Pitching props up Yankees

Daily fishing report
This has been one tough week. Areas of lower Tampa Bay that held snook and reds became barren. The snook that hang on the edges of the flats were nowhere to be found and redfish would not stop moving when spooked. When tailing reds were found, it was hard getting bait close enough without spooking them. If we got a red to strike, the crash would make the school move, making proper bait presentation impossible.
