a few people asked for a report, so here goes...

the fishing (for me) pretty much sucked... for the week i only caught two reds, lost a monster trout at the boat, caught one bonnethead, and a slew of catfish :banghead i was pretty pissed for a majority of the trip with the fishing, since multiple times huge schools of redfish would be going after gigantic schools of baitfish, and 6 or 7 different lures later, i came up empty handed. one bright spot however, was the "one" that got away. i netted some whitebait and began to fish some docks on thursday, when my bait got slammed, and i got cut off.. on friday, i came to the same dock, and again got cut off. finally, i upsized my leader, hook, and locked down my drag, and watched as the biggest snook i have ever seen jumped out from under the dock,,, and spit the hook.. what else could i suspect..

all in all, it was a fun trip. we were able to borrow a boat from a friend, and do some wakesurfing, which was very fun, but i was not able to do any fishing other than from the kayak and the dock..

how did everyone do on our coast (the east coast) the past few weekends?
