Especially when one was on the end of a line. Greg’s first snook. Just shy of 27”
We saw more as the day grew longer, but none wanted to play. As Greg and I were traveling down a shoreline, I caught site of something truly disturbing. A discarded gill net. Gill netting in this part of the bay is nothing new. It’s been going on for a long time and will most likely continue until harsher punishment is dealt out to those that are caught doing it. Being one that believes in karma, I headed in knife in hand to gather this bird killer up.
Not a stealer day, but not so bad either.
