Cooks, Cookin at the Texas Land Cut

Had a great time fishing the Land Cut with the Cooks. Elder and Sister Cook serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints enjoyed a day of fishing from their labors. I wasn't sure how the day might work out with Northeastern winds but we took a chance on it and paid off. We bundled up for the 55 minute trip to the land cut by boat. The weather was just beautiful to enjoy the great Texas outdoors.

Sister Cook caught this nice 22 inch black drum using live shrimp from Clems Marina. She sure kept a steady hand while landing this beauty on board our vessel.

Elder Cook was catching speckled trout right and left all day long. Many of these were undersized trout and released them back as soon as we caught them. Pictured above is one of the many Specks caught.

Watching where sister Cook caught her black drum, I took advantage of the same spot and landed this nice 26 inch black drum while Elder Cook was eating a sandwich. Then later Elder Cook caught a nice Speckled trout while I was eating a sandwich. There just isn't time to take a break ;o)

Great time with a lot of laughs! We were very happy with the action we had today. Northern winds can be difficult for a successful day. We felt like we were a day early for the great fishing since Thursday [next day] had expected southwest winds which are more desirable.
