My daughter is in for a few days from Texas and with Sunday's forecast looking bad, we did our family fishing trip a day earlier than usual. Leaving the dock at a leisurely 7:30 A.M., we headed out toward the Brunette Wreck where a small group of local small boaters were drifting. A few keepers were boated around us but all we could do was a few short seabass and short fluke. The drift was too fast for decent seabass fishing and it was a bit crowded around the "pieces" so we pushed out a little farther to a small "hill". Our first drift produced a nice 21" keeper on a 4oz. Spro tipped with a Gulp 4" mullet. We stayed on that hill for quite awhile and boxed 8 keepers up to 23" plus many throwbacks. I, again, used up lots of Littoral Society tags. Most of the fish came on the Gulp pink 4" mullet dropper although a few came on a plain killie under a green plastic skirt. My wife "schooled" me with three keepers...23",22" and 22". My best fish was my first one and 2 others at 19". My daughter held her own and even though she hasn't fished in a few years, she quickly remembered what to do from her childhood fishing trips. As a dad, fishing with your wife, and children, is a great feeling, despite how many keepers hit the ice. We actually had three generations of women fishing together including my daughter, my wife and my 89year old mother-in-law.
