I am halfway through one of my frequent kayak fishing trips in Tampa with guide Neil Taylor of Strike Three Kayak fishing. Over the past two days I caught 42 speckled trout, 16 ladyfish, a gag grouper, 2 sea robins, and a flounder. I also caught several two uncommon species -- a striped burrfish (a spiny looking pufferfish -- my second one ever), and a remora (this is a new species for me). Remoras have a large suction pad on top of their heads. They attach to larger fish and are transported around that way.
All fish were caught on lures -- either by jigging or by casting soft plastics. Some of the photos show the jigging setup with a small yellow metal jig and a pink fly teaser tied on the same loop knot. I am looking forward to two more days of fishing here.
