followed by another great strike from what I think was another quality redfish only to have it come unhooked after a short fight. The water got a bit cloudy due to the amount of fish activity so I switched to Chicken Off The Chain, Alan was throwing Gulp jerk shads for a bit then switched to the new Slayer Inc SSB'S in Molting color that the trout couldn't resist.
The Redfish turned on and I picked up a nice slot fish on my Slayer inc/Tommy head jig combo that I couldn't seem to let swim off, so into the live well of Alan's Big Tuna he went. The Reds are all over the place but mostly singles like this one.
Alan picked up a few nice Redfish on the SSB'S and SST'S. Here is a shot of Alan saying goodbye to one of his reds!
And another one of Alan's nice trout.
I got in on the Trout action casting to the pot holes in the crystal clear water.
All in all it was another great day on the NMZ with a great fisherman and friend Mr. Alan Ryland! My total for the day was 6 Redfish and 6 or so really nice trout Alan scored 3 reds and about a have dozen trout!
Oh and Dinner was Great! Tuscan infused Olive Oil & 18 year Balsamic Vinegar and Basil Marinated Redfish!!!
