Caught lots of small fish, but also plenty in the 18-22" slot. Fish hit aggressively early, then the bite on artificials tapered off

Just wish it had been a keeper, he was ready to eat some fried trout. He may forget today but I never will.
Thank the LORD for days like today. Some say it was a master card day (priceless).
On the way home he wanted to know what time we were going to be home he wanted to hit some

They hit 30 mins before high tide and 30 mins after. Most were caught behind outer bar, however a few were just off the beach in the drop off. Kids had as much fun as I did and that was worth it. They were all released for another time.

I had purchased a new Wilderness Systems ATAK 120 on Friday so I'm really looking forward to hitting the water. When we got there I realized I had forgot my paddle. Man I was bummed. On the way home
