Nice catch!  I've heard reds are good to eat.  How were they?

Great looking fish Spyder. We're those from Cockroach Bay?

Looks horrible! Probably got tired of reeling them in. Lol! Snook may be under length but they sure burn some line looks to be a great day out. Live bait or lures?

Nuke it was a great day, but everyday on the water is a great day.

OE, Redfish are very good table fare, but the pull when you hookup is outstanding, especially under the mangrove where we were.

Thanks Dave always

Greg, yes Cockroach bay, one of the spots I tried to take you, but the wind was kicking our butt.

Thanks Sarge.

LOL, Jimmy I did get tired of those snook, too many to count. all live greenbacks, throwing a lot of live chum.

was out in the Gulf yesterday.  Put in at the County Park off CR326.  Waccassasa river.   Stayed out all day.  Caught probably two dozen Reds. Not a dang one of 'em over 16 inches.  Sure were fun to play with, but no keepers.

Great job. Even though no keepers, those sure are a blast to catch. Were you on the kayak?

no Greg,  I was on a friend's 23 foot Carolina Skiff.   I don't know how I would have gotten to the site in a kayak.  Just too many miles.
