Default The doc's did South Padre!

I didn't do a live thread because I truly wanted to enjoy my wife, my momma and my family. We once again went back to my roots and spent a week at south padre. Introduced little doc to saltwater flats fishing and she did great!



Leaving Boone Doc!



Lil doc geared up for the trip!

Fished with Ernest again on Wednesday. Spent the day in South Bay because my brother wanted a snook. He caught a small one early on a pink skitterwalk(my recommendation). Then later he hooked a good one! Probably 28-30 inches. I was wading over to help him land it and Ernest headed over for pics. On the last jump the snook cut him off! It was awesome to see that fish but heart breaking! I didn't take many pics because of scattered storms bso I left my phone in the boat. Little doc did catch a trout the length of her arm when we were fishing together. I'm guessing 24-25 inches. I was not happy I didn't get a pic but we let her go for another day!

Took the girls out to eat at Piatti in the quarry tonight. Had a nice Italian wine to compliment a great meal. Was a wonderful end to the week topped off with tableside s'mores. Life is good!

Had many incredible days with Eric Glass. Landed 17 reds in one day with him on the sand flats between SPI and Port Mansfield. Can't say enough good things about his knowledge of the fish no matter the conditions and his laid back personality. Great job catching the drum....casted to so many of those and never got a taker.
