Scott R. and Larry T. 9-16-07 Reds Scott R. and Larry T.

Scott and Larry are from Orlando. The weather was nice, we met up at 6 p.m. and headed to get bait. Bait wasn’t a problem, they have moved a little north, pins and pigs. At sunset we made our way to the inlet. The tide was still outgoing and the fish were east of the bridge. Scott and Larry both missed a few hits. They both had one double that crossed and cut both of them off. It was taking a bit for them to get the feel. Larry hooked a nice Red and got it next to the boat and it was a little bigger than the slot. I lost it for Larry it was my fault. I was trying to land it with out a net and that time the fish won.

On the next drift Scott and Larry both doubled up again with nice Reds and this time they landed them. We took some pictures. The tide slacked and the bite was shutting off. Larry had to leave so Scoot and I went back and fished until midnight. The fishing was really slow. Scott and I fished the everywhere and could not produce a fish. There were no fish even marking. It was the very last drift at 12:15 a.m. and Scott hooked into a monster. It gave him one heck of a first run and then just laid there like it was a rock. I told him to just keep pulling and reeling. Scott did a great job at keeping that fish up. It ended up being a Goliath(35 lbs. approx.) It made for a good ending after a slow night. Thanks Scott and Larry for the trip it was fun.
