Clint, Drake, Tracy, and Tony #2010 Clint could not get enough fishing in on his trip. It was gonna be hard to compete with his trip of two Kingfish over 30lbs. and a 25 lb. Goliath Grouper. We met at Hiram’s and left to catch bait at 7 a.m. The weather has not changed still calm, clear and HOT! The bait was a little tougher. We did catch our share though, just a few were small. Drake and Tony were loving the bait action. Tracy did a great job of getting in on the action as well.I wanted to check for croakers so we headed for the ocean. We tried a few spots and just caught sea bass. We headed a few miles out to fish for the Bonita schools but they were just the small fish. We Ran around and found some pods just couldn’t hook up. It was time to catch Snook and we made our way back to the inlet. The Snook began to feed, the action was non-stop. Tracy caught two of the biggest fish. Drake was impressive, he was putting some muscles in to the fight. Near the end he was doing it all by his self. Drake caught several Snook. Tony was hooking up and he caught a few. Clint caught several of fish as well, all together the count was 18 or 19.
The bite was over, so we ran the beach to search for the Bonita’s. I hooked up the first fish and handed it off to Drake it was a great fight. Drake did a great job of muscling that fish. Clint hooked up next and handed it to Tony. Tony did a great job fighting that Bonita. Tony was not feeling to well, but he gave it all he had. Clint and Tracy thanks for the two days of fishing. It was a pleasure to fish and get to know you and your family.
