So after the sale of my boat this week I have a sense of freedom to back to my grass roots of wading the flats with lures on light lines. I got out yesterday afternoon and was quickly reminded that I love this type of fishing. Light, easy and super fun. I fished Bayview for a few hours with a single blade lure. Two nice flathead the best going 55cm.

This will be my type fishing for the next few years I think. So relaxing and so easy.
