Mermentau HWY 90 South Scratched

The water looked clearer than ever and the reports from PJ were great, but nun the less it was a scratch. I fished down to the first cut off trying the tree tops in around 12 FOW under a cork set for 7'. The water was about as low as it gets and there were plenty of boats trying for a Monday. 

Talked to one boat that was catching. A tight lipped 3 some using shiners. They had tried jigs with no luck. I was pulling out at 12:00 eating my sandwiches on the road.
