Redfish at the ICW

Had a chance to take our grandkids fishing here in Corpus Christi. With 4 kids on the boat we planned on having time for just a few hours and give them a taste of what fishing is all about in South Texas. Picked up some live shrimp at clems and poles rigged for the bottom we were on our way. 
First stop was the ICW and fish the drop-offs. It didn't take long for the fish to strike! Both Breyton and Evie caught a couple nice redfish with their first cast! Evie caught a 19 1/2 inch redfish, while Breyton pulled in a 17 incher. Both are undersized and returned to the water. But these fish were almost as much as they could handle.

Emmitt caught a mangrove snapper. Seemed unusual to catch this little guy at our location. I see these over at the Packery Channel usually.
Jordan tied Evie with his 19 1/2 inch redfish for biggest of the day. 
Emmitt pulls in this 19 incher just before we finished up for the day. 
It was a nice couple hours on the boat and everyone caught fish! Next stop was lunch at Snoopy's and Ice Cream at Scoopy's.
