Fished Chad and Christy today. Was glad to see Christy, so we had a chance to catch a few good ones! And she did. We started on High incoming tide, with the water really clean and pretty. Picked up a keeper trout on our first drop, then hit a couple of redfish drops catching more trout. Ran to a big flat with a creek pouring out, and it was game on pretty good. Ladyfish, Bluefish, and trout were all mixed together. Had them throwing a cork with a live shrimp, or mud minnow. Didn't seem to make a lot of difference. Christy put a couple of big trout in the boat, one almost 22 inches. Had several in the 20 inch range. She put a nice upper slot Redfish in the boat, while Chad was catching Bonnetheads. Ended with 18 trout, 8 Ladyfish, 4 Blue fish, 3 Bonnetheads, and the redfish. Lots of bites and a very fun couple to fish. Really enjoyed the morning.
