With both a beautiful day and a need for gas, I decided to go south into the middle grounds and then hit the gas docks. After several long drifts without a bite, I decided to head over to get gas. Queen City Marina (formerly Morrison’s) wasn’t busy and at $5.61 per gallon I can’t imagine why.
After refueling, I drifted by the hole just north of the marina entrance and quickly caught the weakfish shown on a new penny shrimp teaser. Further drifts were unsuccessful, so I decided to return to my dock. BTW, the weakfish was a male with an empty stomach and measured 17.5″!
