    Green Mile 8/17/2019

    Got out around 8:30 tonight to catch ribbon fish. Was surprised there were already six people at the end fishing for ribbon fish. Started out with a Christmas tree grub with no luck. Then tried a while grub with no luck. Switched to electric chicken Bass Assassin and got one fish and some bumps. Cut a half inch off the Bass Assassin and got a few more fish. Then caught one with a pink grub. The fish weren’t exactly hitting hard. Others had much better luck with Gulp grubs and Rat-L-Trap. Not much size to the fish. Saw a few croakers and spot pulled up along with a ray and shark. Saw two otters swimming around. Someone caught a fish that sort of looked like an eel but not..maybe someone could ID it...

    Mystery fish is a sand eel. They are a very popular bait in Great Britain.

    Ribbon tastes close to flounder. Fairly mild. Not many bones.
