8/20 Quad Slam

Rocky and I picked up our guys today at 4:00am and headed SSW to a super secret honey hole Captain Lucas turned us on to.  Right off the bat we new we weren’t in Delacroix anymore due to the shark fins breaking the surface at the first spot we stopped at.  As the day progressed it was unlike any other I have had.  It began by walking in ankle deep water stalking small drum with their backs out of the water.  After catching one we decided to go after our targeted species big redfish! We see our first school and blow our shot but on the next school we hook up and of course its the smallest fish in the school but still a good 10-12 lbs.  We continue seeing fish, have a few hook ups and land one more before we decide to focus our attention on the sharks we keep seeing cruising the flats.  We rig up the 12 weight with some heavy leader and a monster fly and go after them.  We get a few big boys to nose it but never got a take on a big one, we did catch a little two footer black tip though.  Finishing the day and our quad slam we throw a shrimp pattern in a deeper hole on the flats and catch a trout just to say we did. Rocky had a pretty incredible day as well. His report is coming soon….
