    Saw another boat in the creek and they said the only pulled up a couple small flounders.

    At the point my drag started screaming!
    Took me awhile (I use 10lb test) but I snagged this bad boy!

    I'm so happy it wasn't over sized bc it inhaled my yozuri! I didn't want to have to cut the leader and put it back in the water bc you know those yozuris aren't cheap!

    Finished up with a nice flounder, keeper trout to finish up the slam. Also snagged a few jacks and a couple lady's on top water to end the day.

    It def was, especially on light tackle! I should have weighed it when I caught it but didn't weight it til I got home and it weighed in at a lil over 6lbs.

    Booyuhka - which Yozui you using? My brother uses them almost exclusively in Sarasota. I've never had much luck with them. Nice report.

    I caught this red on crystal minnow 4 3/8". I actually never used them before yesterday (the lures were always so expensive) but i grabbed a couple at the west marine tent sale a couple weeks ago. It wasn't a bad way to break in that bad boy
