    Fort Pierce 9.18.12

    Finally had a day to fish inshore with no clients or tournaments to worry about. Launch with a 5-10 from the south which became 15mph by 10am. The south wind and a strong current incoming tide from the north made it difficult to fish. Jacks, Blues and a few small trout was about it until 11am. First fish was this FAT! 26". Someone has been enjoying all the mullet...probally one of the largest girths i have seen on a Trout that size.

    About an hour later I was pitching a mirodine over a large hole in the middle of the flat. Picked up a 18" and then hooked into this 28".

    You aren't holding the fish right! They need to be arms length away from you so they look 6 times larger than they actually are. That's what all the REAL fishermen do!



    Nice fish!!!!

    Isn't it funny how the words "silent", and "listen", have the same letters in them?

    Glad you hung in there, Those are some fat trout. where did you launch?
    "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, martini in one hand, Cheeseburger in the other, body well used and worn out and screaming WOO-HOO What a Ride!"
