Got out early and started catching slot reds and small snook and then in caught 2 big snook and 2 bull reds in the afternoon. Caught bulls on cut bait under a cork and big snook on 1/8 oz jighead with z man scented paddlerz. The biggest of the snook is the biggest fish I've ever caught on artificials. Caught flounder, snook, redfish, blk drum, and trout. One of the best days I've ever had fishing!

    Awesome catch, looks like you are at the right place at the right time.

    Haha! Yeah, where's all the fish? Wow, what a good day of fishing, especially in this heat! Nice work!

    I appreciate it, I think the only reason I caught those fish in the heat was my location. I was fishing deep water next to shallow grass flats. I usually don't catch too much in the heat of the day.

    Nice catch!

    Btw, how do you like that Blair Wiggins rod? Been looking real hard at getting one.

    Nice work! Gotta love those little Battles! That gear ratio and line retrieve just horses fish out of the water.

    It's funny you ask about the blair wiggins, I love how lightweight they are and haven't had many problems. But that last snook I caught broke the medium light blair wiggins I have. The snook went for another run straight under my kayak and before I could put the rod tip in the water it snapped - I think a bit too easily. And yes, I love battles! I caught the bigger snook on a battle 3000, they are tough reels for the money.

    Nice catch. It is good to see the snook doing well on the west coast.:Rockon
