Today I fished with Derek Redwine from BoldWater and Sam Root from Saltyshores. We were suppose to make a trip of it yesterday but the passing of hurricane Ida did not allow it. Today I’m afraid was not much better with winds in excess of 25 miles per hour. We fished in the IPB which did remarkably well in the gail force winds a bit wet but to be expected in these conditions. It took us awhile to find some fish do to the fact the water was so dirty and the wind kept everything stirred up. We managed quite a few redfish and even a few unexpected events. Derek caught a redfish literally under the bow of the boat after thinking the red had refused his first offering. Later Sam throwing his new Loop Opti 9 wt. caught a nice double header with Derek. I played assist on a couple multiple hooks ups today as well. All and all we had a great trip looking forward to another one tomorrow.
