Default Quick afternoon trip with some variety

I met up with oxbeast late afternoon and decided to try blackwater for a couple hours before sunset. We immediately hooked in to some small trout that kept us occupied but not fed. So we made a run further south where I thought there might be some keepers. When we got there i hooked up and ended up landing a keeper but in the process tangled my other pole. In frustration I broke out my knife and cut both lines and retied. We went around a bend and found trout busting on some mullet. We worked the area and hooked a few more keepers each. We decided to head back since it was getting dark but I wanted to try one more spot. As I approached the spot, my pole gets hammered. After a few minutes, I land a nice slot red. I get to the spot and there is a lot of bait and a pelican feeding and the ocassional thrashing of a predator fish. The three of us starting casting trying to hook up. I drift near the bank and started throwing my x-rap and I get nailed, miss! Crap, I throw again and the fish thrashes next to my yak, another miss. Third time, hook up!!!! I can't believe the fish was still there and wanting to eat. After a few minutes I landed a nice striper. Thanks to Oscar and Chris for listening to my screeches of joy. The striper and red were about 23". The trout we caught were lower slot. What a great evening for a few hours before sunset.
