On Monday, I headed for Palma Sola Bay. I had gotten a tip that redfish were plentiful there -- and they were. I cast at several, but didn't get a hit or land a fish.

Tuesday morning, I returned. Redfish were strangely absent. I did fare well on spotted seatrout, though. Picked up 10 real quick from a sand hole. Then, I paddled to the flat where the redfish had been. Got a 6-pound trout and several 18-inchers. In all, I caught and released 25 trout. All came on my Big Eye Baitfish.
