With huge tides and muddy water making for some tough inshore fishing, I asked Matthew what he thought about sharks. He replied that catching a shark would make his year. Off we went! Caught bonnetheads, sharpnose and blacktip consistently on cut shad. Needless to say, Matthew was happy!
Hey now! Team Aquifer reunited for our annual fishing trip as Bob and Erin were eager to continue the tradition. The fish proved finicky in front of an incoming storm system. Nontheless, we pushed on and caught our usual mix of redfish and trout. Pour one for Jesus!
On a foggy morning, the action started right away as fish crushed cut mullet and blue crab. The first time a rod whipped over I thought it was a small redfish but it turned out to be a 21″ trout. Even better, it was the first fish Laura had caught…..ever! Continued the day catching reds in the 6-8lb. range until it was time to head a home. A great morning on the water!
Having never caught redfish before, Tim and Sam started out with a bang! The pair simultaneously landed two solid 11 pound reds while dodging each other, dock pilings and exposed rocks. Hard to top that experience but we continued the day with more reds and legal trout that hit mud minnows under corks. Great job guys!
