Default Another Redfish Day

<P align=left>Took my wife out mid-morning, it's our 28th Anniversary weekend!

1st stop looked like afishermans camp-out with one tournament boat after another lined up claiming their own dock space, dock after dock!<P align=left>After about 10 minutes,I looked at my wife and said, theres no fish here, let's get outta here, but which way to go?<P align=center><P align=center><P align=left>Southeast Wind, cleaner water, I know just the spot, so off we go!<P align=left><P align=left>I drop the trolling motor at 10:59am, and I am shocked, there are NO Tournament boats....<P align=left>



Within 3 minutes I get a topwater blowup, damn a miss, then another, damn, another miss, on the 3rd miss, I see the red just hang'n under my lure staring at it; I plant my rod and leave the topwater laying dead in the water, I jump off the casting platform and grab a gulp shrimp ona jig......one target shot and BAMMMMM FISH ON! <P align=center>Just under 5lbs!

<P align=center><P align=center><P align=left>We tool around and see some activity in the water, I look down and there goes 5 reds, with 2 studs....I cast ahead of them...BAMMMM FISH ON....What a great time, but while I'm trying to position him formy wife to take a pic this upper slot stud cuts across the power pole, whooosh, he's gone!:reallycrying<P align=left>There must have been30 fish in that school, when that red hit the entire area just boiled up, what a site!!!<P align=left><P align=left><P align=left>OK back to it, following the same methodology, looking for bait and water activity we ended up with 5 reds, mostly 4 to 5+lbs. However while I was having fun with the catch, the fish were wearing down needing extra attention to to be resuscitated.<P align=left>Here' another pretty Blue-Tail Red!<P align=left><P align=left>and another<P align=left><P align=center>SoI put them in REDFISH ICU and revived and released every fish healthy!<P align=center><P align=center><P align=center>The bucket is used to keep the fish upright while water<P align=center>is forced over their mouth and gills!<P align=left>Here's some pics of fish and releases....<P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left>It was great to spend the day with my wife fishing and have some help with the pics, thanks Donna!<P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left><P align=left>
