In my lateest outing, I was able to go out and do some night fishing... It was slow but it paid off... I went in search of a slot snook last night, I ended up with a ladyfish, a trout, and the story below will round it out: We arrived at the docks after getting tons of small bait at around 8PM; there were TONS of shadows, some VERY large and WELL over slot... I guess they didnt get to be that big by being stupid... :laugh: Anyway the night started off with a bang... I caught a trout the very first cast with a live shrimp pitching it to some shadows cruising the edge of the lights... I also missed a few smaller hookups which I believed to be ladyfish because they never seemed to grab my fluke... Then it happened... I was pitching live baits in and amongst the snooks with no takers when I told my friend my trusty fluke would catch one, you just watch... About five casts later... WHAMO... FISH ON!! She put up a decent fight, she ran straight for the barnacle encrusted piling, when she pulled, I pulled back, and my little Abu Garcia Revo-S put a whooping on this fish: She was between 26.6 and 27 inches... the picture shows 26 (66 cm for you metric folks) but if you notice I was still trying to take the hook out of her mouth, and when I pushed her down and back... without the tail pinched she was 26 inches CHEERS!
