Red October Is Here!

You gotta love fall in SW Florida.

One for my grill from my buddy's awesome Gheenoe.


Nick Hiscott's big red.

His wife Linda's bigger red.

 
We're also catching a good amount of undersize snook in the same waters as these redfish.  My anglers yesterday, Nick and Linda Hiscott from the U.K., landed several of these guys and probably lost a pair of big slot sized snook.  In fact, Linda managed a Grand Slam by nailing a juvenile tarpon first thing in the morning and then getting a handful of trout, snook, and a pair of reds later that afternoon.  All of those fish were caught on a falling tide in the southern part of Matlacha Pass near the power lines.  
A nice snook for Nick.

A nicer snook for Linda.
