Big Blues and a Grey Trout

Work and family life have been pretty hectic lately so my apologies for the late report.  Last month, I ventured to Rudee inlet a few times with hopes of crossing off a certain specie on the citation bucket list.  After coming up a half an inch short last year, I was pretty adamant about getting one this season.  Unfortunately, as implied earlier, work and family life come first and I didn't get as many chances as I would have liked.  I caught dozens in the upper 20s to lower 30 inches but couldn't get the three footer I wanted.  


I did however hook into my new personal best grey trout while using live bait for the blues.  I knew they were in there, but I was still surprised when I saw it.  I set the hook on it very close to the boat and it came to the surface and thrashed like crazy.  A near by boater said it sounded like I fell in!   As soon as the splashing stopped I saw what it was and immediately grabbed the leader and landed it very green.  It slide under the Predator seat and thrashed again for several seconds.

There's a chance I might run into the big blues in the lower bay later, 
but for now, 
it's time to move on to other species.

    1. The big blues are absolutely nuts on a kayak. I've had several do tail dances right across my bow, jump in the kayak, teeth all everywhere… it's insane. Gotta love it :)

  3. Estupendos peces Rob, pero me he fijado en el asiento y veo que has cambiado de embarcación. Esto también es sorprendente jeje

    Saludos.

    1. Gracias, amigo.

      Todavía me encanta mi Trident 13, pero adopté el Predator de agua más pequeño.
