The Catch
Redfish
Snook
Summary

Becky & her husband Jack are new residents of the area.  They wanted to learn about the fish they could catch in and around our surrounding waters.  They learned how and where to catch bait, this is super important when fish turn off your usual jumbo shrimp and frozen varieties available at your local bait and tackle.  They started their morning hooking up on some juvenile snook under the mangroves.  Jack tagged one of these little guys and hopes to recapture when hes larger.  As we turned a corner Capt Andrew spotted a school or redfish moving around near a creek mouth.  He put out baits in that direction and it wasn’t long before they had a fish on the line.  Becky and jack tagged their largest two catches for Gray Fish Tag Research and took one home for dinner.
