The temperature on the dashboard read 31 degrees and as I launched the boat I chipped some ice away from the bow hatch. With a decent wind out of the West, it was clear the duration of the charter would be run with a negative wind chill. Michael and Jodee were ready to go and we set off at low tide. Found dolphins making a mess of the first two schools of reds we were looking to fish. Moved over to docks and structure with popping corks and mud minnows. After lots of casts, we found a great bite where Jodee put this beautiful trout in the boat. Caught eight reds as well and were very happy with that outcome on our chilly day.
Spent a full day charter with members of the Bohan clan as they competed to see who could catch the biggest redfish. We were fishing the day right in front of a storm system and I hoped the bite would be on. Boy, was it ever! Redfish would just flat out crush blue crab. Matt got on the board early with a nice twelve pounder only to be topped by Joe’s fourteen pounder later in the afternoon. Colby, the birthday boy, slammed the lid shut when he boated a whopping 16lb. red!
