Finally got to get out Fishin with my dad.

As I have said before, there are lots of Redfish out in the Harbor.  We spent 3 hours fishing the east side, about 3/4 of a mile north of Pirate Harbor, and caught 6 Reds, 3 Snappers, a huge Bonnet Shark, and 3 Snook.  Oh and a couple of Catfish and a Needlefish.  They were small, but not a bad way to spend a few hours.  We caught everything, except the Snook, on live shrimp either using a sinker or under a Poppin Cork.  The Snook was caught on a Storm Twitch.

The Fishing is quite good right now and the weather is perfect. The water is very dark.  The strange thing, and yes there is always something – a Pompano jumped out of the water, 15 feet in front of me just to tease me.  I could almost hear that Pompano blowing raspberries at me.
