Met Paul Pomietlasz at Chet’s house at 8:15.  Chet became sick the previous evening and bowed out, so Paul & I took off to fish the club tournament on this chilly morning.  Started by Durney Key, looking for trout with no success,  Went into Westport and found a school of redfish but only managed one before the rest spooked away.  Looked around in this area for an hour or so, until the incoming tide ended, then went to an area north of marker 4 looking for mackerel.  Hung a chumbag and fished hard with spoons, jigs and live shrimp, but the water was too dirty and cold.  Moved South, just past the sandbar and continued to chum but still no takers.  Tried another couple spots for trout but struck out and called it a day to arrive at the weigh-in.  Turns out this was a hard day of fishing as only three fish were weighed in and I caught the only legal red for a $50.00 first place
