Default Gulf of Mexico, NWF

When out today with Dean and all I can say is stunning. What a day to be on the water. Lots of bait in close, Cigs, Herring, pinfish loaded the tube and went in search of a new spot.

But before that I wanted to share why I love this sport.... You can not really put in words the feeling of being 24" off the water, alone, no engine noise and this happens -- again.

Found some good looking marks and started catching snapper - total for the day was about 14 to the yak. Got rocked twice as I was try for grouper (Good Job yesterday JD) and had a heck of a time getting through the reds.

Biggest of the day a 31" (ok I pinched the tail )

Brought 4 sharks to the yak and fought back 3 of my hooks!! and a 29" Cobia. 4 kings and a spanish. In by 1230 and then swam 2 laps around Navarre "Snokilicious reef" for the rest of my workout. OBTW did find 2 new spots and that brings the total fishing spots off NWF within Yak range to just over 119.

Yes, we are all jealous... Good chatting with ya following the "Run for the Reef" at the Pier Bar. I plan to take you up on your offer of "guide services" in the deep water as soon as I get the confidence on the yak soundside... tell then, keep the great reports coming.

The grouper are tough in a yak, you just cant get any leverage and they get back to their holes in no time.

About how many miles do you think you put in a day?

Oh and I have to ask, where the heck are you in the pic of the snapper? Sitting side saddle?
