While the conditions were near perfect this morning( light winds and a low tide), I guess someone forgot to tell the fish - they were nowhere to be found. I had a early shot at a tailing redfish, made a great cast, saw the fish turn and take it, pulled some drag… then nothing. The day wasn’t a total loss: On a quest to catch forty different species, Chris made a good dent in his “Bucket List”, anchored by this really nice trout seen below.
We did find a pothole full of ladyfish, which had me wishing I had brought the ultralight rig.
Chris is an awesome photographer in his own right (Click Here) . He will add some photos once he gets back home.
Once again, I meet and make another great friend through YakAngler!
