Overslot Fish From Pine Island Sound
I had one of my long time anglers on the bow throwing the fly today and he didn't disappoint. Clem landed a 28" red and a 24" trout on the same shrimp pattern with his 8-wt. That trout was the largest one I've ever had anybody bring in with a fly rod. Conditions weren't easy to do this. When the tide was perfect this morning it was too windy for tailing fish. Once the wind dropped off in the afternoon there was too much water for sight casting. The only thing we missed was the snook and Clem got a decent one late yesterday so that sort of counts as a Slam. Hey, it's my boat and I make the rules.
