  • Got my first inshore slam last night

    Last night in NC so I slipped the kayak back into the marsh for an evening trip. Had a light rain most of the day, but it broke around 4PM and then some clearing. I hit the water an hour and a half before low tide, and lost a nice redfish on a gold spoon right at the kayak. As the tide dropped out I knew it was going to be slow until the tides switched.

    As it switched to incoming tide I paddled to the mouth of a creek where I knew trout stacked up a good bit. I switched to a Zman Diezel Minnow in sexy mullet. Began working the mouth of the creek and picked up several sea trout, the biggest was 17.5". I managed to also catch a nice flounder out of the same spot before the bite dropped off.

    As the tide increased, the redfish began pushing shrimp and bait up against the grass banks. I switched over to a topwater plug from Overcast Lures and began walking the dog out of the grass. Had several redfish crush it. Love when a fish can peel drag. This was the first time I had caught an inshore slam, always missed 1 species on these trips.

    Nothing big at all, but certainly a lot of fun on light tackle.

            Whereabouts on the OBX? I'll be down there in Avon with canal/sound access and I plan to take the yaks.

            Any other tips or pointers?

              I was in the southern OBX technically near Cape Lookout in the marshes. I really like the Zman soft plastics, they hold up well to all the flounder as well as pinfish. Look for the outflows of creeks etc for tidal swings, its where I had had the best luck. Just keep looking for the bait, the fish wont be far behind.
