Ok, you know what they say, "Truth is stranger than fiction."
Game plan was to fish TD Cindy's high tide and to be out of the SaltH2O before 9 am so Rex2 could go to work @ noon.
In the water before daybreak and Rex, II caught the 1st fish - a nice trout. Fish were scattered but reds were running with the trout.
Time to go and I was 1 short of a Trout Limit (5/day) and 1 short of a redfish limit (3/day).
Got to my vehicle and told Rex, II I was gonna make 1 last cast and see if I could get my trout limit today.
BAM .... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ !!!! My reel starts singing !!! The biggest Trout of the day hit my line while I was standing beside my car !!! I put that quality Trout on my stringer and had to retake my fish catch of the day. Didn't mind that at all.
I always say, "Keep a hook in the water ya might catch something."
Those words held true today right in front of my son's eyes, so he learned that lesson 1st hand this morning.
