Speckled Trout at the Land Cut

Fishing the Land Cut has just been great this year. Went fishing with a good friend of mine Scott Smith and his visiting Family. His Dad Wayne from Mississippi and his Brother Matt and Nephew Carter from Nebraska. Great time on the water inspite of heavey winds. We were lucky to get the last of the available shrimp at Billings Bait in the early morning.

Carter (5 years old) pulled in the first speckled trout of the day in just about the first 10 mins of getting his hook in the water. We new it would be a good day after this nice catch.
Carter and is dad (Matt) teamed up to pull in this nice speckled trout. I think the sun glasses might have had a lot to do with their strategy.
Then Carter teamed up with is uncle Scott to land this nice sheepshead on the boat. She gave them a nice fight but they proved to be just to much for this wiggler.
Scott seems to have his groove on for the day catching several specks along the shoreline of the land cut.
Matt certainly didn't want to be left in the dust by his brother so he managed to land this nice 23 inch speck. Largest of the day.
Papa (Wayne) had a nice sheepshead catch, largets of the day. Pretty nice fight as he received some help landing this beauty from Carter his grandson.
Below picture shows Wayne and Matt joining the over 20 inches club. Scott came close with a 19 1/2 incher but couldn't deliver.
Great day of fishing for everyone!
Terrific Land Cut adventure for the Smith family. We sure hope they enjoyed their visit to Corpus Christi, Texas. Y'all come bach now... ya hear!

Y'all have a great day of fishing,
Dave Alexander

Dave- I just got off line reviewing the video and pictures you posted form our fishing trip. You did a great job capturing the awesome time we had. I can’t thank you enough for the experience you facilitated for my boy and me and for me with my dad and brother. And to have it all captured on your website is icing on the cake. It was truly an epic day for us. After it was all over I told Scott that I don’t think he could have asked a better person to take us out. The accommodations were very comfortable, conversation easy, and fishing great. I sincerely want to thank you for taking us out, the guy you are, and your service in the church.
