Fun one today, fishing was good, with one of our more lively crews. Had General Bill, Cathy, Chris and Leanne along for the day. A real General, Bill was on R&R from his tour in Africa. When ever the big man is on leave, his gang always brings him fishing. These boys and girls come to fish and they wanted trout. Found plenty, actually on our first few casts. Most of the fish were either big whites or small specks. Picked through the trout all day at the many stops, and put several keepers on ice. Caught them on live shrimp, mullet, pogies, soft plastic and top water. We fished from 9 Mile to 3 Mile and all points in between. Cathy "The Catfish Queen" got the big trout of the day at the very last stop in the 3 mile area. Did find some reds, per the request of the General. The water was low, so some of the reds we were even able to sight cast to. Most of the reds were caught using live finger mullet against the grass or shells. Kept 6 slots, released 2 small bulls and countless rats. The bonus fish came when we nailed 4 big flounder out of one drain in a foot of water. Tried to look for triple tail on the way home, but went 0 for 0. Had all 4 members of the crew ask to go swimming, how could I say no. Put the ladder on the back of the Hydra Sports and watched the biggest kids I have ever seen jump in. One of my favorite crews to fish ended their fun filled day with 20 trout, 6 reds, and 4 flounder. Big thanks to the Old Pro, Capt Pappy Kenny for stopping by and helping me clean fish, you da man!
