Slayed it today. Started the day trying to net some bait. It was going well until I tried to move and my power pole stopped working. Had to empty my hatch and pull the hydraulic lines. Then pull up my power pole and tie it up. Didn’t get a ton of bait but I mostly use artificial anyways. Made it to the flats and quickly caught a monster stingrays and a few smaller slot reds on DOA Shadtails. Found some reds and started chumming…nothing. Then 4 or 5 other guide boats piled on top of each other. I saw them chucking lots of chummies, but didn’t really see them hooking up. I switch over to cut pinfish and instantly hooked up. Just like clockwork. One guide left followed by the rest. They all moved past me and around the bend. I slowly worked over to where they were. First cut pin to hit the water was destroyed. 15 plus reds later and we were wore out. I caught 6 or more reds myself that I didn’t take pictures of. Sometimes you have to have patience and think outside the box. I only had a few pins so I searched for the smallest hook I could find and used my white bait to catch pins while waiting for the fish to bite. I also broke a rod and forgot to renew my parking permit. One $40 ticket later!! Thought it expired November 15th, not October 15th. opps.
