The Catch

Our first storm of the season has started the annual Mullet run and there’s always a lot of good fishing behind them..  We managed to land a 30lb Tarpon on light tackle and got burned off by a couple more..  Snook season just opened on the 1st of Sept and we managed to catch a slot fish for some table fare, which is a prize for sure..  The by catch was plentiful as well with some good lady fish and jack action..  All in all, nothing but smiles..
