The weather is still perfect. The water temp. is near 76. The tide is outgoing in the mornings. I believe it was starting to go out around 8 a.m. We had a little bit of a difficult time finding good bait size crabs. After we found a dozen crabs we headed to go fish. We skipped getting croakers. On our run there we found some Bonita ambushing some glass minnows. We both casted out and hooked up on Bonita, it was fun on the light tackle. We also had a Cobia right under the boat which I threw a crab to it and it wouldn’t eat. After that we moved on. Once we arrived and started fishing, it took a few drifts and Chipper hooked up and landed the first fish of the day. Go figure, a Cobia on a live crab. It was a little short. After that he hooked up a small Permit, but what a fight on his Stella 3000. Chipper caught the next one too, which was a little bigger near 15lbs. He was 2 up on me. Well, that didn’t last long I put the next two in the boat to even the score.
We started hooking up the Snook that are there as well. I lost one Monster at the boat and Eric lost a few as well. I finally put one on the boat that was 24 lbs. and Eric ended landing one that was just a little smaller. Chipper also caught another Permit. We decided to head back to the Inlet and on the way we ran back into the Bonita and Caught one more each. We just can’t pass the fun up. Well that was a great day! We ripped the fish and safely released every fish. Check the pics and I will get some video up, so check back soon!!!
