12/16/18 December Backcountry Florida Keys Fishing

Great day with great return customer Pride and Cile, who also brought along their kids Nick and Abby. We did a two boat trip with Capt. Bill Bassett. Fishing was really good we all wore out the redfish, and a handful of snook in the mix as well. We then stopped on some structure and Nick caught a nice 30 lb cobia! After that we caught a few nice tripletails, including a monster 15 lber for Capt. Bill and Cile! We found a few more redfish, black drum, and trout on some structure along the shore. Then we tried some other gulf stuff without much luck but we did get a few more tripletails out there. Just an all around fun day with great variety and some tablefare. I have Pride and Nick again tomorrow, hopefully fishing is just as good!
