Hope the water continues to clear.
