Specktacular Lynnhaven River

Fished in the Lynnhaven this morning in my kayak.  I think there were puppy drum on the flats, but there's SO MUCH algae in there from the spring nutrient loading that every retrieve was a snag.  I will have to tie some unweighted flies and add weed guards to fish those waters this summer.

Switched to outside the flat in the main stem of the river, still on the incoming tide.  Caught two nice specks while the tide was still moving - the biggest one was 18+.  Surprised to see them this early and this big!  Should've had my tagging gear, but I was traveling light.
