My guess was right, and we obtained a number of 23-24 ″ alternatives that we launched whereas waiting for a couple of 28-29 inch degrees. The climate was lovely, so the experience was good. Most of the guard attacks took maintain of reside pinfish, and the lifeless bait attracted the purple snapper just a little too much.
