Jim and his son in law Arturo were scheduled to fish with me yesterday but we had some nasty weather all day yesterday so we rescheduled for today.  That was a smart move as the day was gorgeous today.  The fishing, well that was a different story.  We started off fishing for snook, a slight detour from the intended target of bonefish, since it was tough to pass up snook crushing schools of mullet all around us.  We threw lures and live mullet and couldn't buy a bite.  Many times with so much bait around it's tough to have locate your one offering in the middle of thousands of other baits.  Ok, no worries we move on to bonefish where it was also pretty slow but eventually we found some fish and Jim hooked up only to lose the bonefish at the boat.  A while later Arturo also hooks up and the fish also comes off near the boat.  This is getting frustrating!  Ok, new spot and we draw a zero.  Last spot and Arturo quickly hooks two fish and they both come off next to the boat plus he got a couple of bites that never got hooked.  Dang it!  Well, with minutes left before we head in Jim hooks up and lands his first bonefish for his birthday.  Whew!  A bit later we called it a day going 1 for 5 on bonefish.  It was a tough day but I'm not complaining!
