Sunday was annual Redghost tournament in islamorada for junior Anglers! I had my repeat junior anglers that I charter monthly Gabriel and Reagan! We started out the morning running across Florida Bay! It was slicked out and we were trying to beat most of the boats that were in the tournament to the spots! started out the morning with huge schools of redfish averaging 34-40 inches in size and in school of 80-100 fish! We needed catching 8 redfish in 2 hours and then we saw a few schools of snook and tarpon and we just had to give them a shot! We joked 4 snooks and 5 tarpon on the flats! But these species didn’t count it’s a bonefish and redfish only event but when fishing is that good you just have to give them a shot! We left there before ending the day to try and target bonefish we had one come off but ended up catching a nice black drum and another redfish! Fishing is awesome right now so give me a ring and let’s get you out on the water for some action!
