Though we never caught the gator trout we were looking for, we did catch about a half dozen nice specks in the 15-16" range. In addition, Brett got an inshore slam with a small flounder, speckled trout and Redfish.
Brett did really well on the reds with a gulp pogy fished on a jighead. He caught about a half dozen small reds and two overslot fish. One was 28.5" and 8lbs while the other was a 30" fish that weighed 10.5lbs.
It was a great day on the water and fall fishing is really starting to crank up.
