    That neighborhood is such a cool place. Sheepshead, reds, tarpon, drum, bass, bream all in one place. Very cool!

    yes, my kids (and me) are lucky that we able to fish like that from my dad's backyard. I wish I had that when I was a kid.
    I've even caught snook, flounder and a sea trout.

    yeah...he fought good and jumped like crazy. We caught a 15lber back there a few years back.
    That was a 15 minute battle.

    I love fishing in my underwear....I am glad to see it catching on...I think the fish just give up when they see 300lbs fishing fury wearing Fruit of the Loom coming at them..:backpeddling

    Technically, it's not a pond since it's tidal. It would be considered a lagoon. It's crazy to see how these fish
    get back there with some of the shallow areas. They must follow bait as well as the tide.

    what were you using to catch these fish live bait or artificial

    I think we were using dead shrimp. It could have been live. It was back in May so I don't remember. I know it was shrimp..
