Default Afternoon Flats! 4-22-09

Wade and I hit some sound flats at around 4:45 in hopes of landing some reds. After about 45min, I get a nice pop on the skitterwalk.I could ofsworn this was a small speck as I was skipping him across the water.But he saw the boat and took line. Redfish number 1.

Small but still fun





Wade then hooks up to a speck



A little after that, my lure gets hit hard and I have another one!



Then at the end of the day, I finally get the one I was lookin for.



I guess Wade was having anoff day. He missed two big bulls, caught a couple specks, and got this little guy. Offshore anyone?



Came in close to 7pm



Total: 4 reds, about 5 specks, and a ballyhoo (All Released)

Nice work guys....I fished from 7:30 am till 4:45 with one red to show for it. Iguess I should have toughed it out a little longer....

I have never seen a Ballyhoo in the Sound...Thats crazy!!

That ballyhoo catch was strange. I haven't ever seen them in the sound either. He must have not seen the topwater coming at him and didn't get out of the way!

They go all over pretty much,I caught them under the navarre bridge lights(night)with a dip net years ago. You may mistake them for small needlefish and see them more than you think.

sounds like you guys had fun, and nice catch as well. i went out today with my new boat and managed to cast net a few bull minnows, then didn't even bother putting them on a line. ended up letting them go at the ramp- i was going to give them to some fishermen at galvez, but they had plenty of bait. my girlfriend and i had a great time in the new boat. she got some driving lessons and we saw a sting ray and plenty of boats, birds, etc. we fired up the grill and had some tasty burgers while watching the kayak fishermen. also found some pretty cool clam shells- big old suckers that were opened up like they do- looked like butterflies.
