I had the priviledge of taking out my two son's basketball coaches. Both Nathan and Joseph play in the LaPorte City League. Nathan is on the Freshman Division Rockets - and they went undefeated during the regular season - they are coached by Coach Mike. Joseph is on the Senior Division Rockets - and they lost only 1 game during the regular season and they are coached by Coach Matt - who is Coach Mike's younger (and he says better looking) brother.

Neither had ever caught anything like a Bull Red or Black Drum - so they were in for a great day of fishing. We determined that we could fish the morning before the cold front came in around noon.

The water was 58.6 - we fished the end of an outgoing tide and then a slack tide. Wind was out of the ESE early then shifted to the NNW after the front blew through. We fished with both crab and shad. We spent all our time at the Moon Rock.

This was the first fish of the day and it was a biggie. It bottomed the 50lb scales out but wasn't as big as the one we caught earlier in the week. You can see by Coach Mike's face that he was thrilled!
