[Shell Beach,LA] It did not take long for Jennifer to get things started with a big Red. After that some big fat Trout to came to the boat. Our Trout action was cut short by the Running of the Bulls. The big Reds showed up big time and just would not leave us alone no matter how many stops we made.
