Default Big Lake - Friday Night and Saturday morning

Pretty good Friday night and Saturday morning fishing this weekend. I fished Friday evening off of my dock in Old Settlement and although the south wind was blowing about 10 mph, the trout were still hungry. Caught 15 tourt between 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. all on Lil Johns. Caught on 4 different colors and color didn't seem to matter. Water color was good despite winds. Turned off when a Night Boat (?) with big lights came driving by about 75 yards off my dock. Thanks for nothing to whoever that was.

Saturday morning, got out early by myself and the fog was go bad that I could barely see 50 yards out from the boat. Went to Turners and heard boats, but couldn't see them. Once the fog started to clear, there were 5 boats near me on the Turner's Bay reef, but I didn't catch anything or see anyone catching anything. Decided to head back to my dock, but messed up someone wade fishing around Deatonville because I didn't see him due to the fog until I got too close. Saw other boats out, but it was still foggy and hard to see. Sorry for those people that I got too close to, but I couldn't see you until it was too late because of the fog. Finally got near my dock and decided to try to fish a reef about 400 yards off my dock. I started a drift over the reef and immediately caught 4 flounder and a black drum. 3 flounder on Lil John and 1 flounder and the black drum on Gulp chartreuse swimming mullet. The bite turned off as quick as it started, so I trolled back and started the drift again. It was a very slow drift, because there was no wind. The tide was moving and then I set the power pole down when I caught a few. I caught 18 trout between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. (I think it was the bottom of a low tide), with 11 keepers. I try not to keep trout shorter than 14 inches. Was going to try to fish Saturday night, but wind started blowing around 3 p.m., so I decided not to. Fun weekend. Shout out to "W" for the heads up on the reef off my dock holding fish. Sure is nice to have a guide give me a fishing tip (even when I am not fishing with him). Great weekend.
