8/12 Afternoon

After dropping off the guys from the morning trip I got a quick bite to eat and got in touch with a friend of mine Capt Paul Swett for some afternoon action.  We arrived at dead low tide which in Venice is great. The water clears up and the fish become stacked up in schools that make for some great action.  Capt Paul brought along Brant Crenshaw of BD Outdoorswho not only caught his first red but got a good one on the fly.

Tide – rising tide in the morning then falling in the afternoon.
