10-10-08 001 Well the weather is perfect right now. The winds have laid down. There has been quite a bit of rain the last few days. Sorry I have not posted anything in a few days. The tide is switching to outgoing around 8 a.m. Jen and I got down there around 7 a.m. and caught our pigs, bait is plentyful. I guess there is a few croakers being caught as well. We had some fat pigs with in a hour.

When we showed up at the inlet, there were 5 other boats anchored up. I got lucky and grabbed a spot on the end. Jen tossed a bait out first and hooked up first. That was not a good situation, there were some eguipment problems. The Snook got off, oh well. I quickly got a bait out and hooked up pretty quickly with a nice keeper 31″ Snook. That was fun, one down one to go. Jen and I hooked into the same Redfish. The fish had inhaled both our baits, Jen’s hook was deeper. That was a trip, both of us were hooked up and our lines were moving together in sinc. It took a second to realize we both were tugging on the same monster Redfish. The bite was weird, it was taking a few minutes of bait soaking to get hit. I caught and released 3 Snook that were oversive, 35″ range. The Snook moved a little and we stopped getting hits. I moved us twice and got us a little closer to the tip. Finally, Jen got our 2nd Keeper and a shorty as well. It was a great day with Jen. We got to spend some time together and catch some fat fish.  Game #1 Tonight ALCS, GO RAYS!!!
