Well, if you have left your house and stepped outside at any point in the last two days you know I still do not have an offshore report. It looks like the wind will start laying down today and we should hopefully be in store for a nice weekend.
Inshore fishing has still been very productive. I made it out yesterday afternoon and caught some good fish. We started off with a 31 inch redfish that I casted to at ten feet. He couldn’t resist the 4" gulp jerk shad. We then caught a 30" snook (on the same bait) and another redfish that was right at 30 inches. We added a few trout for good measure and then the big one got away (go figure). Devin Silas hooked a giant snook before dark north of the old inlet. The fish peeled off 100 yards of line in a matter of seconds and then b-lined it into the mangroves. The fish was caught up in the roots for a minute so I stripped down to my loin cloth (not a pretty sight) and waded in after him. Unfortunately when I got close he made his last run and rubbed the braided line in two, and the big one got away. Anyway, get out and fish the river. There are great fish on just about every flat in our area. Jerk baits and top water i(in the evening hours) are working the best.
Have a great day and a great weekend!
P.S. For those of you who can miss work or be sick on Monday, it should be a perfect day for tuna fishing!
