John Dear and Ann Strickland were my clients and with the holiday crowds in the bay systems, I took advantage of the almost flat Gulf and we busted the POC Jetties at daylight on the morning of the 4th of July.
We ran east for about 15 miles and anchored up on one of the spots that I frequent when the gulf allows us to get out of the bay systems.
We were soaking croakers and they didn't soak long before they became breakfast for the 18" to 24" trout.
We had a great morning with our limits of really great fighting speckled trout. The Kistler rods were really awesome in handling these huge trout.
