    1-16 out playing

    My wife and I fished up around the Salt River today. What a great day in the back country. We casted plastic on 1/8 oz jigs. My wife does not like treble hooks so that was an easy fix. We only got one under size trout but oh boy we landed some nice trout over slot and a Spanish mackerel all in the skinny water. We did have to bring a couple fish home for dinner only because they were eating so hard they swallowed the bait deep.Click image for larger version.

    Hell Captin, had I seen you out there and knew who you were, I'd have followed you around like a puppy dog follows a kid! Looks like you found some Bigunz upriver!! I was pokin around up off the main river for a while to but no macks for me, not even out in the Gulf but the two snukeletz & one pushin keeper size (if we could keep em!) I caught made up fer it!! There sure are some fine lookin spots in that river, maybe too many> They all look good! Like the Groovanator says> I'll be back!!!
    I am what I am and thats all that I am!! > Popeye!
