Miachel had quite a suprise. He put on a Got Leaders RRD90 and baited one hook with pinfish and the second with crab. After a short time somthing bent his rod over severely and after about 15 minutes he was able to reel in and land two oversized reds at the same time. One was 36" and the other measured out at 35". I doubt he will forget this day fishing with dad very soon. Great job guys

Seth and I wade fished South Bay a little Monday morning. Water low and not very clean. Wind out of the East early turning to the Southeast later. Tide was coming in but stopped after about an hour. Pretty slow, we caught 3 trout ( one was 25"), 1 hardhead and 1 skipjack in two hours. Talked to several fishermen that said the trout bite was great until about 2 weeks ago then it fell off. By my logs it should pick up again in a couple more weeks. Had a good time fishin with my son. I kept one fish (first one this year) because He wanted to take some home. Be safe and release what you dont need

Had a chance to fish for a bit Monday morning. Waded around South Bay near South Bay Bait shop at 8 am. Water warm enough to wet wade, sunny and almost no wind. Water was high and tide coming in strong and clear. Skipjack busting ribbon fish in the channel and lots of Sargassum drifting by. Started with shrimp and alameda poppin cork. Caught 1 tout to 16" and another to 19". Removed cork and free-lined live shrimp. Caught 10 more trout they averged 20 inches with the largest being 21's. Caught 3 reds, (2) 27's and a 20". One 23" sheephead and 1 skipjack for good measure.All were released to fight another day. All were caught with the new 200 G7 Curado. Using 30# Power Pro Super Slick 8 rigged to a 24" flourocarbon leader and 6/0 croaker hook. The two 27 inch reds were caught back to back and managed to pull drag quite a bit.The G7 cast free-lined shrimp as well as the Calais I used some last year. The reel performed great and I plan to use it a lot in the future. At about 9:45 am the wind picked up a little out of the NNE forming a light chop on the water. The bite slowed and being low on bait I called it a day. Days like this dont happen often but eventually even a blind hog finds an acorn

Tres and Patrick fished a hole in South Bay Sunday morning. They were able to find some pony mullet in Turtle Bayou. Water was gone once again. They tried cut mullet with no takers so they set out a rod with dead shrimp and began to catch fish. Four reds were caught with 3 slots. The largest was 27"
