I went scouting Monday on a day off in Steinhatchee Florida. Conditions looked tough with 20 plus MPH winds. Tides were favorable in my opinion with a negative low in the morning and an incoming tide. I always fish places I’ve never been on these days so they can often be humbling. After a hard wet ride and a few dead zones….. well Lord Almighty I found a new spot. In less than an hour had multiple decent slot reds and some impressive trout. I was using pinfish and shrimp on a 0/1 circle hook on a free line and a Top Dog Jr. suspended bait along with a black with chartreuse tail DOA with a black 1/4oz jig head.
