Was able to get out before work this morning for a little while. When the alarm went off at 4:45, I heard a big clap of thunder and rain. checked the radar and a thunder storm was over Biloxi but slid off to the east... delayed a little bit but started fishing just before 6. West-Southwest wind was kicked up so I just hit a few places along the north shoreline of Deer that was semi protected. Got a griller size red in the box on a bone spook jr. Continued hitting a couple other spots along the island and found a school of hungry trout, only downside was they were nearly all 12 inches. I did get one about 17" to slam the spook before Flipper's entire family crashed the party! It was time to head in for work anyway... 7:30 am cranked up while watching the dolphins put on a show.

Redfish on the halfshell tonight, trout tacos tomorrow night!

excellent way to start the morning!
That was worh getting up for sure! If flipper is feeding nearby, there's likely your target species there also!
Nice report buddy. Been a lot of flippers around.
Wonderful way to wake up! Love it!
That zara spook jr. is quickly becoming one of my favorite lures...
