I had the opportunity to fish with Ben this week.  We met around 6 am and were in the water shortly after.

headed to the flats for some trout action and then onto the oyster beds to hunt for big red.

we were throwing mirodine minies, spooky jr, my favored color of 12 fathom paddle tail and slams r.

We ended up with a boat load of trout, a flounder and 5 snook. Largest snook was 28". 

There was a short rain delay, but that gave us time to chat a bit.  

After the rain stopped we fished our way back to the launch.  A great day on the water and an opportunity to get to know one of our members better. What more could you ask for!

Ps. It was a fish and release day.  We returned all the fish to Neptune with the exception of the flounder, who swallowed my jig too far to get back out.
