Let my buddy's son haul in this one. 8yrs old, working a 12' rod. Begged us to take it from him but he got it in. Great job William! 44" from the 2nd gut.

      @rogerdale257 sorry man AT&T tower was down we had ZERO service on the peninsula today. Water this AM was great. Glassy. Just closed the shop so not sure now. ...more Sorry again good luck tonight!
    2. Roger Connolly
      Thank you, sir.
    3. Gabe Mitchell
      @rogerdale257 I'd take my chances in the surf. Maybe hit bolivar or west beach. SanLouis Pass should have fish.
    4. Gabe Mitchell
      @GunnerNewberry how's the weed on bolivar? @rogerdale257
    5. Gabe Mitchell
      @GunnerNewberry how's
    6. Roger Connolly
      I have a programmer so if I hit it fast enough I can usually get through, lol. No, just a 2wd truck.
    7. Gabe Mitchell
      @rogerdale257 do you have a 4wd?
    8. Roger Connolly
      If I wanted to go fishing tonight for some trout or reds, where do you recommend?
    9. Gabe Mitchell
      Been too busy with work and kids. Soon!
    10. Gabe Mitchell
      @rogerdale257 haha,
    11. Roger Connolly
      I've been waiting very patiently for YOU to post something about it, haha. Yeah, I saw @Chuck 's post today, nice reds.
    12. Gabe Mitchell
      @rogerdale257 no problem, we all learned from someone. I'm been saying this for a while, but if we can find time, we want to have a FS surf fishing event this ...more summer. @Chuck is the surf master.
    13. Roger Connolly
      Thanks a lot, man.
    14. Roger Connolly
      Lol, I gotcha. I've never fished in the surf and I want to get out there and try.
    15. Gabe Mitchell
      It's pretty fun/challenging sometimes
    16. Gabe Mitchell
      @rogerdale257 well, that can work. Usually you wait to you see signs of them, like one will jump. Polarized glasses help you see them 6" underwater. ...more You'll see ripples from the school.
    17. Roger Connolly
      Just start throwing the net out in knee deep water?
    18. Gabe Mitchell
      Check out our YouTube video for how we hook them. Fishingscoutvideos @rogerdale257
    19. Gabe Mitchell
      @rogerdale257 I'll catch most in the surf with a cast net. But most bait stores have them you can by fresh dead or frozen. Both halves work.
    20. Roger Connolly
      Might sound dumb, but where do you get your mullets? And do you just cut their heads off and hook them and throw the rest out?
    21. Gabe Mitchell
      @AliFish10 thanks, for three years in a row we've been able to catch one "as big as you are". Going to take a 50"er next year!
    22. AliFish10
