11/21/18 November Full Day Backcountry Fishing Charter

Great day with return customer Jeff and his buddy Bob. We had a little breeze early 15 mph out of the north. Bait was a little trickier than yesterday but we got what we needed and brought our trust shrimp along too. We hit the creeks again and it was fairly similar to yesterday. Picked away a few fish on each spot, and Bob got a real nice one early of 12 or 13 lbs! We picked a few more here and there. Then Jeff got a nice tarpon! He also got a pretty good snook later on close to 10 lbs. We didn’t catch many redfish but we did get a few in our last stop for a Slam for Jeff. After that we were running home and came across a nice mullet mud along the shoreline. Next thing you know we were doubled up on nice reds! We hit them good for a bit and a few snook as well. Then a few tarpon started to roll as the wind laid out. We rigged up for them and drifted and cast and Bob got to catch a couple tarpon! The boys each jumped one more. Then some big jacks showed up and we had a little fun with them before heading home. Wow what a great day! Off tomorrow I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Still have some days open the next few weeks, and fishings been red hot!
