Report Date: June 7, 2020
Fished with Ken, Simms, Will and Jake today. Started on low incoming, and got on the fish first drop. Unfortunately the ladyfish were thicker than the trout, and were tearing us up. Will also picked up a very large bonnethead. Looked around several more drops, and picked up a small trout or two, and Simms lost a big redfish on the shells. Finally hit them, and put 5 redfish in the boat, 3 way over the slot, plus several trout, including one that measured 21 inches. Threw a Blacktip shark into the mix, then finished up hooking up two more big bonnets on our last drop. Ended the day with 16 trout, 5 reds, 8 ladyfish, 2 blues, 2 bonnets and the blacktip. Everything came on live shrimp or mud minnows under the cork.
