Default May 12th through May 20th fishing reports

JD and brother Joe wanted to do some saltwater fishing. They had never caught any saltwater fish so we hit the grassbeds...only problem the temperature had dropped 10 degrees during the night.

No action at all on the flats so we went deep and fished some docks. It did not take long and Joe had the first of 6 redfish for the day.



We ended up with a stringer of...

6 redfish

2 specks

6 bluefish

Now it is the 17th of May...Outcast Inshore Slam...i meet with Mike, "Dog" and Hank at the waffle house...



We then check in with Team Outcast...



of course we chat with all the anglers lying to each other at where we are going to fish...







We fished very hard and caught plenty of specks and flounder. our only redfish was a 30 inch fish caught in the pass.

We decided to be first in line at the scales...



we had a nice 3.1lb flounder that we hoped would be in the top three but ended up placing 4th. We did finish 2nd in the calcutta giving us $480!

We are glad to be back after a long day of fishing...



Here is our stringer of fish that we kept for eating...



Oh it is hard to wake up on the 18th and go back at it but the good wife i have she encourages me to go!

Jordan wants his dad to catch a gator trout for his birthday. we work the flats with some shallow minnow mirrolures and given plenty of specks. Dad with one of several nice specks over 20 inches...



Jordan caught his share as well...just not as big!



now we are at present day. i have matt and chris on board and they are ready for some action. wind started off at 10 mph and chris took advantage and boated this nice speck...



the wind picks up and we find a nice shallow bar with plenty of bluefish and ladyfish hungry to bite! After boating a dozen plus we decide to fight the west wind and work our way to the pass. an hour goes by and we have not had any bites. Sooo i head to a very discreet location and quickly Matt has a tournament red on...



matt releases red to fight another day. i tell chris...who wants the biggest fish of the day...he can make one more cast...BAM last cast and he is on...



Now that is a stud at 21lbs!!!

What a day in 20 mph west winds!

tight lines!
