11/7 Inshore- Multiple slams..... and lots of flounder tacos!

Went out for a bit today to scout some new stuff, or water we hadnt tried since last year. Using spinner baits, jigged paddle tails, and finger mullet jigs, we found quite a bite nearly everywhere we went. We got on some real nice upper slot reds, quite a few trout and hooked about 30 flounder, catching multiple slams. The bite was on today!

The highlight of the day, for me, was when I suggested a new spot......

Last year, I learned to fish a new type of structure for flatties. Not your usual dock, bulkhead or jetties, but something else.... Without giving it away, I suggested it to Luis. He says, "No way we catch fish there. Ill bet you a dollar!"

And with that, it was on.:driver:

We motored over to the spot, and within a couple casts, I was dancing in abnoxious celebration about my crispy new dollar.
:banana

He says, "Lucky fish. No way we catch more." :rolleyes

We proceeded to wear them out after that,:fishing and since it was my new spot, I took the pleasure of naming it "Told ya so" LMAO!

Luis didnt seem to like my new spots name.:shrug

Anyhoo, Luis spanked me as usual, and caught most of the days fish.:banghead

(maybe like one more:wink)

Id like to remind him, anyone who fishes as often as him should be able to spank a weekend warrior like myself, but enough of our usual banter, on with some pics. We lost an absolute beast at the boat, but the good news is its still out there for you guys! I lost my flounder pounder partner, so hit me up if ya want an outta practice flounder pounder on the boat, lol.

Luis started the morning with a stud red...

All in all, a gorgeous day on the water, the fish were biting, and the beer was cold. Im about to stuff another flounder taco, I love fish tacos! There obviously here guys, so go get em. And as always, tight lines my friends!

    Nice job guys!!

    Thanks bud, now if we could only get on the big ones like you. I have been fishing my whole life.... last year I prolly caught 1000 flounder alone, but I have NEVER caught a 10 pounder. How you recently caught three fish over 10lbs, at opposite ends of the river, in a weeks time, is either the biggest fish story ever posted on here, or the greatest accomplishment Ive ever heard of for a flounder fisherman. Ill take your word for it, I just cant fathom how that 1 in a million luck happened 3 times an a week for you. Keep up the great work!
    Those are some fatties for sure.

    Saw you had some nice ones too!
    Next week I'm on em' Nice report, Tony. What "kind" of a spot was this? :cool:

    Thanks! Too easy to give away. Its a brand new structure, and the guy that lives there said we were the first boat to ever fish it.

    Hey Luis! I hope your partner didnt give the spot away... I sworn him to secrecy, like you did at your spot. But I would gladly trade information!

    Thanks! The only way to say consistant, is to fish all the time! Thats why I hang with dudes who get to fish all the time, lol. Theres still plenty of mullet in the river!

    You may think you know based on my pics, but I could have easily modified those pics if I chose to, like I have done in the past, but I didnt. Think about that..... and if you saw us yesterday, congrats. We fished every known flounder haunt from daimspoint to mayport. The spot we found best luck at, is impossible to see us, and the guy that lives there told us we are the only boat to have ever fished it. Not like it matters though.... our fish were only 4-5lbs.

    Our strategy, is to just motor around saturday untill we find Eddie. (Hope you know Im kidding bro.... or am I?):wink

    Lol, everyone posts smoke and mirrors at tourney time! (except me, of course:wink) I just wish we found better fish. Last year we had 7lb fish on lock leading up to the tourney, this year, more like 4-5lbs. Oh well, you never know! Im not fishing this tourney because I think we'll win. Im fishing this tourney cuz its for a great cause and my boy Chip puts on a great tourney!
