Default Mixed Bag: 3/6/2012

Decided to try somewhere brackish I haven't spent much time, just to try something new this afternoon. Fished a few hours of daylight plus about 30min after dark with the moon so bright.



Got 4 of these silly little green fish. 3 during the day, one after dark.


Was push-poling around in a foot of water when I came across a big, dark, gnarly tail sticking out of the water. Thought it was a big black drum and threw on him. After a 20minute sleigh ride I found out I was mistaken.






3ft long and 30lbs according to the boga grip! Not a man-eater but close enough to a river monster for me!


Accidentally snatched a 3ft spotted gar in the tail. Oops, sorry buddy!


Finally a redfish SMALL enough to eat!!! I'd forgotten they made em this small!

So what did the carp hit? Or did he get snatched too?

Yup, snatched him in the side of the head!

It's my girlfriend's. Her dad got it for her for Christmas. It's a nice little combo and she was nice enough to let me borrow it. My medium/light cumara is out of commission so I needed a sub. It has a broken reel-seat and I have to wait till Hot Spots gets more in stock to warranty it.
