A couple more...and a nice Trout.

So, Saturday was a long anticipated trip with my son. His life is busy with work and my granddaughter so I was glad we could get out. Fishing was not spectacular...but we caught some trout...and I did get a snook but was refused twice by a Red so no slam. 
We netted some bait and ran south of Sebastian inlet looking for a couple Kings for his smoker...but we got two jumbo Spanish on our King baits.... 

Sunday,  I opted to launch at Wabasso to avoid the crowds and it was a slow start. First three spots were empty but founds some Trout and caught 4 before starting the look around for snook & Reds... Next spot was a small snook...and relocated to a known Redfish spot and got this.....

Kept looking and got a better snook....

So...that makes #40 

Today I launched right behind topwater guy. I caught 3 trout at my first stop and rather than wait...ran to get going looking for Reds & snook. Nothing in my first stop but went to look at a shoreline I had not fished in a while and caught 4 snook...but all cookie cutter sized...

Relocated and probably 40 yards from yesterdays redfish...

So...Now I went looking for better stuff and after getting 2 redfish refusals...I was almost ready to quit since it was pretty hot....but glad I didn't.

Now that..... is a TROUT!  Made my day. 

OK...that's # 41 and I am closing in on last years half way mark....
There are many roads to travel
Many things to do.
Knots to be unraveled
'fore the darkness falls on you
