Default 11/5 (Lengthy)

10 MPH winds from the SE was a sure sign that the sound would be a little choppy. Tide started to rise and I paddled straight out so I could drift over an area I usually don't fish. I didn't catch anything but it looks very promising.

I eventually paddled into a little sheltered area and picked up a trout. Just a little short so back she went.

I paddled out and drifted over a flat. Shortly into the drift I caught one very strong 18.5" Red. She sure didn't think she was tiny and did not want to come to the boat. 11/5 (Lengthy)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415227213-142036-jpg

I had to paddle out and reposition to drift over a different spot after slipping the Red on the stringer. I then caught a 15.5" Trout shortly after and slipped her on the stringer. 11/5 (Lengthy)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415227345-816832-jpg

Alright, this is where it gets good...

The catch of the day was....my stringer!

I looked down and my stringer was gone! I started looking around and I saw a blue line coming from under the kayak. Somehow a loop in the stringer wrapped around my anchor right after it came unhooked from the side of the kayak. I crawled over my seat to reach for the anchor. (The Jackson BigRig has a sweet anchor system). I am now laying on my kayak feet in the air and arms stretched out. I see its caught pretty good so I reach for my phone. This had to be documented! 11/5 (Lengthy)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415227745-333977-jpg

Unbelievable!!! I was blown all the way to shore trying to rescue my fish.

Now, I always wear my GoPro remote around my neck to take pictures. Somehow in all of the chaos a button was pushed and I was captured in the act. 11/5 (Lengthy)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415227886-981938-jpg

Too funny! I didn't see this until after I cleaned the fish and downloaded the photos.

Alright, back to fishing. I took the time at shore to get things settled and paddled back out for one final drift. I drifted casting my swimbait and WHACK! Fish on. This Red hit 15' from the boat, half way out of the water, and headed south. She eventually tired and I netted her quickly. She measured 23" and was a great ending to a windy day. 11/5 (Lengthy)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1415228155-020386-jpg

Hope you enjoyed.

All fish were caught on a soft plastic swim bait in the sound.

Wow. Great story thanks for sharing. That sounds like something that would happen to me. I remember coming back across Perdido Bay from the Perdido River to Herron Bayou and my live well pump had failed so I was using a stringer tied off to the side of the bass boat. Well I forgot to bring the stringer in before I took off and by the time I remembered there wasn’t a whole lot left to bring in.
