My sister joined us for the morning and we both setup to drift with topwaters; Spectrum Spook Jr for me and Electric Blue Hunchback for her. My sister caught her first red of the day on a hunchback on overcast skies.
Whit, as he does most trips, went on a hunting mission for fish and left the flat the rest of us were on. When the clouds broke around 11 am my sister and I really started to get on the fish. Here she is with her first slot red from her kayak.
I managed to land some fish on topwater, including a keeper red. When the topwater bite started to die off I switched the the grasswalker and strung up 3 trout. Whit finished with a solid trout and red for him. William and my sister each had a slot red.
We got off the water early afternoon and headed back to the cabin. That evening we were joined by my cousin and his girlfriend along with our coastal family's son and his wife. We had a big shrimp boil with Cuban cigars and rum for dessert.
