SLOT REDS ..LIMIT in 12 min...

Postby specialk » Thu Dec 10, 2015 8:49 am

So my wife and I wanted to go to Florida, to do some fishing...I worked a 12hr shift ..went home slept for 4hrs and drove to Mosquito Lagoon...just a 7hr ride... launched boat... rode threw the Haulover Canal, across the Lagoon to one of my favorite spots and started polling the Flats Flyer ... there were fish all around us ... I could see from my nice high platform ... told my wife to cast about 11 o'clock off the bow and BAMM... first fish on... came off the platform landed her fish took a picture ... and back up to the platform... it was a little windy so it took a minute to get back on course .. gave the wife insight, were to cast... Bam another nice RED FISH ...so back off platform landed her fish took a picture.....THEN IT HIT ME... We just hit our limit and I have not even got to cast yet...I did catch a few nice reds, and released them all but the two my wife caught.. we had 3 more days of the same... the wind did keep us off the Lagoon 1 day and we just fished the Haulover Canal ... looking forward to our next trip..

Fish NEVER bite when I'm around. So, I will just come right down there and put a STOP to that!! :lol:

On a boat you built with rods wrapped by your wife. I could go on... gotta love it ... way to go

Way to go Kelly! But I guess we know who the fisherman, or should I say fisherwoman, is!

Can't wait to get mine built and into some skinny water. So what were they biting on? Heard shrimp and mullet are working good.
Happy Boating,
Tracy

Carl... you will be on the water soon... hang in there...

Tracy... we had some shrimp on the last two days...but caught more on my friend bait from Edgewater... www.grandslambaits.com

That is some good eating there, for sure. !!!
I live in an area where the reds are everywhere except where I am at the moment, I can't get them.
I am going to put a GoPro on a rod reel mount, and then ,,,,,,,,one of these days,,,,,,,Im gonna get a good video.

Nice catch. Nothing better that catching fish on a boat you built.

Thanks everyone... I love fishing and I think my wife started so we can spend more time together ...the thing that I am having the most trouble with... is wrapping my mind around the fact that I BUILT THIS BOAT...it is a joy to be in.. fishing the flats, in Florida or fishing a lake in the Carolina's...the performance of the boat is fabulous.. a friend of mine in Florida has bought a 40K boat.. all the bells and whistle's a shallow water boat can have...My Flats Flyer is a much better ride with half the motor.. and I have less than half of his draft... I am so ready to build another one...... which one is next....?
