Morning/Evening... Slamming It Out! 11/24/12
Loaded up the kayaks and headed out to our spot with a beautiful sunrise and some chilly weather to greet us. The trout were spread out, but decent in size. No dinks, but no monsters. Dad gets slammed by a monster bluefish that dragged the yak around for a while. Plenty of jacks to keep the blood pumping in between trout. Went home, ate some lunch, and got some school work done before Chris texts me. About 2:00, were off to go wade! It was glassy calm for the most part so Chris threw the shrimp while I threw a CAL. Right away got into the trout pretty thick. Chris is catching one after another on the DOA Shrimp, while all I was catching were smaller trout and jacks. So I tied on a Charlie's Shrimp and immediately got a nice trout. Then Chris hooks up right beside him to a much bigger trout! Not a gator by any means, but well over slot. With the tide getting higher, we head to a sandbar I know of and once out there, it wasn't long before I hooked up to a big fish! Drag screaming off the reel, rod doubled over! Never saw the fish until the end of the 5 minute fight when it showed itself. Nice upper slot redfish! Got some good pics and released. Completely happy with the trip, Chris makes a few more casts and wouldn't you know it! He gets a small snook to complete our slam! Overall a great day. Fish were caught on DOA CAL's(Greene) and Charlie's Shrimp(gold/glow).
