Cloudy start today. Swells countered by light WSW wind. Low tide around 7am. I was not expecting much but was surprised by all the activity. Lost a very nice Snook using 20 lb fluorocarbon bite tippet. I was thinking the water was shallow and very clear so kept using 20 lb. I was wrong again. Had to rig another fly on 30#. Moments later was surprised by this not so small Jack.

Nice!

Chumming them to the surface or throwing a sinking line in shallower water?
Fish were following up the ones being caught off the bottom, then we would throw a couple baits in the water to keep them there long enough to present the fly . My buddy made the fly with some nice lead eyes so it sank down about 10 feet. Fun times🤙🤙

Hope you guys will forgive me, but I took my 9 year old daughter fishing for her Birthday with my good, Freddie Lynch. I usually Flyfish, but I wanted her to be able to catch fish so I was using a bait caster and she was using a spinning rod.
