Apparently the winds before I arrived were hitting pretty hard. When I arrived and launched, the winds stayed at a steady 5 - 6 mph the entire night while we were there. The weather man definitely didn't get the wind forecast right this night. It was predicted to be much higher. I wasn't complaining though. The night air stayed around 68 - 70 degrees making things feel awesome during the night (never to hot or cold and the humidity wasn't bad either). I usually go into a big story but I'll keep this brief. I ended up at the end of the night with 2 reds and a trout. I caught a total of 15 - 20 trout but you know how that goes, only one was of size. I did catch a sand trout as well and a hard head (not sure how that happened, lol). I had another red that let go of the hook. Another red broke the line where I tie my knot from my braid to my flouro leader. In other words, my knot must not have been tied very well therefore costing me a huge fish. Oh well, it happens. I still ended the night with some nice keepers.
The trout was around 17.5", the smaller red at 20.5", and the bigger red was at 27.5". That big red tried to take me to the docks but I managed to keep him away. I have to give that red credit though for the effort. Fun night with my two buddies Yakrunabout and Drifting Yak. Until next time, tight lines!!
PS: The gas prices at Buc-ee's was a nice added bonus.
