With Davis' heavy workload at the marina and his son A.D. here for a short time until he returns to Kentucky, we found a short window to get a trip in Thursday afternoon. With the full moon looming and the tides being what we were dealt, we headed out with fingers crossed. As it turned out, the fishing gods were smiling on A.D. and Pop. We enjoyed a good bite the entire trip with a good mix of short slot and over reds. A.D. was a little less than thrilled about chunkin back the big ones but once the reason was explained, he was very understanding.
We got a pleasant surprise when trout showed up in our redfish hole as well, and A.D. was able to get six good keepers for dinner. Had a brief encounter with some feeding tarpon, but no takers. A.D. and Davis did the shark thing as well, with a nice one close to boat side that broke off before we could take a good pic. The next shark dumped the spool and we never got a look. Sorry fellas, Capt error for sure as we're going to have to add a couple hundred more yards for some of those toothy critters. Thanks Davis and A.D., I had a large time!
