Another great night at the HRBT!!!
Here's the summary of the evening...........Pedaling the blues and croakin' at night
Total time on the water: 5 hours (4 1/2 hours of fishing time)
Launched at 9:00pm into the start of the ebb tide
Bluefish were blitzing the surface busting glass minnows all night
5 total species landed: bluefish, croaker, grey trout, flounder and a hickory shad.
Best fish of the night were the 16 3/4" Hickory Shad, the 12" croaker and the 14" Grey Trout (aka Weakfish)
Lure of the night was the Marsh Works Bayou Thumper in Pearl and Morning Glory that I soaked overnight in some Gulp Alive formula leftover from an old Gulp container.
