Had Mark. Mike , and Shawn on board yesterday great group and lot's of fun. Started out in what looked like to be calm conditions but somebody kicked on the fan and the east wind was pumping like it has been the last few days. We headed to the edges of the outer bays and used the land to our advantage breaking the wind. Got right on some nice trout at our second stop throwing plastics a dozen in the box and we had to move on. That was the pattern for the day keep moving and building a box and throw live shrimp and plastic under corks. The trout were mixed in size but mostly keeper fish. With a box looking good we turned to MR REDFISH for some line stretching action. First pond and Mike was hooked up and the drag screaming. We worked this pond with Mark, Mike ,and Shawn each getting a bull red and several reds just undersize. Perfect way to end the day.
