that must of been fun getting that toothy guy into the boat !!!

Where were you fishing....looks pretty close to shore.....were you high speed trolling or just got him by chance ?

I was close to shore, about a 1.5 miles off shore. 200ft of water. I was targeting them, bump trolling bullet bonitas. I troll around small jigs until I catch a Bonita, then immediately hook them to a better rod. Troll around until I get the bite. Getting the fish in the boat was tricky, I only had a small pick gaff.

Got this one north of Cedar Key yesterday.  Wish I would have caught the two that crashed my Skitterwalk in the morning.

It is hard to beat watching a red attack a topwater, but dang they have bad aim!

Feels like the good old days out there guys. This was from yesterday, thought they would have been harder to find being nearly a week into season but was able to limit out without any problem.

My bride caught her first 2 trippies on her birthday yesterday. Had a fish break her off as well. Fun day and now she’s hooked

Headed up to the Pamlico with a few friends for what we like to call "Flounder Fest" . . .  Ended up with over 50 flounder with about 17 being keepers between 17 and 19.5 inches.  All these fish were caught in less than a foot of water.  

 

Got a bunch of short trout too, and got surrounded by a MASSIVE school of slot reds in 2 feet of water that we were able to pick a couple out of before they scattered.

An absolutely beautiful day, literally at the end of the known world.

  My neighbor does it the same way but used mullet, he would butterfly them and send them out on a string and drag them back in. Worked great until one day he left his daughter at one creek while he worked another, well when he went back he found her sitting there with no rope, no mullet and no crabs! When he asked what happened she said a huge tarpon slurped up the mullet and she fought it for a little while but eventually lost. I think chicken is the safer option! :D
