I finally had a chance to go fishing with my friend Capt. John Rivers on the Mega Bite, and what a trip we had. This was by far the best inshore trip i have ever been on, and he said it was in his Top 3 Ever...

Launched at 17th at 0530 and went to an undisclosed location north of the launch,, fished for about 30 minutes in the dark and didnt even get a hit, so we picked up and went a little further north and east, found a little flat and started throwing a lipless crank bait, and hooked up on the first cast, we ended up catching over 60 trout, 2 reds, tons of lady fish and a hand size jack cravelle, the crazy thing is all the trout except 4 or 5 were over 18 inches, and a bunch were 21, Kept 10 nice ones for the dinner table, Banner trip, thanks Capt. John, made for great thursday..

It was great to get you out on the water, brother! We’ve tried many times, but our schedules just didn’t mesh. Kenny and I were like two kids laughing and hooking fish after fish all morning. It was truly a day to remember with a good friend. I had another trip again this morning; hit a few of the same areas. We didn’t catch 60, but we did catch 30 good trout with lots of small ladyfish mixed in. No redfish today, but that’s ok. Mark was my fishing partner today and he wanted to learn some things about inshore fishing. I’m happy to say that Mark landed his biggest trout ever on my boat-- a whopper 25” stud, estimated weight was around 3.5 - 4 lbs or bettter. It crushed a Paul Brown MirrOlure 8ft off the bow of the boat, we watched it and it was totally awesome.
I’ll try and write up a few reports from time to time over the winter.
Here are a few pics from todays trip

Take care and tight lines.
