April Fools' Weekend Wrap-Up

  I've been a little busy so I figured I'd do a quick wrap up on this past weekend’s kayak fishing charters. High winds and rain didn't stop my guys from getting out for a wonderful experience fishing the flats of Tampa Bay.

 I had Christopher W. and his girlfriend from Corpus Christi, TX. out for some deep water bridge action. The tide was incoming all day with North winds at 20 mph. Chris had a lot of fun catching his first of many Snook and a nice Black Drum, Sheepshead and Mangrove Snapper.

 The bite was good most of the trip on the outgoing tide then completely shut down just after the shift. Perfect timing as the day was just about over but not before the happy couple bagged a nice Drum dinner!

 Jamey W.'s trip was a little different. We fished the flats near Ft. Desoto targeting Redfish and Trout. The water temps had dropped considerably over night from the cold front and made the day a little tough. Tons of Redfish and Trout flooded the grass flats but seemed to have a serious case of lockjaw.

 Throughout the day, Jamey got lots of strikes and a couple Redfish with this one being his first one ever while plugging a Dawgwalker by Unfair Lures. The Trout were a little shy though and not eating at all except for a short strike or 2 and a fish that spit the hook last minute! 

 Great job to both Jamey and Christopher and congrats on their first Snook and Redfish! I'm totally sure I will see them again on the water again!
