Hit the water around 9 AM from Sunset Beach ramp. Ran to the Jetties and headed to Jim Caudle, North wind so the seas were a bit confused (Choppy) the further we got from shore. Drift fished for about 45 minutes with 2- 3 foot shark hook-ups and a few baby Sea Bass. Ran back in to just outside the Jetties and trolled some Pink and Green Clarke spoons for Spanish. Pink was the hot color and we had 8 in the boat in about an hour with only 4 keepers, the largest was a fat 19 inches. The mullet were jumping in huge schools everywhere so we anchored up by the north side at the end of the out going tide. We threw mullet, squid with no results. Most of the people around use were using live mullet or mud minnows with no luck. We cut a frozen blue we had brought with us and dropped 2 lines in. Wham off one went ...... Huge Red Drum, smart too, went around the prop so fast we could not stop him. Cut line. Seconds later Wham rod #2 went off and my wife hung on ...... under the boat he went as I raised the engine out of the water. She played him like a true fisher person, adjusting the drag as needed. Her first Red and she was not going to lose him. 20 minutes later he was in the net and being measured while she literally hugged him lol. 25-1/2". Good thing he was a slot because she would not have been fit to live with if he had to go back. The water temp had dropped to 81 from 84 2 days previously so the fishing is getting better with the cooler temps. coming. The people around us changed baits in a hurry lol. He was very tasty. Get out there and fish .... getting better everyday.
