Lots Of Wind And Lots Of Fish Off Pine Island
This morning was Day Two with the Jersey boys Bob and Harry. It went very well despite the honking south wind and partially overcast skies.
Harry's first catch of the day was this 33" cobia that hit a Gulp at the top of Matlacha pass just after sunrise. These are one of the best tasting fish in the ocean and a rare catch on the flats around here but we sent it back to grow a little bigger.
Bob with one of several 20" trout the guys caught out in Pine Island Sound. All of these fish hit Gulps worked under corks.
Harry's 24" red was a bit smaller than the over-slot bull he landed yesterday.
Bob's last fish of the day was this perfect 26 1/2" red that ate a live shrimp right at high noon. A perfect way to end our trip.
