First slam of the year – snook, redfish and trout, by Gary Rankel

Just me today but got a nice snook, a couple of redfish and a few small trout, so I got my first “Slam” of the year (the term used around here to describe catching those 3 species in one day). Also, how often do you see herons sitting on top of a tall tree?

    Thanks Gary,

    I’d say that redfish is quite impressive too…

    80F here in Sharon, MA. Finally some warm weather…

    Glad to hear it’s getting warming up there. Ditto for my sister in Green Bay who is getting her Wavewalk unthawed after a cold winter on the beach.

    Well Gary, that may have been a false hope… This morning temps here were below 50F 🙁

    Congrats…you had to wait ’till I was gone to do your thing…we are fighting tornadoes, snow, and cold to get our golf in in the mid-west.

    Good luck getting in the golf, Art. I’ll try to leave a few redfish for you when you return this fall.
