Was down there this past weekend but I don't fish bird island. I fished a few spots that I tried that were new to me and caught 6 speckled trout and 4 redfish. The smallest redfish was 22 inches. I was throwing a tidal surge split tail mullet plum and chartuse. It was pretty good in my opinion but the fishing was pretty good in my opinion.
