8/8/17 Inshore Matlacha
Mike hooked up with a decent fish which turned out to be a 29" redfish. Quick pic and swam away strong.
We continued working the shoreline picking away at some snook, with a few BIG girls that followed and swiped but missed my lure.
Once the water got pretty high into the mangroves, we picked a nice point with moving water and set up try and coerce some fish out of the trees. I cut some ladyfish up into chunks, and spread them out. One rod went on the bottom with cut ladyfish, and casted with my fluke for for a while. Mike continued with rgs success on the jig head and shrimp combo. He boated an undersized red at 17.5", follow by a 16", followed by a 22 inch keeper. I finally gave up on the fluke and went with a live shrimp. Low and behold, redfish on. Not Nora huge fish, but at 18.5" it will make a great dinner on the 1/2 she'll she'll on she'll on the grill.
With rhe sun now beating down and feeling like the Sahara, we called it an early day.
Always a pleasure fishing with you Mike and look forward to doing it again soon.
