Default Bon Secour/Intercoastal April 18

Went Fishing this afternoon near the mouth of the river. Huge mullet were jumping everywhere and I also saw lots of boils of disturbed water like jacks make, but smaller. One of those boils happened under my paddle tail and a fish started pulling drag. Felt like a very lively upper slot red. Finally, got the fish to the boat and it was the largest gaff top catfish I ever caught. Had to be 7 pounds. Sent him on his way and cleaned the slime off my leader. I made a couple of drifts down the river bank and caught 4 specks. One short and three fat keepers. Hooked one very large female and watched her shake her head and spit the hook. It's like she was saying "not this time buddy." Overall, it was a very nice evening on the water.

Went again yesterday. Plenty of small trout, large catfish, and large reds. All caught on paddle tails. Released the big red to be caught another day.
