New Year's Fishing

Well the New Year has arrived and I can't think of a better way to start things off than by wetting a line in the Colorado River at PPRV #7.

Matt & Carly were down for a visit and proved to be pretty good at catching their share. I know fishing isn't supposed to be a competition but I think Carly started off ahead and Matt finished strong under the lights.

Tracy and the kids were chillin' on the deck when I came back from Buddy's Bait Shop with some "fresh dead" shrimp.

Carly and Tracy were into the yellow tail while Matt looks on.

Another first! Carly catches this baby black drum. They fight better than the little perch!

While the rest of us were playing with sand trout and yellow tail under the lights, Carly brought in this nice redfish.

Here is another nice fish - a big sand trout.

While I was helping Carly with her fish, Matt quietly racked up the score by catching lots of sandies and some nice drum.

We all had a good time and had plenty to eat - even if it wasn't fish! Silver Turtles and toasted marshmallows seemed to fill everyone up.

Time to head for home..See you next trip!
