NICE DAY ON THE WATER
Yesterday I had the pleasure of guiding good friend and customer Mr Butch Syrdal, his son Scott, son in law Jamie, and granddaughters Emma and Katie. This was the first official fishing trip for the girls but it was obvious that they had been practicing their fishing skills. We got lucky early and found a good school of reds that were hungry and eating the fresh shrimp under popping corks. The girls were boating fish left and right and did a great job handling the hard fighting reds. They didn’t quit until number 25 was resting in the cooler. Two nice puppy drum and 2 sheepshead joined the party as well, falling for the shrimp.
We then focused on trout, trying different areas with Ghost minnows and H&H chartreuse beetles under the corks instead of shrimp. It was slow for us as the trout were not bunched up although things looked right to catch a bunch. We put 18 keeper trout on ice before calling it a day with the box pretty much full.
Many thanks to Mr Butch, Scott, Jamie, Emma, and Katie for a great day on the water spent with good friends. I look forward to the next trip with this gang!
