|Casting and trying to catch fish out of the mangroves|
After an hour or so with no luck at all while casting towards the mangroves, we decided to make a run back to where we found some fish the day before where the pelicans were diving on bait. Boy were we glad we switched locations because before long we caught some decent trout and I caught my only snook of the trip. All of the bites came when the CAL jerk baits were falling or either on the bottom, since the opportunistic fish were feasting on injured baitfish, and the pelicans continued to pound the water right next to the boat. How we didn't catch a flounder in this set up I don't know!
