Team Jeansonne this morning consisted of my son Stephen and myself launching from Sweetwater. We stumbled into Black Bay being greeted with 2-3 ft seas (NOT what was forecasted), party cloudy skies & ~5-7 SE winds. The 100 live croakers in the baitwell made the trip just fine.We saw only one boat in Black Bay/Breton Sound this trip. Heading southeast for another 25 minutes past Stone Island, we set down at a favorite spot where we dropped the anchor at 6:41 a.m.

At 7:41 a.m. we picked up with 50 nice trout & one red. Trout were 16-21 inches . And we left with 100 live croakers. ALL fish were on plastic paddle baits in white/chartreuse tail or avocado/red glitter paddle baits . Hate it when they do that. What do you do w/100 live croakers? We gave them to 3 guys back on high ground just launching.

Great day to be on the water as by 8:00 winds were dead and water was slick.

Making Memories with my son that we will both remember for years. He says he caught more & bigger than me, and we all know how that goes. Great day.

Thanks guys. Its days like this that remind me why I have the time & money invested in this sport- having fun w/friends and family. My son (pictured) had a blast & is itching for the next trip.
We're gonna even the score with biggest / most caught next time.
