Haven't been out fishing with Robbie for a while and we both had something we had to do, but there is always a few hours for fishing. We left the dock at 5:50 to late incoming, choppy water and a light breeze. There was a storm just south offshore that made us wonder about our choice, but it never threatened us close. Constant lightening and thunder though. Robbie had the big fish of the day on first and after a good battle, it gill plated the line, but we saw enough to know it was a big one. Then I got a fat 32"+ fish, which was a welcome relief. I was starting to feel like Pete (Snook Spanker) said he felt when he hadn't caught any big ones in a while. Robbie struck back with a lower slot jumper that he was messing around with too long and it came unhooked right beside the boat. Then Robbie brought a 27"+ fish to the net. He had broke one lure off, broke a rod and lost 2 fish....finally success! The bite didn't last long, shutting off about 8am with only a few Jack after. Robbie was using his secret jerk bait and it out fished my topwaters. Great fun though! Back home early.
