we stopped at Jacks and got shrimp .. btw I love Jacks establishment .. it's a manly place for manly men ... we used shrimp and didn't catch a thing with them ... I of course, showed Tuna the way by using the stoopid rig with a gulp stinker. It worked much better than toothpix.

Many thanx to krash for learnin me the ways of stoopid.

While Jimbo was floating and singing koombaya and the rest of you were probably watching left turns all day I showed my apprentice Tuna how to fish ... it was a blast.

Never get out of the boat.

like I always say...let the no nothin catch the first fish....that way..they will want to fish again.   I didnt mean to be so harsh when I told you that the name on the paddles should face up and towards you so you can read them.  I guess he didnt listen to me...example...see picture of UPSIDE DOWN redfish...LOL:p

speaking of upside down .... lol ... don't worry Tuna I won't mention your little mishap.

But we did have a pretty good time. We paddled and fished all the way out past Christian point where we both had sharks swimming around us on the flats. The wind stayed pretty calm until afternoon, even then it wasn't bad. We saw un-countable numbers of fish finning and breaking water and I've never seen so many white / brown pelicans, Ibi , eagles, hawks and this really weird half pink half white platypus billed bird.

We caught this amazing drift in from Christian Point. It enabled us to fish the entire flat from there to well past the marina. That's when we hit the Reds ... during that long drift. It was dead low tide and in some spots it looked as though we were going to ground.

A great day of fishing and a great day of tutoring. I take pride in all my skills .. lol

FH, I forgot to warn ya about the sharks out there, remember the day we were there one tried to rock me out of the boat in that muddy water when I unknowingly paddled over it in like 2' of water, and it spooked and boggied out ot the areabumping the yak in his initial 180 degree turn.

They seem to have learned that fisher-persons release tired fish, and the bull shark have become a bit more aggresive and don't wait for the release. Mang guides don't let their clients put their hands in the water to land or relase a fish...

Wathc them feet's hanging over the side down there.

krash, I remember you talking about the sharks ... I didn't realize they were getting more aggresive ... a belated thanx for the info ..lol.

I don't do any side saddle in what I consider wild areas .. mingo is on that list. Tuna however, he does a lot of it ... you catching this Tuna? Maybe we should ask Mr. and Mrs. Smith along with us next time. Or maybe it's time for me to create the Mingo Pontoon .... hmmm.

Hey? .. when we gonna go again? I like that place.

Never get out of the boat ... I mean it.
