  1. Details: Inshore Slam (trout/flounder/redfish)

    Well after fighting the rain in old river. @ReelGame managed a nice 25" red. We're fishing under bridge since it was rainy. Had one fish take my fishing ...more pole in the water luckily Benny was able to snag it. Made a move to the the cooling plant but before we got there hit up mouth of the canal where it meets trinity bay and man did we find the trout! Caught about 40 trout with only two keepers. DSA!

  2. Details: Sheepshead

    Fishing with my buddy @fishhook21 managed some sheeps with the red being the closer! Not bad for about an hr and a half of fishin! Fishing live shrimp on popping ...more cork on top of oyster and clam beds. Would pop it let it drift pop it let it drift. Were hitting right after pops. Lost many to lack of hook setting all in all a good day! Shout out to awesome bait shop Lazy Pelican! Always good shrimp!
