Cast and blast Port Mansfield
Headed down to Mansfield this past weekend with a big group of guys for a buddys birthday. We dove hunted Friday evening and went fishing Saturday morning. The dove hunt went good with all 12 of us getting about 100 birds. The next morning we drew to see who was on which boat. We booked three guides for the trip, we were wadefishing and using arties only. The weather in the morning was good until about ten when the wind started to pick up so I started out using a red and white super spook jr and had a few small blowups and finally hooked a 16 inch trout. I was fishing for reds and all that was hitting the spook were small trout so i switched over to a gold spoon and hooked up with a 25 inch red who decided that when i got him to me that he wanted to be friends with the trout and wrapped up in the stringer and me. After a little work i got him on the stringer.Once the wind picked up we bounced from spot to spot looking for more reds. The weed started getting bad and so i switched from the spoon to a weedless 1/8 jig head with a chickenboy on the and i caught my last 2 reds one 22 and one 20.5 to make my limit.
Oh by the way if the pictures look a little skewed i took them with the panorama feature on my phone and the fish were on a 90 degree table
