 I had a day off today but got a call from my friend Mike asking if I wanted to fish Flamingo this morning.  I was on the fence since I wanted a couple of days off but I couldn't say no.  Meeting at 7am and driving down together we launched by 8am and we were off to the races.  What a difference from Friday, no high winds and no dirty water but we still had a huge incoming tide and tons of water on the flats.  Well, we fished one spot and that is all we needed.  We fished less than three hours and in that time caught redfish, lost a nice tarpon and released over 25 snook!  Once the tide slackened, things cooled off and we headed home.  What a morning!  There were times our lures would get hit multiple times without a hookup and the next cast yielded a solid hook up, and at one point I made three casts and caught two snook while missing the bite on the third cast.  Yes, it was epic, yes it was awesome and yes, I want to do it again!
