I had Alec on board today and he is a long time client and friend who told me "You decide what we are fishing for."  Great!  First stop was snook, drew a blank but loaded up on live pilchards.  Then we hit a channel and live chummed the daylights with the live pilchards and had huge mutton snappers going crazy destroying the baits.  I told Alec to wait to see them exploding, then cast his live bait into them.  When he would he was on within seconds landing 2 solid muttons in the 15-12lb range, losing another solid fish and landing a few other small ones.  Once that was over with we hit a creek for snook and lost two snook.  Ouch.  We wrapped up the day by hooking 6 bonefish and landing 5.  Dang this was a good day!!!!
