Mike, Mel, and Jen
Mike and Mel are friends of Jen and I. They live in Vail, Colorado. Since they have been in town the winds have not stopped blowing. It’s been tough to get them out fishing. We decided to just go out in the boat and play. First we went and caught pins and pigs. The winds were about 20 mph. out of the east. The sun was out. The tide switched to outgoing about 3ish. Once the tide switched the bite turned on. Jen hooked up first and landed a 36″ Snook. Then Mel hooked up and landed her first Redfish ever, it was a biggie, Great job!!! I caught a Red as well. Mike missed a good hit and then that was it the bite just shut off. No one around with live baits were catching fish. Get this though, They were getting fish on bucktails in the middle of the day. I would of not believed it, if I didn’t see it with my own eyes. Well it was getting dark and we had dinner plans so it was time to get. Mike and Mel it was a lot of fun seeing you two these past two weeks. Hopefully we will make it out to Vail this winter.
