Devilfish Key Unconventional Slammin' 5/15
Went around to a different mangrove shoreline to try drifting, and I saw some threadfins getting destroyed. The predators eating them didn't take any of the offered lures, but when I threw the net I was shocked to see a 25" snook thrashing around inside of it along with a bunch of small threads. Definite first for me, but hey I'll take it!
Picked up a few more dink snook on the mangroves, but by then both my dad and I were 2/3 to a slam and wanted to go find some reds. After relocating to an oyster bar next to some deep sand holes and grass, my paddletail got crushed on the first drift and I brought my first overslot and new PB red (28") to the boat after a very fun fight! By then we were both getting pretty hungry and the wind was not letting up, so after a few more drifts with nothing but trout we packed it in by 4. I usually fish further north, so it was pretty cool to come down and have a nice day on such short notice like this in Charlotte Harbor.
