Best trout day ever, in Turtle Bay. Used every single piece of 48 shrimp. Limited out on keepers; landed a personal best 20+" trout that had me praying he didn't get off the 1/0 hook, like so many others. He didn't. I won. Thank you, fishing Gods! Amazing how little those 15"ers look next to the behemoth of a 20" trout. Can't wait for my first Gator Trout (over 22").
Got out and wade fished looking for snook, but non found. Released over 30 12-14" trout. Stocked up on big lady fish for my next off shore trip with new friend Mike K on his big new 27' boat with twin 200s. Truly marvelous day on Charlotte Harbor, despite the dangerous run home. Thank God, my flats boat is a Classic Mako. Would not have wanted to try that in most other brands, especially under 17' class. Love my 22 year old classic.
