Last Wednesday I fished with Captain Mike Gorton. I was looking forward to fishing out of Mike’s boat, a custom canoe that he built to fish down here. We had a great time, and I enjoyed fishing out of a different boat.
Our target was redfish, and even though it was overcast and windy decided to give it a shot anyway. This turned out to be a great decision, as being on the water when we heard about Jon Ain passing away kept our minds off the sadness and focused on something positive.
We found reds at each of the places we fished, and while they were relatively happy we didn’t manage to feed one. Actually, that’s not true: I did feed one, I just didn’t get the steel in. I did catch a small lemon shark, however, to keep us from catching nothing, and we had a great time.
I’d like to thank Mike for a great day on the water, and also for the delicious salmon he gave me from his Alaska operation–regular salmon will never be the same.
No fishing planned at the moment, though I may sneak out this week.
