Default Catch of the day

So I hit naval live oaks late morning today. Decided to drag the PA down there and try my luck. Wind was low water was clear sky was clear with lots of sunshine. Shaping up to be a great day. I saw a few other kayakers and a couple folks wading. The water was so clear. It was amazing. Started off slow with only a few uncommitted strikes in the deeper water. I cruised down to bob Sykes and around the octagon pier to that grass flat to try my luck. I was standing up looking for reds and I definitely saw a few reds and tried to cast to them but they weren’t interested. I said enough. I tied on a new lure I’ve never used before. A buggs jig. Got a few different ones in the mail about a month ago but haven’t had a chance to use them. So I started my way towards the sand bar and of course I was standing and trying to sight cast when I saw it cruising across the sand bar. About 100-125 yards away. Wind to my back. Quiet. I casted with the wind and of course the Stradic FK sent it like a bullet. It plopped in about 10 ft to the right of the fish in crystal clear water and he wasted no time running it down. He hit that lure like a train. I set the hook and watched. I wish so bad I had a go pro. The fight was awesome to watch. The clear water and right in the middle of a huge sand bar. Time just slowed down and I had more excitement in that moment than I’ve had in a long time. So I took my time getting it to the yak no rush. Landed the fish and measured out at 26.75 in. Took a couple pics and put the fish (nicknamed Dinner) in the fish bag. That was good enough for me. Headed back to the trail and left for home. What a perfect day. Now the fish named Dinner is nestled in snugly on a pile of wild rice lol.
