OK, so I set the alarm for 5:30am but when it went off there was no moving my fiance for our "guides day off" trip. However, we decided to do an afternoon trip instead and it worked out great. By the time we got to Flamingo, it was windy and the water was dirty but still fishable. She was adamant about using bait while I stuck to lures and the fishing was a bit better than I expected. She got three big snook, two on bait and one on lures and two redfish. I managed about 5 smaller snook on lures. Hence her question "Why is yours so small?"! The bait fishing was a bit tough since the flats were loaded with lemon sharks and they were eating everything they could find so we ended up hooking about a dozen and breaking them off.
I was glad she landed some really nice fish that she refused to take pictures with and we had a great time. Oh, we ended up at home after 9pm!
