September 22 & 24, 2014

Bob Fraser had 2 charters this week.  The first client was from Wisconsin and never fished from a kayak.  Bob took him to his favorite Speckled Trout spot in Gasparilla Sound and he wasn’t disappointed.  He caught about 8 Trout, most of them on a Mirrorlure, a slow sinking twich bait.  He also caught a few snapper as well.  And the surprise of the day, 3 Grouper all caught on a Mirrorlure.  They were 12-15″.

On Wednesday Bob took a guy out from Kentucky.  He was very specific about what he wanted to catch, a Redfish.  He has seen television shows of people catching Redfish and he wanted to experience catching one.  Bob knew where to take him for the best chance of realizing his dream, the lower end of Gasparilla Sound in Placida.  He wasn’t disappointed either, he caught a 5 lb Redfish.  Both mornings were nice weather wise, no rain, even though there was a prediction of 20-30% chance.  Sorry no pictures because the camera wasn’t working.
