Sunday Slam

Headed out Sunday for a few hours in the morning to catch the outgoing tide.  Launched out of the Cotee and headed to get white bait.  A LOT of small net-wreckers but eventually the big bait showed.  With the livewell full of pins and greenies we headed to Anclote island.  Anchored on the beach and walked to the northern most point to wade and fish the channel.  Water was screaming as it was flowing out.  Wind made it a little difficult with casting but we managed.  Ended up with only 3 snook, biggest was 22".  We also got a total of 10 trout with the biggest at 23" and 6 reds, biggest at 28".  Had 5 really fat bluefish that were pretty fun to fight as well working against the current.  Had to use a 1/2 oz of lead just to slow the bait with how quick it was rushing out.  Only fished until 1130 and back at the mayhem of the cotee ramp by noon.  All-in-all, a pretty good morning complete with a few pet manatees around our feet and seeing a big ray jump completely out of water three different times...always pretty cool to see.   Snook were caught on the greenies and the rest were on pinfish.
