Wet birthday trip 9-8-20

Had to go solo today, buddy had to back out the very last minute; as in 4am. Today is my birthday so I was going to enjoy my day regardless. I waited for a few storms to pass before putting the boat in the water at sunup. I started off at the north jetty( gulf side near the bolivar pocket) throwing topwater ( she pup). The small reds were hungry just before the bad weather hit. I had 13 reds but only one keeper at 21 inches. The others were like 17 to 19 inches, so it was a blast seeing the blowups. I then decided to run closer to the yacht basin to somewhat dodge this storm but it closed in on me and a few other boats. After waiting it out for about an hour , I tried a couple coves by pelican island bridge cause the weather was a little better, but not much. Ended up catching 3 solid trout ( 20 to 22in.) on a redfish magic spinnerbait. (Chartreuse/ gold Colorado blade) I was so anxious to go back to the jetties, but mother nature didnt let that happen. The winds switched from SE to NW, and lightning continued to pop all around me. Called it a day , all fish were released. Got one red pic before the rain.

Hard core man. Always appreciate your reports though. Happy B-day and glad you made it back safe.

Thanks Jarrad, definitely a pucker factor this morning, but 2 vhf radios, life jacket, kill switch, and a couple phone calls on my location definitely eased my mind. The storm just wrapped completely around myself and other fisherman. We all stayed within sight of one another for safety.

I am addicted to the outdoors, I can throw the same lure all day for just that one fish. Or sit in my bow stand to see that one deer cross thru the woods. Keeps me coming back.

Stay mad at em! Keeps the rest of us older fellas motivated!

I actually get the calming effect when I'm honed in but I find it hard to get in that "zone" some days. And I really only ever focus that much when I fish by myself. 90% of my trips used to be solo over the last 20 years or so but I'm really trying to include others a little more now.

I love having company while fishing and hunting, but some days are just relaxing when I can do my own thing.
