Hit the water at 6am (11/18/06)on the out going tide and it was still going out and it's 1pm. I put in from my dock in Bayou Vista and went out into Jones Bay. Fished the oyster beds with no luck. Then headed up a gut and the tails were all over worked my way in, till it was to skinny to float. So, I headed back out real slow got my first hook up and had my drag to tight and you know the rest of the story. rigged back up and through to another tail and bamm another hook up. (Gulp swimming mullet pumpkin w/red jig head)This time I got him to the boat and he'll be my lunch! 23" will post photo at later date (my upload cable is in Austin) Caught and released another 7 reds from 14" to 19.5"
This was the 1st keeper from a Kayak and the first from my new home. Will head back out when the tide comes back in to try for some flounder and trout. It was a awesome morining water was flat and clear to about 24".
The flouder was caught the weekend before and the red was off the dock in the green light.

I remember when I hooked my first RED at SLP and fought that RED for a good 10-15 mins and had him about 20 feet from me when he busted my line. It was a heartbreaker. I finally got my first good RED a couple weeks ago a 22 inch one.............so know how that felt to you.......
Nothing like it! :D

You might want to set your camera for red eye reduction. Hey! nice fish I had only hoped for that size Redfish this past weekend.
