So after getting the campsite setup, Dave and I were off. Less than a mile and thirty minutes from the launch, we were on the fish. We working a small cove and I spotted this tail pop up. Since I was shooting pictures I called Dave over. For several anxious minutes nothing happened. I just knew Dave was thinking, “This guy is nuts, there’s nothing over here” when all of a sudden I heard his jaw drop.
On the second cast Dave dropped it right in front of the “Big Ugly” and it was on.
The rest of the afternoon it was one tail after another.
We poked around, never really getting out of sight of the launch, looking for the other species on our list, Redfish.
Day 1 comes to an end.
