Redfish and More

Headed out early on a Windy Sunday morning towards the South Skyway area. We were going to go east towards Joe Island but the wind kept us on the protected west side of the bridge. Even though the wind was whipping we managed to find some great grass on a strong outgoing tide. The sun had just started giving a little light and we started with some top waters but quickly switched to Nuclear Chicken and Natural Gulp shrimp.
The bite was good we were hitting a lot of smaller trout and some to keeper size 18+. Then we hit a grouper nursery wow the little gags were smacking our baits in half. BUT 8 inch grouper need to go grow up a little and we were looking for Big Redfish. After spotting a few large disturbances I casted into a strong down current and jigged slowly back up current. About the second bounce on the bottom and WAM, the redfish I was looking for hit. After landing the 22" (nice slot size) fish we kept working the area and found our other to make the limit. We kept fishing and searching the area. A Small Snook and some puffers rounded out the inshore slam and we headed back in before the Winds pushed us to the gulf. PLUS we had to get back in time to watch the Bucs take care of Carolina. Tight Lines......and GO BUCS!
