It felt more like winter today and yesterday than it did most days in February!  Yesterday was absolutely brutal!  If you can believe it, I played in a golf tournament yesterday and it was tough.  The temperature never got above 35 degrees and it was a four-club wind out of the northwest all day…..for you non-golfers out there that’s like 20-30 knots.  It was still cold today, but the wind calmed down enough for at least one angler to get out and try his luck at the rockfish that have been being caught around the route 90 bridge.

Going through the day thinking there was no way I was getting a fishing report I was pleasantly surprised when I got an email from my buddy Nick Denny this afternoon.  Nick jumped in his kayak this morning and fished the marshes around the route 90 bridge where he slayed the rockfish.  Nick used the world famous Roy Rig and Rip Tide 5″ mullets on 1/2 oz jig heads to catch a bunch of fish.  Nick stopped counting at 12 and says he must have caught 20 or more with the biggest fish measuring in at 24″.  After talking to anglers that have tried this out now it seems to be bite based on tide.  Currently it doesn’t sound like high or low matters so much, just that it’s moving.  I hope to be trying it as soon as the weather gets straight later in the week.
