Drifting and dreaming for two days now. Can't wait for cooler weather and a solid blue cat trip. I'm really getting ready for some bigger fish. Not to complain too much though. Could have been working instead of drifting and dreaming of Winter! Just a few pics to share.

Ended up with 11 total all about the same size. All released. Great day to NOT be working. Amen!!!

Don't be afraid to look shallow early and late on wind blown flats. One with structure and a good creek or River channel close by would be a good place to start. You can catch plenty of solid fish this time of year just have to be on your toes and trying every option.
Here's a September pig to help motivate.

Whoeeeee! That's s bunch of salt in my fresh wounds! I fished down to 7' in some creeks. To no avail! I'll find some sooner or later. Trying some new lakes next week.

clk, that's exactly what I did today. I fished a shelves early before the sun came over the trees. Sure enough the blues were in the shallows feeding on shad and bluegill.

Littlefeather, I thought that was a pig floating by the boat until I realized that was a drift sock.

No Sir Santee rig or I will even pull the float off at times if I have enough waves to keep the bait bouncing around.

Thanks for your input, Sir. My Pb blue came out of roughly 2-3' on santee. Just hard to force that shallow hunch sometime.
