On Wednesday I met up with some other kayak fishermen at Rollover Pass on the Gulf of Mexico...........we were expecting a good day............1/2 waves and a strong out going tide from 6 am until 2 pm.

Launched by 8:30 and within 15 minutes of anchoring up in 10 ft. water I got a run, hookup and landed my first bull red.............love getting that SKUNK behind me early!!! :D

Image

Wolfman was next to strike!

Image

Then my turn again............this was a good start on the day!

Image

Wolfman hooks up again!!!

Image
Image
Image

TA DA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Image

MiniBlue was behind me and in the sun............but here is one of his bull reds!

Image

I got my first double:

Image

For the most part the bite was a little timid and they would just move off slowly with the bait. Sometime you didn't really know they had the bait in their mouths and we pulled a lot of bait out of their mouths as they were not very aggressive feeders.

Wolfman hooks up on a double!

Image
Image
Image

He lands both of them and when we try to take a pic of both, he loses one................guess what we have done this before!!! :oops:

Image

Pescador777 scores a bull red, his first from a kayak!

Image

MiniBlue and his partner are both hooked up at the same time.

Image

There was catching activity from fast and furious to just very steady all day.

Image
Image

This one was a beauty!!!

Image

And more:

By 1pm we were all out of bait and left them biting. It was a great day with about 50 bull reds caught by 7 kayakers.

We hit the beach, loaded up and was home by 4 pm.

Nice report. Beautiful fish.. For the water color the fish are a good golden color.

Great report MM.

I am trying to get free to get down to Rollover in a couple of weeks and hope to catch a couple of days BTB while I am there. I may beg some advice from you for what is happening where at that time.

Thanks again for another great report. Phill
