    Action Packed Morning In Ft.Pierce! 12/1/12

    We were really looking forward to getting a wading trip in with the new Unfair Lures so Chris, Dad, and myself hit the water this morning. Showed up to a glassy calm river and immediately got a nice trout on the Rip N Slash. We all caught a few jacks and ladyfish before I stuck a nice 20 inch trout! The wind starts to pick up and then I hook into a good fish! It's not jumping and feels pretty heavy. Pull it up beside me and up comes an absolute monster of a ladyfish. My personal best for sure. Now we go down a little further, battling the stiff 10mph east wind(we were on the west side). I'm hooked up again! This time with another just over slot trout. Not even 5 minutes later, Dad is hit right beside him! Fish on! Up comes a big trout! After some short runs, we land the Gator!! Dad's personal best wading trout caught on the Rip N Slash! Unfair Lures got a lot of attention today!

    All nice fish, wtg.

    Are those fake gills hanging out of the lures? That's some good detail.

    What is your tackle setup for catching those trout (rod/reel size, line, leader)? Awesome trout!

    Fi$h2nguyen - That is gills on the lure. Just one of the many features that come with the Unfair Lures.

    Snook87 - Thank You!

    Inshore Only - I use a Penn Fierce 3000 on a 6'6" Berkeley Lightning Rod. 20 pound braided line with 30 pound leader(in case you hook into a good snook or something, you wouldn't want to be broken off).
