The Catch

Went out targeting Snook and Redfish in Bay Pines area. We headed back to the bayou with a live well full of Pilchards and Pinfish. We were fishing around the mangrove islands pitching our Bait as close to mangroves as we could,after a half hour we hooked up ,nice 26 inch Snook . Than a monster Snook hit and the battle was on ,a36 inch Snook.After that we hooded a couple nice Reds in the slot(18 to27 inches). The bite slowed as the incoming tide to a end.
