On our second day we did something different. We hired a backcountry guide to take us to the far inshore waters to try and catch a fish we’ve never caught – Snook. It was slow getting started but our guide finally hit the mark and not only found us some of the target species but I also completed what is known as the Backcountry Slam – catching a Snook, Redfish and Speckled Trout all in the same day.
So, not only did we learn a few new tricks and spots for fishing down here, I accomplished a kind of fishing milestone along with catching my first Snook.
The next report will be on Allison’s custom designed 13th Birthday. Until then, happy sunsets.
