This speck struck at the popper multiple times as I started to pick up the popper dropper fly rig to recast. I stopped the cast and got to see the fish hit the popper one more time, then abandon the popper to eat the dropper. I got lucky, because this fish hit the dropper so hard that I was able to get the slack out of the line and get her hooked.
Targeted Snook today. Casted the fly rod most of the day with no luck on Snook. We tried one last spot, and because I was working against an increasingly strong wind, I switched to a spinning rod with a Zman soft plastic lure. We got the targeted species to hand, plus some other fish.
Congrats to the 2020 Nueces County 4H Trap and Skeet Fishing Trip Winner. Bays and Clays donated the trip which was part of the bucket raffle to benefit the Nueces County 4H Trap and Skeet Team. The raffle was part of the fundraising at the annual shotgun competition including Trap, Skeet, and Sporting Clays.
The lucky winner is pictured with a black drum caught using shrimp and speckled trout using artificial lures. This was his first experience fishing with artificial lures.
Bays and Clays was excited to support the event and will be donating another trip in 2021!
