Headed out kayak fishing with Jim McCarthy at sun up out of Brasher Park Monday.  Supposed to be early to mid incoming tide but we had a lot of water.  Fishing cutbait I caught  keeper redfish.  They were passing through in front of the mangroves in a grassy/rocky area in the first hr of daylight.  With keepers in the cooler we moved back towards  the salt water springs.  Caught keeper black drum on live shrimp but  the wind was out of the west and the water got so abnormally high on high tide it was like a flood tide.  No real current and wouldn’t go out. We moved back all the way out front to find moving water and fish.  Jim caught a nice 22″ redfish and I caught a 16″ flounder.  Nice day on the water
