The family that fishes together...


Took a drive on Sunday to the beach after we were done with church.  Hit up the bait shop to get some finger mullet first.  Then found an opening on the sand.  Action was good with lots of smaller blues hitting both whole mullet and mullet chunks.

We caught a bunch of blues like this one with two coming home with us for dinner the next night. 

The excitement of the day came when I was checking out some small taps on the smaller rod.  I picked the rod out of the holder and BOOM! that hit bent the rod down to the handle.  The fight was on as this was a smaller set up to catch smaller blues in the wash.

After some drag pulling runs, I was able to land and see what I had hooked up with. 

My first red fish.  It was definitely a satisfying day on the sand.  Can't wait to get back there next weekend.

When you get to the boat ramp early,

you get to see pretty sunrises.

Worked our spots, caught a bunch of fish: croaker, black bass, dogfish, kingfish, and a flounder that taped out at 18 1/4 inches.

Thanks to Capt. Bob for a great day on the water!

Hollow Fleyes

I've got the itch to tie again.

Some Hollow Fleyes for the surf this fall.
