    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... :rolleyes:

    :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:

    [​IMG]
    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!

    :cool:

    Self appointed maybe so... I dont see anyone else posting all the fishes I do...

    :laugh:

    As for the IMG tags... I just copied the IMG tags from photobucket vs clicking the icon thinking it would work... I DID fix it...

    :)

    Good one Mike.



    I am going next week to the mountains for the yearly guy trip and hoping to land a big one like Rod did last year.

    Hey Mike, nice catch. Maybe we'll see you on Bass Master one day.

    That takes WAY too much time and $$$ which I have neither of...

    It is more likely that I end up posting a top 10 finish at a major fishing event however... I have all the tools to do it... I begin competing in sanctioned competitions next year... :eek:

    We will see how it goes... I would LOVE to fish for a living even if it was just as a guide...

    Mike A!

    Best of luck. I imagine you are one heck of a cook, too.

    He was making fun of me. I typed something else instead of "cook". Whoops.
