First time away without the kids … and they took time out to fish!
These Minnesotans have caught some trout in their time, but nothing like what they got on this trip! They caught four sea trout in the 16- to 19-inch class and threw back another 20 in the same weight group. They also landed a pair at 21.5 inches and had to release another two of the same size plus a 22-incher.
(The regulations for spotted sea trout are not less than 15″ or
more than 20″ (statewide) except one fish over 20″
per person. Four fish per harvester per day in the SE Region.)
Kevin and Karen also caught their limit of mangrove snapper to about three pounds. And, to top off the day, they brought in some Spanish and cero mackerel which they’re smoking back at home using our brine recipe.
