What's better than.....

Getting an inshore super slam?   Going out the next day and getting your 9 year old granddaughter one !! 
Yesterday was a pretty darn good day with 22 Snook 3 Trout and a Red and a Tarpon.

And before anyone gets all worked up....that blood is mine... I had just slammed a jig in the tip of my right hand middle finger past the barb  :# ....and had to yank it out....and it bled...and bled...and bled some more....  But that is #57...Now on to the real story.



My son called yesterday and asked if anyone was fishing with me today...so I said " You...if you want to"  He said..." How about your granddaughter and your daughter in law"  ....I was " heck yeah "  It was my DIL's birthday today so I was hoping we could put something good together.

So, My son met me at the ramp and we went and netted bait. We headed back to the ramp and picked up the girls and we were off. First spot the DIL gets a jack but the granddaughter gets this...

We caught a bunch of snook and DIL caught several trout and then we got a double hook up.

The granddaughter even got this snook all on her own..no help

But getting her trout to complete the super slam put a big smile on her face..and mine too!

Tiffany was keeping score at first....but after a while the fish were coming too fast to keep it straight and the numbers got forgotten....but todays trip will not be forgotten for a long long time.... 
There are many roads to travel
Many things to do.
Knots to be unraveled
'fore the darkness falls on you
