Ray, Joan, and Kristie
Ray, Joan and Kristie are from the gulf coast of Florida near Tampa. I picked them up at Capt. Hiram’s in the morning. The water temp. has dropped a bit. The tide was coming in when we left the inlet. There was no signs of bait in sight. There were some Bonita exploding on some glass minnows. We got close enough for Ray to cast and hook up twice on Bonita. He landed the first one and handed off the second one to Kristie and she landed it.
We didn’t stay long before leaving for our fishing spot. Things were slow for awhile when we got there, plus we had no live bait. Ray caught a blue runner and we put out there and a Big Cuda or King hit it. I saw the fish but just could see the back of the fish. It was black so most likely a huge Barracuda. After a few more passes, Kristie hooked up with a good fish. She did a great job of handling the fish. After some good fighting she landed a nice permit. On the next drift she hooked another but it got off. Ray caught a keeper Redfish a few moments after that. It was a beautiful day. No wind but some storms to the west. Thanks again Ray, Joan, and Kristie. I hope you enjoy the fish!
