    Flamingo 01/15/13 & 01/16/13

    I had the day off on Tuesday (01/15/13) and nothing booked so I decided to enjoy the day and do a little fishing by myself. Got a late start and was not on the water till around 9:30am and got to my first spot at around 10am. Right away I started catching Reds, mostly in the 15 to 20 inch range, and a handful of small Snook. After bending the rod on some Reds and Snook for a while I decided to try and fill the cooler with some Sheapshead for dinner later and was not disappointed. I ended up catching a handful of Sheapshead in the 16 to 18 inch range and a couple of Black Drum just for fun. Was done fishing by 2:30pm and back at the ramp by 3:00pm. Not to bad for a few hours of fishing Solo.

    The next day (01/16/13) I fished with local angler Thomas, who fishes with me on a regular basis. He had the day off and I can not think of a better way to spend it. The weather was beautiful and the fish were hungry. We each caught a handful of Red fish up to 24 inches, with Thomas catching the biggest ones. After that we caught a handful a Snook and a couple of Black Drum as well. During the day I had mentioned to him that I fished the day before and had caught a bunch of Sheapshead not to far from where we were and he was game to give it a try. Just like the day before the Sheapshead were there and ready to eat. We caught our share of Sheapshead for the rest of the day and even had a few surprise catches of a small Goliath grouper and a nice size Blue fish. Just another beautiful day in paradise if you ask me.

    Looks like the sheepshead with the missing tooth got in a scrap with that redfish with the busted face! What is up with that thing? You have any more pics of that red?

    Unfortunately that's the only pic I have of that red. I fumbled him right after taking that pic, was a pain trying to hold him in one hand and the camera in the other. It looked like its jaw was broken at one point and healed back the way you see. It had no problem eating the lure. The bugs were little nats that were back in some creeks. Thankfully they did not bight but were all over the boat.
