Made it...

So...today was #100...a milestone in our messed up river.

I started out getting some baits. I ran down and got a slot trout on the gold & black chug bug...on my baitcaster since I forgot my elbow brace this morning...It was actually pretty nice since it gave my right arm a break from the popping of the lure.
My next stop I pull a snook. I kept on the move hitting the lee side of windy points and pulled three more trout. I kept banging known spots hoping for that red....and at 12:25....

There were a good bit more trout...finished with 9....but this is the day maker.....

    Crappy...like always...There were a couple places that were semi clean but tannin stained as you got towards the inlet.

    WTG! It's always an admirable accomplishment, but the conditions make it more so every year. :hail

    I like that FS chose to use this on their front page of the EastCoast forum.. I got a laugh that they thought it was your 100th day fishing.

    I saw that...pretty funny....I can only wish I could do 100 inshore slams in 100 attempts. :)

    Water is high... like every October Monty..but dirty in many places ...and dark tannin stained in others.

    Number won't go that high...I have a trip to Maryland to visit grandkids coming the end of this week...and hunting will be on the ramp up when I get home.
