Big Trout, Small Reds
Locals Nick and Cathy Smith hit the flats with me this morning. They scored a couple of keeper trout on Zara Spooks right away, including the beautiful 20 incher pictured on top, but then the action in the northern part of Matlacha Pass died out on us. At the end of the trip Cathy finally got her first redfish, a very photogenic rat that was immediately released to do some more growing. Stellar weather but slow fishing today. The rest of the week should only get better.
