Big Day on Baffin

In my new boat (a 2010 Curlew by NewWater Boatworks) with some great clients today, Mother Nature greeted us with an unexpectedly blustery day. Guiding with Capt. Aubrey Black and some of his clients, I've been trying my hand at learning a new bay system and fishing for trophy trout.

Well, one person in our group, Randy Pyle (a long-time client of Aubrey's and a great fisherman, too), caught a beautiful 28+" trout that weighed in at a little over 8 pounds today. The rest of us caught a few smaller trout, and three really nice redfish. But, overall, the day was a little tough, mostly because of the very blustery weather. We fished the South Shoreline of Baffin, the Meadows and the King Ranch Shoreline, looking for mullet in concentrations. The same group will be going out tomorrow and the weather doesn't sound any better, but now, because of that one gigantic trout, everyone has a strong desire to go, no matter what! That's fishin' for you!
