The weather has been near perfect for the past few days. The humidity is gone and so is summer. Welcome fall! Welcome holidays!  Al, Stacy, and Frank have fished with me for the past few years. I picked them up at Capt Hiram’s just after the TB Rays were eliminated from the playoffs. 🙁

We went and caught plenty of bait(pinfish). A lot of mullet right now moving around the flats and the Sebastian Inlet area. Al was fishing some hand picks and caught a Ladyfish and a monster Bluefish. The tide in the Inlet is outgoing til 11 p.m. We fished the rough waters off the south jetty. It was extreme fishing at it finest! Al put the first fish on the boat of the night. It was a nice Red that weighed 23lbs. Stacy  hooked up next and landed a big 34″ Snook. On the next drift,  Frank joined in on the action and caught a nice Red. There were some BIG REDS in the inlet last night. Frank had the biggest of the night, which was approximately 35lbs. I guess I need a 60lb. Boga grip! Frank also had a 33″ Snook. Those were the only two snook caught.  The Redfish bite was happening and we were hooking up  on every drift.

The winds picked up around 10 p.m. and the tide started to slow. The fishing got a little difficult. We fished till about 11 p.m. and called it a great night! No keeper fish but a lot of keeper memories! Thanks Al, Stacy, and Frank it is always a blast fishing with you. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for our Thursday trip.
