All is well that ends well. Neither one of them boys will forget that trip for the rest of their lives. That's worth a bunch there. Make sure that he gets that reel cleaned up inside and out. It is easy to put something like that off until too late when you are young and things are happening fast. Glad to hear about the drum but you left out the precise location. Can't figure out that one. Al

You are all right Mike, It sure is a shame that the Haystacks are so far away from you. That is a classic winter spot and I hear that they are still biting there. I can't tell you where Breadman's hole is but it sure is closer than the haystacks.:D Think deep creeks that drain muddy flats that are exposed except at high tide. Couple that with a sunny day and an evening High Tide and the bite should be good on the first part of the ebb. Reds should be there earlier on the late flood. Low water exchange rates are best in these areas.(especially after a string of sunny days.) After cold snaps think the deepest water around. Especially dead end channels that are coming off the ditch. If it is protected from the wind somewhat that is good too. Remember that a trout will eat another trout or mullet or needlefish 1/2 its own length even in the winter. A slow sinking mirrolure isn't a good mouthful for a large trout.
