Amy with her Redfish The weather was nice, calm, clear and HOT! Amy, Jimmy, and Joey were in town for a visit with family. Amy wanted to treat Jimmy and Joey to a day on the water. We met up at the dock at 7 a.m. and headed out to catch some bait. The croakers and pigs were a little scarce but we managed to catch enough. The pins were thick. The tide was outgoing in the inlet and it was time to start fishing.

We anchored up, I got a few baits on and tossed them out for Amy and Joey. The bite was on because it didn’t take long before the reels started to sing. It took a couple of missed hook sets and break-offs before everyone got the hang of it. Joey was the first to put a Snook on the boat. This fish was a FATTY, the biggest of the day. Amy hooked up and landed the next fish which was a nice size Snook. Amy did a great job of holding on and angling the fish to the boat. Jimmy had a couple of fish on and something or another would go wrong. After some minor adjustments, Jimmy got a hook in a big Snook and fought it to the end for a Kodak moment.

Amy, Jimmy, and Joey continued to take turns hooking up and landing these big Snook. Amy hooked into a Redfish that gave her a fight that she will remember. After some good old tug-of-war she pulled the fish to the boat. Joey wanted a Sebastian Red more than anyone. He was casting into the hole, but kept hooking into big Snook. (yeah, that sucks!) Well everyone ended with a couple of Snook, tons of action, and some great photos. Thanks Amy, Jimmy, and Joey for a great trip, I enjoyed fishing with you and look forward to the next trip.

Eric,

My sisters and their children were amazed when they saw the pictures you posted before the sun went down yesterday. Your website ihas good colors and fonts and is just so interesting – you did a great job with it.

More important, thank you very much for showing us 3 a wonderful time fishing. Joey and Jimmy and I will talk about it until we get to go again. By the way, at the Oasis Bar one of my pictures is posted with your business card attached to it. Nalley said that if you know about the Wed. night mug deal, you have definitely been in! Nalley has owned the bar and the building for 12 years or more.
Many thanks,
