1/11/20 January Windy Day Fishing Charter

Got out with Steve, Tommy, Jules, and Taylor today for a 3/4 day.  They were suppose to fish with my brother Nick for swordfish but it had been blowing 25 knots for three days so that was a no-go.  But the nice thing about the backcountry we can always get out back there and do something.  We made a good run into the creeks about 30 miles, and once there it was nice and protected and the ride wasn’t too bad at all for the 25 Contender Bay Boat.  Fishing wasn’t red hot but it wasn’t too bad, we picked a few fish early on the falling tide, get 1 or 2 in a spot after sitting for 20 minutes, then move.  Then when the tide switched we got on to a couple good spots where we caught 6 or 8 fish.  Snook and redfish, nothing real big but a few decent slot reds at least.  We decided to cut it to a 3/4 day, and the ride home wasn’t too bad.  Beats sitting in the hotel room and again the great thing about fishing at a place like Bud n’ Mary’s, there are lots of captains with lots of boats and if the wind is blowing we can still get you out some way or another.
