I tried to see if the snapper blues are still in Essex today. It was really windy. I didn't get a single pull.
My alternative was to sight fish for bluegills, pumpkinseed, and crappie. I put on a cinnamon Kate McKlaren and it did it's job brilliantly. The big crappie way the highlight of the morning.
I also checked out a little black-water creek flowing through a ditch along the highway, I have seen some fish moving around in it before. I suspect they are redfin pickerel due to the type of stream. I was unable to hookup today.
