Fished this morning with Danielle, Shannon, Michael, and Aiden. We spent our entire trip fishing the flats in Santa Rosa Sound for trout and it was steady action all morning. Fish were caught using live shrimp and Bomber Ba Donk a Donk SS. Getting ready to head out for my second trip of the day, going to go bay bottom fishing since Matt did really well this morning.
My friend Trevor wanted to try this kayaking thing, so I took him out to some flats. We got on the water before sunrise and threw out some topwaters. The sun came up rather quickly so we switched to the gold spoon. Man was this ever the bait of choice! I guess I had all the luck since I pulled a redfish out of every other dock. First fish was a beauty. He ripped the line off the 3000 and went for a dock. Luckily, he turned south and started to give in. He came up boatside and I pulled him out.
Perfect upper slot
At the next dock, it only took about 3 casts to find another. Got him to the yak and grabbed the camera. Another beauty
We continue our drift and work an area that looks fishy. I threw two times at the same spot and didn’t hook up. 3rd time was the charm and a red swipes the spoon. Good lookin fish for sure.
Trevor is getting pretty frustrated as he hasn’t hooked anything. He finally gets a red to eat and fights him to the boat. Another nice slot
We drift to the last set of docks and deploy the stickit. I stood up on my seat to see if I could spot anything. I throw blindly and once again, a red takes the bait. Near the boat, I could see two more swimming with him. I yell to Trevor to throw in for a chance at a double. We could see the fish rush his spoon but he didn’t eat. Oh well…I landed mine and took a pic
Wind was kickin, so I threw in one more time. Right in front of the yak, I watched a speck eat the spoon! Quick fight and he’s done.
