Fishn' in July 15'

Its been a pretty darn good month, all things considered. Lots of friends have been wanting to fish and Ive actually had the time to get on the water in between working on house projects. We fished in Pine Island Sound, Matlache, San Carlos Bay, and the Mouth of the River....the bait has not been difficult, however, the influx of rain caused us to lose some bait once we left the flats and got into the backcountry.....

Here is a great friend from DRBC with a nice mid slot fish caught on a cut pinfish....24 inches.....

And one of our teens that came along for the trip.....JH nabbed this healthy red again on a cut pin.....

This fish rounded out the day for our 3rd keeper....all fish caught under corks and in depressions some 20 to 30 ft off of a mangrove island.....

A few weeks ago I was blessed to do a trip with forum member Amuleopard and his good friend and Texas native MB....they grabbed up some impressive reds that morning.....

This fish went 33.5 inches....

I also did a trip with a buddy that has been helping me with some of my home projects. We picked up some keepers, among them was this nice keeper....

This past week I was able to get out on a trip with my college roommate and old friend PL. His son joined us and we were able to get on some great fish......here is HL with his personal best fish that went 30.5 inches....

And HL also was able to pick up this fish that just missed being in the slot by an inch and a half....

The rains slowed things up just a little and changed the bite from actively aggressive to timid and lathargic but the fish did cooperate. I thank the LORD for enabling us to catch fish and have safe passage on the water....it was a great three weeks of fishing. Great fellowship, fish caught, safety on the seas.

    Nice fish and excellent work putting your friends on them! The red fishing is picking up before long it will be prime time for the big schooling fish.
