Lanark fishing July 3

It was almost 11:00 by the time we got to the ramp at Lanark Boat Club, of which I'm a proud member, and launched the boat.  Headed East after clearing the rocks and stayed inside the reef all day long.  I fished Gulp baits all day under a 4 Horsemen cork.  Nothing happening but pinfish bites if I was in less than 4 feet of water. 5 foot depth was the best for trout. Managed to bang out 12 trout from 13-20 inches, all released, and 6 reds in shallower water, all slot fish (kept a 23 incher for supper) along with about 200 catfish and a blue billion lady fish. Action was fairly steady, but the redfish bite happened right at high tide and 5 of the 6 came from within 50 yards of each other.  Shrimp colors used were pearl and new penny.  Also used a chartreuse Swimming Mullet some.  No one color was any more successful than another.

Lora had a great day on the boat too.  Beanbag, beer, and book.  Those things, along with some sun, made her very content.
