Bernard brings the heat…again

Had an excellent time with Bernard, his Dad Bernard and his Uncle Jimmy.    Bernard is one of those guys that totes around that lucky rabbit’s foot you’d like to steal.  Seems like every trip, Bernard and gang make this way turns out to be fishy.  Although day 1 brought a load of rain, we did manage a good mess of whiting before we headed to the hill.  Day 2 we decided to run and gun for everything inshore we could find.  We ended up with a few red, white(ing) and blue (fish) slams and one traditional as well.  The redfish bite in the morning was really good, as we had double hook-ups, a few double break offs and some nice upper slot and over sized reds.  We targeted flounder and although we got one on the trusty Gulp swimming mullet, the flatties are quite stacked up yet.  The trout bite was fairly good on the high incoming, but we weeded through mostly short fish.  Had a fairly decent mess by the end of the day, and had a great time tapping all the different opportunities spring brings.   Bernard sent me a pic of his famous grilled redfish on the half-shell.  Hopefully his secret recipe is soon to follow.  Thanks guys for another outstanding trip!
