Hook Line and EYEBROW???
Today's fishing trip was one for the books... A group of four from Austin, Tx came down for a fishing trip and the weather was great for the most part of the afternoon with a strong in-tide. At the first spot we came to someone was in my favorite spot and sure enough they were catching black drum, red fish, and sheep head while we sat across the way getting a bite here and there and catching a few nice size drum. Once the fish stop biting thanks to the idiot who started his engine and moved backwards just to save his hook from being stuck and then made a circle then re-anchored in the same spot; we went to a spot where i knew we would have good results there. As soon as we stopped and cast one person caught a nice drum and one caught a little crocker and then the craziest thing happened. One guy tried to cast and hooked his partner right above the eyebrow and it was crazy. No one knew exactly what happen till we saw the hook in his face and we all were stunned!!! We rushed to the dredge boat to see the doctor and they didnt have one figure that one out so we rushed back to the house and we got in to my house and i sat him down. Luckily i knew general first aid and some EMS training so i took out the hook cleaned the wound and patched it up. After all the action and calmed down they headed home. They said they had a great time and cant wait to come again and hopefully no accidents lol. I'm glad they had a great time and I hated that we had to cut the trip short. Next time guys we'll make up the lost time.......
Well today turned out to be a beautiful day but the fishing not so great. The water was still brackish and the bait just wasn't moving like the past few days. We went to for great spots but with little results. The first spot gave us our catch of the day and slowed down so we moved further into deeper waters hoping for a better catch. I lost a nice keeper as i was bringing it into the boat the line snapped!!! as we headed back to wards home we tried a great speck spot just at sunset and my cork went down twice but no confirmed catch. the guys caught a few just undersized black drum and few keepers. I had a blast and they enjoyed themselves and want to return again. Let me know when yall are ready i know net time will be more promising lol and thank yall hope you enjoy the fish.
