Incredible Day in the Bay on Saturday!!!

Capt Kenny did brave the elements on Friday. Billy Lawson and the boys were only able to go in the early morning. Normally that is not a problem, but it was 30 degrees and blowing close to 20mph! Capt Kenny was able to hide from the wind and put them boys on some fish. They dressed for the occasion and loaded the box with sheepshead and flounder. Kenny said once you found a place out of the wind and waves it was business as usual.
Saturday was an entirely different story. Everyone saw the good weather weekend day and jumped on it. We had 5 boats out, and no one left early. Sun was out, it was much warmer, and the seas were  calm. All the crews opted to do the near shore trips, and it worked great.  I had Shore Thing Platinum member Bruce Hall and his wife Leigh. My man Bruce took his bride fishing for her birthday, what a guy! Our first few stops were just a fish here an a fish there. Was getting a little nervous, but once we set up correctly to fish with the current, it was every single cast. Leigh had the hot hand all day. She caught 3 nice red fish, a mess of sheephead and several black drum. Bruce caught the biggest sheephead of the day, and his biggest red ever. Bruce has been with me on some of the best red fish sight casting I have ever seen, but they were all smaller slot fish. Leigh got an ice chest full of Ziploc wrapped presents to bring home.
It was a funny bite on Saturday, some of the crews grinded it out, and others did the stick and move. We had boats out all day long, due to staggered departures. Some crews left around 9am and others did not hit the water till after noon. The beauty of the closer/shorter near shore trip, is that we can pretty much leave when ever.
Capt Kenny had the dynamic duo of Adam and Matt in town from Tampa. I think these two had more fun than any of the crews. They catch plenty of sheephead in Florida, but no where near the size or numbers. Sounded like between the casinos and the great fishing, they will back very soon.
Capt Matt had the Skelton crew on Saturday. They were one of the later leaving crews. Me and Kenny were finishing our day as they were just getting warmed up. Judging from the pics he sent, it looks they had a lil of everything. Some sheephead, redfish, and flounder, not bad for leaving at the crack of noon.
Capt Darren was on the afternoon shift as well. He had the Edwards crew, in town from TX. They came to let the youngsters have some fun. Capt D said the youngest, Mason had the most luck, catching 15 big sheephead all by himself.
Capt Jimmy Ray was rolling with Frank and Neil in his brand spanking new 24 Blazer Bay. They fished next to us right at the end of our day. When we left them, they were making it look easy and good.
