Had a great day on the water with Kurt. Being my first trip on the water this year, it felt like spring training. You know the first days of the year when you start to work the kinks out of your casting stroke and you can rarely hit your mark. Missed several strikes under the docks but i got hold of a good one at inlet jetty…33 plus inches…. Sweet!  Caught several shorts in the mangroves on a day of minimal tidal flow. A very nice experience.
