Trout fishing in the Florida Keys

Caught a great Trout today
While out fishing with my friend Captain Dave Perkins, I caught what appears to be the biggest Trout of the year. 23 1/2 " measured at the boat when caught,  It actually had a six inch fish in its stomach. I am looking forward to baking this fish for tomorrow nights dinner.
Dave and I snuck out to the Back Country when the wind subsided this afternoon, we finally returned to the dock after dark. Dave lost a very nice Red fish earlier in the day and we caught several Lady fish after that but never hooked up with any other Reds.

Trout caught on a Gulp Ghost Shad
No, I'm not Muslim, it is protection from the sun
This Trout had just ingested a six inch bait fish, greedy guy then went after my lure.

Great day on the Florida Bay with Captain Dave Perkins

    1. Large fish eats smaller fish, man eats larger fish. Spring is coming to a lake near you, get that Lido ready.
