    Fourth trip fished Minnow Hole to Freeport five passes five rods. Changed tactics to cut plugs behind flashers. Surface temp on high tide 68.5 F, temp on outgoing 64.5. Didn't mark any fish, didn't get a bite.

    For sure, you won't have any issues with a prop there.

    Thank you for sharing your tips. Been skunked 3 times now and am getting very discouraged. I haven’t even gotten a bite or anything showing interest yet. The good news is that it can only get better, and can’t get worse for me. Ha! Ha! Thanks again!
