We stopped at a few spots and caught fish. Rob got his first keeper fish from his kayak. He was pretty stoked about that. It was a nice speck that came in at 16.5 in. We stuck around that spot for a while and picked up a few puppy drum too. I love the color on the river fish. They carry that nice gold hue to them.
We ended our day on the water with a nice sunset....
I put together a short video from that day on the water.. we can call it Part 1...
With everything that I picked up from the previous trip I wanted to go out and put it to use this morning. I got to the launch before the sun came up and was on the water in the dark. It was calm and cool out. I had my game plan set and was gonna do this trip solo. The paddle out was easy as no current or wind to throw me around. I got to the spot and started fishing. It took awhile for it to really pick up but once it was light out it all turned on. All in all today I caught 8 fish. 6 of them were keepers but were all released back into the river to get bigger. I got alot of video but the battery died about half way in. I missed a few fish and had a few follow the lure all the way to the boat and then split when it saw me. I didnt get any big gator trout but my biggest was 19 in. The sunrise was beautiful and that alone was worth coming out that early. It was a great morning to be out there and look forward to hitting it up in the near future again.
First fish of the day
wheres my rula?
I threw together another video form todays trip filled with a few hookups before the battery died.
