Tesiero family braves the wind.

Kelly Tesiero treated her husband, Don and their kids Trey and Marie to a day out on the water for Don's birthday. The sun was out, but the wind was blowing - even more than yesterday. We stopped at Rayonier to see if the trout bite was still on, but it wasn't to be. Don did pick up a nice Black Drum. We untied and cruised over to Lanceford to the "not-so-secret" secret spot (after a tip from local long-time fisherman Greg Nissen) but I think we got there a little late on the incoming tide. No fish. The wind was really blowing but it didn't faze the Tesiero's one bit. We ran up Bell River and cut through in behind Tiger Island which blocked the wind and made the fishing real pleasant. After dropping anchor Don was hooked up with a nice trout after only a few casts. It wasn't long before everyone got in on the action with Trey leading the way. They reeled in trout, Black Drum, trout and even a nice, but undersized, Red Drum. Kelly and Marie caught their share, too. Total for the day: About (8) trout, (6) Black Drum, (1) Red Drum - and a couple of bait stealers. Most were caught on a jig with live shrimp. What a great day of fishing!
