Low Tide at Cedar Point
Breakfast will be severed from 8 a.m. till 9:30 a.m. We will have coffee, donuts and sausage biscuits.
If you launch by 10:00 a.m. this will give you 3 hours of outgoing tide and a few hours of incoming tide before it get dark. As the tide is going out the reds will move from the back of the creeks and stay close to the mouths of the creeks. Some of these spots will be the mouth of the creek at the intracoastal and some of these spots will be at the creek mouths inside the larger creeks. Any small creek that dumps into a larger creek can be a good spot to check out and wait for the reds come to you. The lower the tide gets the easier it will be to see the reds moving around. I have not fished this winter but the reds should be in schools when you find them. If you want to blind cast then cast to the base of oyster beds or to points or any other structure you see in the creeks. Also cast to choke points between oyster beds.
All crab patterns and bait fish patterns should be good to use. A black clouser is always a good fly to use. When you cast to a moving fish, do not look at the fish, look 4-6 feet in front of the fish in the direction they are moving. If you look at the fish and want to cast ahead of them, in most cases you will cast right on top of the fish because you are looking at the fish. Got that piece of info from an article in a magazine article years ago and it is true.
The sun will set about 6:20 so keep that in mind because there is no lights at Cedar Point. The moon will be almost full so that may help. The weather forecast is mid 40’s to 60 during the day.
