Old friends, new fish! 6-10-11

I had Everett and his grandson Kalen on the boat today.  The last time Everett and Kalen were down the weather was cold & rainy & we ended up with three limits of reds plus change.

Today's plan was to change it up a little and fish new territory for multiple species using artificials.  This was not Everett & Kalen's first rodeo, as they have fished the salt marshes not only in Georgia, but throughout the Southeast.  The day started out good, with slot and oversized reds right off the bat. 

With the water completely gone, and a negative low tide, we decided to hit all the nooks and crannies with jigs & plastics.  Kalen picked up on the jig fishing and immediately landed a couple of nice trout along with some croakers & whiting that didn't seem to mind eating plastics.  As the tide rolled in, and the day grew short, we decided to flounder fish with the trusty Gulp swimming mullet.  Everett broke the ice with the first flattie.  We pitched jigs, and hopped and slow rolled them over the shells to end up with a 1/2 dozen nice flatties.  It was really awesome to see an angler try new techniques and areas, and master it as well as Kalen & Everett.  Thanks Everett & Kalen for another great trip!
