Flats slayin'

took the yak down too Aransas for a quick day trip weds.

Top water bite was very slow. 3 reds blew up and chased but never committed. Nailed a 17" trout and moved to work another area.

Saw what I thought was mullet so like they say "go where the bait is". Except, it wasn't mullet I cruised up on. It was a school of 50-80 redfish moving all around the flats eating very small shrimp and crabs.

Soft plastics were the tickets and caught a few dozen rat reds and 4-5 slots. Kept 2 for dinner along with the trout.
