After two or three non-productive Lady P trips,closer to the Lacombe side,older son and I decided we needed a change of venue and sought fish a tad E of my typical redfish trips of late.Got a decent,though not quite early enough,start this am and found plenty,plenty mullets getting crashed at first spot and older son tossed Top Dog,had decent speck smack lure but SOMEHOW escape two sets of ultra-sharp treble hooks and I tossed Tsunamai glow shrimp,under Versamax Bolt,had nice red ripping drag but somehow likewise spit hook,finally nabbed 18 inch fat red dat we boxed,then we made de executive decision to hit S side of Trestles with NADA but older son did have few strikes,we then hit I-10 Twin Spans and I lost beautiful flounder,my bad as I did NOT keep enough pressure on him(bad omen) and we came back to W side of Trestles,exchanged pleasantries with gent solo fishing and I lost yet another doormat(both inhaled Lunker City Shakers)and sight-casted to HUGE sheepshead that charged at Shaker,saw older son and bolted like he knew something amiss(doggone spooky sheepshead)!!!Best part is I just got text from Medicare Client who was headed home with solo limit of reds,from spot so close to home it aint funny!!!Good news is now I know reds are back to dey ole stompin' grounds and even better news is trolling motor transducer mated to older Lowrance Elite 4X works superbly and NO crosstalk between it and Hook 2-5,console-mounted.Gonna be nice having portable unit up front(extremely accurate)and console unit with GPS,etc!!!Probably coulda stuck it out at first spot but Wifey and I have teleconference this afternoon and older son wanted to head to Trestles,why not,and flounders MIGHT be STACKED up out there!!!Lunker City Shakers was getting dey attention and hurts to miss flounders dat size!!!Oh well,like I keep saying,Lady P ONLY gonna get MUCH better and buddy of mine nabbing a solo limit so close to home never a bad thing!!!
