Default Escambia 8-11

Hit the water early this morning. Only had to make it through one rainstorm and then it lifted for the rest of the day. NJD was using his new Mirrodyne Mirrolure and caught several trout on it including one three pounder. We caught redfish all day in the river, including one that was just over the slot. Many more trout and a few bass. Most of the redfish and bass came on spinnerbaits.

It was not a bad day at all. NJD did me the favor of popping a hook out of my calf. Had a brand new Lucky Craft jerkbait just IMBED a hook into my leg. Man, those hooks are sharp, but did not hurt too bad coming out, I just did not look when he did the "fishing line trick."

Thanks for the report. I can't wait until the striper action picks back up.

Another good outting for you two. I got to fix a problem on my boat blowing a fuze, so I can get out. It is driving me nuts!

Mine had the same problem. There was a short in the wiring harness. Had it fixed under warranty and they never told me exactly where it was.

Nice report. Sorry to hear about the hook. I got one in my foot a few weeks ago. Buried it, had to go to the doc. to get it cut out. Did you keep your slot reds? They sure are tasty blackened.

We fished all over the place and very close to the mouth of the river. We fished the thermal canal, alligator bayou, Saultsman's bayou and a couple of other places. Didn't keep any fish, probably should have.
