And again today.

Report Date: May 4, 2019

Got a call from my old buddy Jim Goller. Jim's home burned to the ground several weeks ago, and he is just getting the itch to get on the water and take a break from all the stress. I was open today, so he and I hit the water early. we started on high incoming, and he put a whipping on the trout, and me. He was throwing a chartreuse sided Mirrodine, and wore them out. I started out with a topwater spook, and was catching bluefish. Stayed on the drop until the top of the high tide, and he had put 18 trout in the boat with 7 bluefish. I had tried a number of different colors and sizes, and only had 6 trout and 7 blues. Decided to try and catch a Cobia at the top of the high tide, and saw several on the surface. Jim caught 2, though not really big, around 10 to 12 pounds, but super fun on light tackle. Also had a very nice Spanish Mackerel that he kept for supper. On to a Redfish drop, and we finished up the trip catching 9 Redfish, and he had one over 10 lbs. Great morning catching with a great guy and super friend.
