3Hr Afternoon Trip with Tony Fincher (of King Fish Team "Open Wide"). We went a chasin some white water reds... and man did we get into the Reds today.

We worked school after school with the trolling motor and managed over 40 reds from 23 to 27in. along with 2 flounder 14.5 and 16in. and a 2.5lb speckled trout.

Sorry for the long lapse in reports but we have been very busy with the tournaments. The fall King bite has been strong with many fish coming off the beach. The fish are getting spunky with the temp drops. Fish skying on baits and making long runs are the norm. Here are some pics to wet your appetite.
