Excellent trout bite

Report Date: June 25, 2019

Fished with Hunter Bowers and Jim Thomas and 11 yr old James, and 10 yr old Laura. First drop we hit James had a nice slot Redfish, and Laura a nice keeper trout. Picked up another trout on our second drop, and James had what I suspect was a big black drum come unbuttoned. Our third drop was a home run. The big trout were there and wanted the live shrimp under the popping cork. The kids put a whipping on them. Ended up trying for a Bonnethead shark as the kids wanted to catch one. Laura did all the catching, as she put 4 in the boat. Even though their corks were side by side, hers was the one that would get the bite. James was a good sport about it, but did have his lower lip hanging a bit. Very well behaved kids and really fun to fish. Hope Jim brings them back again.
