Griff and I originally wanted to surf fish, but the conditions were not good. The water was really dirty, and reports from the last couple of days were poor. So we decided to take the boat out in the ICW. When we got to the Beach Blvd. boat ramp, at 1030am, there was no parking (huge surprise!). I had to park my truck/trailer very far away, and had Griff pick me up in the boat. We headed South of the JTB bridge, and fished a well known creek on the right. As we entered the creek, there was a school of finger mullet begging to be netted. We fished the very last of the incoming, but the fish didn't bite until the outgoing. We ended up catching 2 reds, 1 trout, croakers, and cats. We did keep one red, and the trout. We ran across to the other well known creek on the east side of the ICW, but soon left due to a very electric thunder storm nearby.
Anyway, here's the pic of the most golden/red redfish I've ever seen...
Pic doesn't do the color justice, but he tasted good for dinner.
When we got back to the BB ramp, Griff dropped me off at the trailer, and I drove the truck/trailer back to the ramp. I trusted him to bring the boat over, and put it on the trailer. It was his first try, and he did pretty good. Thankfully it wasn't crowded at the time.
Is 11yrs old too young to let trailer a boat?
And, as usual, here's our simple little vid...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73e5iaT90GA&t=184s
