Justin and I headed out in the kayaks at the crack of dawn. It was a tad bit eerie getting in the kayaks before the sun came up, but we said we are either going to have a great time or have a great story to tell later on. We paddled 3 miles along the gulf chasing birds and looking for deep holes. The pompano and flounders were not kind to us this morning, but we did catch some nice ladyfish and a couple of crazy looking lizard fish.
The lizard fish are only about a foot long, but they look prehistoricly scary. We kind of joke that they are fish that can kill you 21 different ways with all their venomous teeth, fins, spines, and googly eyes. They may in fact be harmless, but I'm not going to touch one to find out.
So we ended up 3 miles away and the wind and waves kept getting stronger and stronger as the morning progressed. Running on empty, we didnt have enough gas in the tanks to make it back to our place. The kayaks were powered by 280 horsepower super human engines, but they just werent strong enough to make it home! Mommy had to come get us in the van. No pics from this adventure, we left our waterproof camera at home and boy are we mad we did!
Spent the rest of the day swimming and playing. Have lots of pics of this stuff on other peoples cameras that I will post later. I dont have any of that stuff on my camera for some reason. My camera is a special fish camera 2033 dxl limited edition. It only is capable of taking fishing or food related pictures.
We headed back down to Perdido Pass at 4 pm and boy did we have fun! My dad and Mae caught a whole bunch of white trout and Justin caught this enormous bull redfish:
Jim something or other has been fishing his whole life, but hasnt been redfishing much. We showed him the ropes on how to catch pinfish for bait and it wasnt 30 seconds after he chucked his first pinfish out into the current when this mega bull red pounded his bait! Just as we were gaffing the fish, his circle hook was pretty much bent straight!
