Yesterday I fished with Ron Whiteley. He is an excellent and very knowledgeable fly angler. Looked a little stormy early in the morning, but the weather settled down as the day progressed. Right off the bat, Ron got a big snook of 30 inches plus. Great start. Next we caught a ton of trout. Nothing huge, but ample fun on a 6-weight rod.
I had been joking with Ron about wanting a 30 inch red. Well later in the day I hooked and landed a 29 incher. Close enough! It was a very good day at Gasparilla.
