“Pulled this red from about 2 ft of water during low tide from a beautiful pier carpeted in oysters,” said Scott Coughlin. “It was a slow day so i was not expecting much. It was a slow day up to that point.  Started the day fishing the grass at high tide with no luck.  Pulled one nice sheepshead from a dock as the tide turned.  Once we hit the flat low, we decided to fish the docks back to our launch. 

 

It was a super low tide so we anchored up at a bend in the creek where there seemed to be a little more water and where some birds had been posted up before we arrived. I hooked up some cut mullet and placed it at the waterline next to one of the dock pilings. I tried putting another line off the end of the dock which got caught up on a tied-up boat. I was about to pull anchor and untangle the line when my first rod bent over. After I released my catch I pitched another to virtually the same spot and hooked a 2nd red.”
