Guided Mr. Kevin Thompson this morning. Kevin wanted to learn about our local redfish and trout fishery and I thought I could help him out on the subject. Again, topwaters early quickly produced some very nice trout and a 26″ beautiful redfish. It was great see the huge blowup and watch Kevin reel begin to smoke. Covered some other areas with topwaters and caught many, many more nice trout. Switched to Gulp! Jerkshads once the sun was high and scored some more redfish and trout in deeper water. In conversation, I mentioned that I was trying to repair my sprinker system at my house until 11pm the night before and that a main pipe had ruptured causing me to shut off the water to my home for the night. Bottled water shower was interesting! Just so happens, Kevin owns a landscaping and sprinker company and offered to come over and help after our fishing adventures. Kevin switched out a main valve, fixed a pipe and installed a new timer for me in a few hours(would have taken me a few weeks.) Needless to say, Kevin received a free fishing trip today and is always welcome to fish with me in the future. Very cool and thoughful guy. Thanks Kevin!! All fish released.
