Thanks, March


I haven't written many posts this month because I've been fishing every day and am usually exhausted when I get home.  I've also slacked on the pictures this week because we've had a lot of overcast days and the light has been terrible for the most part.  The good news is that we're still doing very well with redfish (on spinning gear) as well as big trout and mostly undersized snook.  The one above was the smallest of the month and too cute not to photograph.  I did have an angler bring a slot legal snook on a 2/0 Deceiver to the boat but thanks to the 15# leader I tied for him, it never came out of the water.  Lesson learned once again.  Fish for big snook with the same tackle you'd use for juvenile tarpon and 30# shock leader is a must.
