WELL AFTER CHECKIN THE CREEK OUT OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS AND SEEING BAIT AROUND IN THE SIDE CHANNELS I DECIDED TODAY TO GO GIVE MY BAD HABIT A CURE.

CAUGHT A FEW GOOD SIZE FINGER MULLETS AND WENT TO A GOOD OLE HOLE THAT HAS ALWAYS HELD DRUM THRU OUT THE YEAR AND HAS ALL BUT ONCE IN THE LAST 3 YEARS LET ME DOWN,THE TIDE WAS GOING OUT WHEN I FIRST GOT THERE AND THE WIND WAS ROUGH.

WATER WAS ALL MUDDIED UP AND I FIGURED WHAT THE HECK IF I CAN CATCH A FEW NULLET ILL TRY TO SEE IF HONEY IS HOME,GOT WHAT I WAS AFTER AND HEADED TO THE HOLE,SET UP 2 RODS WITH A CAROLINA RIG AND FRESH SWIMMING MULLET AND TOSSED THEM OUT,WAS GETTING READY TO START TOSSIN A CHUG BUG WHEN I SEE THE FIRST ROD BOUNCE THEN BEND OVER ALMOST TOUCHING THE WATER FROM ITS HOLDER


REACHED THE ROD AND PULLED..................YEP YOU GUESSED IT I MISSED THE FISH,YA CANT PULL A CIRCLE HOOK
STARTED TO RE-BAIT WHEN THE OTHER ROD SLAMS DOWN AND STARTS TO TAKE SOME DRAG,NOT MUCH BUT ENOUGH TO GET MY FIX


FINALLY AFTER 10 MINUTES THIS NICE FAT FOOTBALL RED IS IN THE BOAT FOR A PIC AND RELEASE............




REBAIT THE LINE AGAIN AND TOSS IT BACK OUT WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE OTHER ROD HEADS SOUTH AT A SPEEDING PACE BENDING THE ROD DOWNWARD TOWARDS THE WATER..........GRAB IT AND START FIGHTING THIS MAD FISH,BETTER ONE THAN THE FIRST ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ GOES MY DRAG AS IT BEGS FOR MERCY I GAIN A FEW YARDS AND LOOSE 2 TIMES BACK TO THE FISH,HARD FIGHTING GREAT PULLING MEAN NASTY RED FINALLY ITS IN THE NET AND IS 25 1\2 INCHES LONG....................



WIND IS GETTING WORST SO I PULL ALONG SIDE AN ISLAND AND CAST DOWN TOWARDS THE OPEN POOL IM FISHING AND IT DOESNT TAKE LONG FOR THE TAP PULL TAP PULL OF A TELL TAIL FLOUNDER
COULD IT BE THE FIRST SLAM OF THE YEAR WORKING IT'S WAY TO ME? YA NEVER KNOW TILL ITS ALL DONE AND SAID
THIS FLOUNDER WASNT A GREAT BIG ONE BUT IT DID PUT UP A GREAT SHOW FLYING OUT OF THE WATER LIKE A DEMONIZED STINGRAY BUT AT LAST I WOULD WIN THIS BATTLE TOO AND NET THIS 16 INCH MEAN MACHINE




AFTER THIS FISH I WAS ALL BUT DONE FISHING BUT THE WIND AND THE LOW TIDE HAD OTHER PLANS AND I CALLED IT A DAY SO I COULD GET HOME AND TAKE CARE OF MY WINTER LONG ADDICTION NEEDING SOME FRESH DRUM AND FLOUNDER.


WELL THATS ALL FOR NOW JUST THOUGHT ID CHECK IN AND GIVE YA'LL SOMETHING TO DREAM ABOUT

TIGHT LINES AND SCREAMIN DRAGS TO YOU ALL MOST OF ALL BE SAFE OUT THERE

10-4 Tim, good deal on the drum man.....gotta love when they hit, no doubt what is on the line and it ain't play time....

Glad you finally got out and had enough water in the creek to float ya around and enough for the drum to come on in.

I do believe I know whick Honey hole you was at, but I'll not tell.

Dennis do you see what Tim has done, now he has started something.

Now all you need is Ned to pull a few in like that and he'll be set.

tight lines <*)))))>{
