Took advantage of nice in-coming tide plus favorable wind conditions and took our two sons and grandson on what we hoped to be productive crab/redfish trip just ahead of Father's Day and I could not have gotten a better pre-Father's Day present.We launched not quite as early as I typically do,had 17 crab nets ready for action and a few rods with various lure presentations,one Tsunamai under Versamax Bolt cork,one with Jann's Netcraft Spinnerbait(killer on grassbed reds),one with incredibly effective Lunker City Shaker,last ole trusty tank of a Curado with Top Dog.Started our trip soaking crab nets and headed to grass beds in between and older son was tossing Pimp Daddy Shaker with orange tail and saw him set hook of fine and fat red that I guesstimated to be over 21 inches,he was a shade under 24,and dat was it as far as fishing went and we ended up with 50 decent crabs,all caught using thick turkey necks!!Had nice pre-Father's Day and crabs ready for us to bust up!!!Happy Father's Day to all dads!!!Mine smiling down on me from Heaven and think he had a hand in today's productive trip!!!Hope we nab some fine fish next Fri/Sat for Jesuit Alumni Rodeo.
