Thom and a Biggie Red.. “The Percentage man” Thom has predicted another good bite. He has it worked out and knows when the bite is gonna be hot! Well we met up around 6 p.m. and Matson and I had all ready caught plenty of bait. Mostly pigs and a few pins. The moon is full and the tide was incoming at dark. The tide switched to outgoing at 10:30 p.m.
On the first drift Thom hooked up and landed a small Snook followed by a few more shorts and a 14lb. Red. We were fishing east of the bridge when Thom hooked up in to a monster Red, man that fish was big. Thom whooped it pretty good though. We took a few pics and released it unharmed. The Tarpon are in the rough, we hooked one and jumped it. The tide was beginning to slow and the fishing was getting easier. Matson hooked and landed the first Keeper Snook.

Thom soon followed with his keeper a fatty Snook 32″. Thom was telling me to get a line in the water and to try and catch one. As soon as I threw a bait out he hooks up, another fatty 32″ Snook. I never had a chance. That was funny. Thom was on fire he was hooking up on every drift.With our limit of Snook we headed to Hiram’s for a cocktail. This was a great night, one to Remember. Thom you are the man, well the percentage man anyways. Thanks again for everything
