Dad and I put in around sunset at Sheppard's Park and made a run, dodging rain last night. No heavy rain, just a steady, annoying sprinkle. 1st light and dad hooks up, after some drag peels off the reel, he gets him around something sharp on the piling and snaps the line. I follow him up and get the night started with a 25 inch snook. On the next light, we had to catch our exotic snook for the night. This time it was a tarpon snook. We make another run closer to the Roosavelt and the fish in the 3rd picture was caught in a "super secret" spot. After that, I break out the MirrOdine and throw around the bridge pilings to see what was out there. Ladyfish, ladyfish and more ladyfish. So off to a few more dock lights, dads 1st cast and he's hooked up to a nice snook! 26 inches and it put up quite the fight in the deeper water. Now I try to get one from the same light and after 10 casts I thought it wouldn't happen. I cast and let it sink 10ft to the bottom as I pull the trolling motor up. I start to reel and "BAM!!". Hooked up and the drag peels off. The fish stays down for a while, but finally comes up and it's a beast of a snook! We got a few more snook on some lights, but none that topped the few previous ones. Ended up with 7 snook and 1 trout all caught on DOA Glow CAL's with Scorpion jig heads.
Got to sleep about 1:30am and right back up at sunrise to go wade with a few buddies. It was non stop action on the trout till about 9:30. I got 4 trout that were over slot including a 24 incher! On the way in, we hit a few docks, and I'm slammed under the dock. Drag is screaming and I'm thinking it's a nice snook. Turns out to be another barracuda?! This one bigger than last trips. Over 26 inches, so pretty big for the river. Ended up with 25 trout and a big cuda. All fish were caught on MirrOdine's.
