Long time regulars, the Pilla family, came out this morning to fish the falling tide. Started nicely with slot redfish eating cut menhaden. Moved over to popping corks and caught some beautiful keeper trout with mud minnows. Anchored up in the inlet in search of bigger quarry and the bites just weren’t there as we rotated through every possible bait. As I got the boat ready to head back to the dock, one of the rods twitched and then whipped over. Half a blue crab with the shell on turned out to be the magic bait and it produced a 38″ redfish!
