End-of-year chunky redfish

By Gary Rankel

I had only one strike in 5 hours fishing today, but it turned out to be a really nice redfish.
I enjoyed watching numerous shorebirds during the slow times.

Happy holidays and here’s wishing all Wavewalkers a great time on the water in 2015.

Days like today are why people go fishing

By Gary Rankel

Bob Smaldone and I enjoyed a fantastic day in Ozello.
It started with a glorious sunrise, and continued with several cooperative redfish and seatrout. I even got a snook paddling back to complete my slam.
The sky was overcast keeping things comfortable and there was just a slight ripple on the water which was perfect for our topwater presentations.

Days like today are why people go fishing.

The red that almost got away with the rod, by Gary Rankel

Snowbird Art is back and managed a nice red out of Ozello for dinner tonight. It was his first red since he had gone north for the summer, and he was so excited that his rod fell into the water – no worries as he managed to salvage both the rod and the red.
