My second trip was a late afternoon trip and it started out a little wet. We had two big storms sitting right on top of us, so we had to take a small break from fishing until it was well past us. I'm all for fishing in a little rain, but lightning, fishing poles, and an aluminum tower don't make a good combination. So, as we watched the storm head offshore we slowly made our way back to the pass. The bite was pretty good, and we hooked a few nice reds, but we lost a few to hook pulls. We managed to get one nice keeper in the ice chest, but the prize of the day was a big bull at 41 inches. After the red bite slowed down in the pass, we made our way over to the shoals for some fun light-tackle ladyfish. These guys (or are they all gals?) look just like baby tarpon and they have the same spunk a big tarpon has. With every cast we hooked a fish; they averaged 2 -3 lbs apiece with a few even topping the scales at 4 -5 lbs. Ladyfish are tremendous jumpers, and they are sure to bring a smile to any angler's face with their powerful aerial acrobatics.
