The weather has been a bit on the blowsy side. Steady winds have kept the water stirred up. Sight fishing is still next to impossible. Old faithful electric died after three years. So far this was the longest lived. I am hard on them. Fishing in the neighborhood of 60 days a year puts a lot of wear on one. Mud is not too good for one either. This week it was hop from island to island and wade. Water temps are still tolerable for wading. The hardest part is taking the wakes from the south bound yankees. First stop netted a 3 pound Flounder and a loss off his smaller brother. Can not land them all. Both of these fish were about 3 feet out from the Mangroves on a shore in the direct wind. Next few stops found only Ladyfish and Micro Jacks. Favorite run gave up 6 short Trout and more Ladyfish, nothing big. On to the final stop for the day. This time I got to stake out in the lee. Waded over a small bar and worked to a spot where there is a 3 to 4 foot deep hole tight to the island. Nothing. Worked back to the North end and hooked a nice 20 inch Trout. A few casts later and it was an 18 inch Snook. The Snook is very important as they have been really scarce on the flats since the freeze. Hope to see more of them this year.
