This morning I fished Goodland for a few hours with Mike. Nice and cool out and hardly any bugs. The tide was low and was slow incoming all morning. Fishing some shoreline I don’t normally fish I picked up a few mangrove snappers. Later as we fished Mike hooks up with a snook and as he is bringing the fish in it jumps and throws his plug back at him and one of the hooks proceeds to embed itself in his forearm. After contemplating what to do I think of trying the string trick which I had done once before with success (Here is a youtube video of the procedure http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKAAGWZskGg ). Well it worked like a charm and saved a trip to the hospital. After a little break mike was right back at it. Late morning we found a few snook and I managed to catch one decent fish. When I hooked up with the fish he proceeded to drag me into the mangroves before I could throw my anchor out. I lowered my rod down into the water to try and keep him out of the roots and it worked as he ran for open water. Only saw one tarpon today.
