Before anybody tears my head off, we are sorry for the slight hiatus we have been on as of late. We have had a lot of issues to deal with, work, trucks etc. life in general, but the great news is we are back and ready to kick some fish ass! It has been a while so we are ready to tear into the water at full throttle once again! This newest chapter in Team Rebels legacy began yesterday, nothing too exciting, but it was great to be out on the water again!
We loaded up the truck around 9 a.m. to head to one of our favorite places to wade fish, or fish period for that matter, just because of the sheer size and numbers of the fish living on this flat we discovered when we were about 16. I enlisted the help of Meathook to rendevous with Brendon and Taylor to the north to fish the corect tides. We headed North, but not before meeting opposition from multiple severe thunderstorms on the way up. We reached the flat by noon time and began wading to net some bait............Then we swam across a channel to net some bait................then we swam across another channel to net some bait..........and before we knew it we were almost a mile from the flat and bait was no where to be found. Thus presenting a large problem to overcome.
We walked for a few hours, to find nothing but some serious gashes on the bottom of our feet and a sunburn to match. The fish were stock piled on our flat and we ended up with only two baits to fish with. I took the 12inch mullet and tossed it to the edge of the flat and fed it a little bit on line as it tried to head up current of the tide, a giant boil soon engulfed the spot where the mullet previously was located and a thump on the line was unmistakeable. After a few brutal headshakes and a couple of close calls I was able to land this stout snook onto the flat. Not by any stretch the biggest we have captured here but nice to feel a stout fish again for the first time in a little while. The other bait we had Meathook fished it, within a minute or two he got blasted and set-up a little too early and pulled the bait out of the Snooks mouth. All in all not to bad of a day, looking forward to heading back with more bait!!
Until Next time....
Team Rebel out!!!
