Spent most of the morning catching and not fishing with new clients Kassie and Kainen who are down here visiting from Louisiana. I was a little leary about the full moon conditions but the fish were active as could be. We started things off by catching Kainens largest fish to date, a big Black Drum.
It might not be huge to my or your standards but to him it was a whale!
After a few more of those and a mix bag of other fish we moved on. The next spot we hit was Mangrove Snapper city. Most of the fish were on the smaller side 8-10″ with a few 11″ in the mix. They were enjoying the hard hits that mangos are known for so they played with them for a while. Next was a structure bar I like to fish this time of year that usually holds some decent trout. The trout were there but nothing huge. They reeled in a handful of solid 16-18″ fish.
and we decided to make one last stop. We pulled up to a feeding frenzy along the bank. Medium sized Snook were blasting the tiny bait fish that have invaded the area in the past week or so. I believe they are baby manhaden. We threw everything we had at them but they were dialed in to those 1/2″ fish. Oh well, it was fun to watch.
