No two trips a dat today as I had a full day with Chris and Albert from Oregon.  They wanted to try a mix of spin and fly fishing and catch whatever species they could.  I had a blast with these two crazies and man Albert was on fire.  We started early and went straight to bonefishing before the boat traffic got too crazy and within minutes Albert was on to the first bonefish of the day.  Dang!  It took a bit more time but eventually Chris got his personal best bonefish with a solid 8 pounder.  From there we hit a wreck but nothing would eat our flies, lures or live shrimp.  Ok fine fish you want to be that way?! 

On to another spot which is a channel I've mentioned before that has been good.  Here the guys had a blast with fish on almost every cast until we were running low on shrimp and I wanted to save at least 6-8 for bonefish in case we needed them.  These guys went through 8 dozen shrimp in short order.  

Moving back to the flats for shark fishing I started pole them around for bonefish catching the end of the tide, my favorite time on this flat.  Just like clock work the bonefish were there and mudding.  Albert was on the bow and didn't see the muds but 5 minutes later another group of bonefish come off the channel mudding on the flats and he makes a perfect cast and drops the fly where I told him.  Strip, strip, "I'm on!".  A long run later the bone broke us off.  The day ended hooking a few sharks before heading back.  What a great day and great guys!
