8/28 Surprise trip with Mario
An opportunity came up unexpectedly to go out with Mario (Ripnlips) to go out and test his new Power pole Blade so off we went in late morning to high incoming tide. I decided to watch Mario catch some fish for a while as he got a Snook ,some Reds, and a few others on jigs while I practiced casting with my topwater accidentally catching a Ladyfish at one point. Fishing was tough for a while as we were having high slack tide. When the water started rolling out, we headed to an area we both have had some success from time to time. Conditions were good for topwater with light wind and overcast. My practice paid off as it was my turn to catch a few, including a 32" Snook and a 30" Red and a nice tournament Red that came home for dinner. Mario got in on the topwater action with another Red. By now we were being seriously threatened by a small storm, so we left with the fish still biting and with a smile.
