12/28/18 Christmas Week December Fishing Charter

Lots of fish today for Andy, Zack, and Alec! I just got back in town from spending Christmas with my in-laws. We had to extend our trip so I was back a day late. But the fish were ready and waiting for us. Quite a windy day I guess it’s been cranking since I’d been gone. The boys wanted some dinner so we focused on that. Snappers we’re thick though lots of little guys, though after some moving around and persistence we wound up with some nice keepers. After that we picked a few redfish off a couple spots. As the tide fell we got into a hot trout bite! Lots of trout on artificial which was fun and a handful of nice 18 to 20 inch fish. Later in the day as the tide got closer to bottoming out, we got into the redfish really good! Not quite every cast but every couple minutes we caught one and a few nice size ones as well. After that it was time to head home but an action packed day and plenty of food for the table. Back at it tomorrow looks like the winds will be laying down somewhat so looking forward to that. I have a couple open days on the 30th and 31st, and after New year’s. If you want to get out give me a shout, fishing is still very good!
