Kevin(permit_me) and I fished the mangroves on the incoming early Friday. Bite was good and we got a dozen reds, a couple small snook and a good number of keeper snapper. Fish were tight against the groves. We used live shrimp, mini grunts and pins. We also threw a wide variety of artificials but I don't think either one of us caught anything on them. Kevin did have a serious hit on Rapala. We figured it to be a good sized snook. I ended up with a slam (redfish, snook, trout and mangrove snapper) but not a braggin' slam. Company and the weather was good in the Big Bend.
Ted got a slam. A slam is always a good day.
We'd been trying to get out for a few weeks now...thanks for getting me out. now to uncover my sled and get it out there this week, weather permitting.
