Default Shot in the dark pays off, REDS!

So me and Chuck start of the day fishing the bay just east of NAS at a big hole thats visible from google maps and come up with nothing. We move up to the pass between the bay and Bayou Grande and Chuck catches one blue fish. We pack it in and head up to Pensacola Kayak and Sail for some supplies. On the way back we decide to put in at Ski Beach and go west on Bayou Grande just to goof off and HOLY FISH I hook a 32" red trolling a red, Red Fish Magic (this would be a first for me using the so called magic). Fight him, get him in, un hook, snap shot, back in the water and out for more withing ten or so minutes HOLY FISH I hook a 36" and I'm off on a nantucket sleigh ride for the next thirty minutes. Who knew I thought all the big bulls were out in the bay. In the way back Chuck gets a fiesty 18" spec. So I guess technically he wins because he went home with something. I told him there was no garentee that they woulf be back tomorrow but I can garentee I'll be back all day.

OH yeah one last thing, I can't find the thread discussing YoZuri lures but Walmart has that crazy shrimp contraption for $13 and plenty of them.

It was indeed a gorgeous day and I will be back out tomorrow hoping, no begging, no praying for a repeat.

No need to start a new thread for "nothing new to report" but, spent the whole day on that same spot the spot to the east and west of it, all day and come up completly empty handed. Chuck laid into a couple of rat Specs and the one slot that got away.

i bought and used one of the yozuri shrimp, used it off the jetties at the state park and only caught some blues. i think it would have worked better but the currant was strong. kind of a slow sinking lure but i think i'll have better luck in a lighter currant
