Palataka Shrimping and Fishing 10/3

So we trailered our boat down to Palatka to hopefully get on some shrimp, and catch a few bass. We were in the water at the Palatka city boat ramp @ 7a, and it was so nice. We were able to bait up w/ medium sized shrimp after a couple of stops. At best, we would get a dozen a cast, but it was mostly 3 a cast. My buddy Kevin took us to some of his top secret bass spots, and they were home. We caught 17 quality bass total, w/ a few over 4lbs. The weather was perfect, practically nobody on the river for a Sunday, and the fish was sweet! The only thing that could have made it better, is if the shrimp were plentiful.

The bass we caught were gorged w/ shrimp. Many of them had antennas jutting out of their mouths...

Griff's first fish was this fatty...

Eli got his new PB w/ this 4.7lb fish...

We brought home a few of the smaller ones for dinner...

I ended up w/ a nice pile of clean filets, and headed/deveined our leftover shrimp...

Dinner tonight is gonna be real good!
