Another interesting week, the Reds are not out and about and the Trout slowed down. Slipped back up over an Oyster Bar as with the rain we've had the water was flowing hard. As I got out and dragged the boat across I could see big Snook crashing bait. The water was black with Mullet. Worked as far back as was possible, really looking for small Tarpon, but none were to be seen. Figured that the Snook had been well fed as none would stir. Drifting out with the flow I saw one Snook that would go an easy 20 pounds, she was just taking it easy. Found a Bobber Bush in full fruit. Harvested 3 bobbers a rigged DOA and a jerk bait. One of them had about 15 feet of mono attached. Hate to see this as all too often birds get caught up in the line and wind up dead. In another area, harvested a Badonk-A-Donk. Can't see why someone would leave one of these in the bushes. In the fresh water ponds reaching into bushes can be hazardous to your health. Too many big worms. Haven't seen any of the big worms in salt water areas.
Mangrove Snapper have made an appearance, most are too short. Still catching Flounder, this weeks was 16 inches, not heavy enough to keep. Tarpon are in my favorite canal and are just as stubborn as ever. They have even started to roll next to the boat. Once again three short Snook fell victim to the Gulp. Still encouraged by this. Only one Trout on the day, 17.5 inches. Lost two good ones on top on the flats, just a tad to much wind.
