12/4 - Oh those nice December days....

It's like we hit December, and the days just get so nice. It's happened year before. Usually with dense fog mornings and sunny calm afternoons.

Well, no fog this morning. But also NO WIND either.















Had Kathy, John and Joe aboard the Jettywolf today. We had a chance to hit the absolute last of the falling tide and were looking for a big fish.

Kathy got it!




















Pulling it up from the "deep"......like a pro!
18 POUND REDBASS!
 
Kathy said she wanted to catch a Redfish. That's a sure nice FIRST REDFISH!
 
We continued bottom fishing after the tide changed and slide into a new spot. Target Species:  Black Drum
 
Kathy caught one of those, too!

 

 
This was happened as I had Joe & John on the float-rigs flipping back to the jetties rocks and they were hooking up big Specks and a few yellowmouth and 5 small pups Redfish. A little bit of mayhem was insueing!
 
Dropping Specks in the box....
The bite slowed, so we moved on. The next spot was dead and had a large swell pushing. That might have been the problem. So we headed back to where we came from and continued catching a few more specks for the box, a couple small non-keeper Redfish. Then Joe set the hook.......
He came to catch Reds too, like Kathy. But after a few too small, now he caught one too big at 32", to keep.
But between the 8- Trout and the Drum, the crew had planty for a fish fry dinner.

 

 
Wonderful weather day...so good I'm heading out again with Tom O. from last week.
 
Here's those "L & V" words we love to read in a marine forecast:
 
WEDNESDAY
LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS BECOMING EAST
5 KNOTS LATE IN THE AFTERNOON. SEAS 2 TO 4 FEET. INLAND WATERS
SMOOTH. AREAS OF DENSE FOG WITH VISIBILITY 1 NM OR LESS IN THE
MORNING.
He and I are gonna try it together. A one man trip. And a good one I hope. So stand by. More report to come.
