Vero to Grand Harbor

28 Mar 2018...Vero to Grand Harbor...Checking some areas out prior to May tournament.  Slow run North through Rag Bagger Row.  Fished a cut that has never produced.  One Cocktail Blue, 3 short Trout and short Snapper galore, still not what I would consider productive.  Next stop the Estuary South, short Trout and Ladyfish.  Johns Island was a waste today, nothing.  Grand Harbor, tide dropped enough to clear the bridge.  Tarpon crashing bait, by the time I could get back she had ducked back through the culvert.  Only other thing playing, Jacks.  Decided to check out a few spots for the May tournament.  Docks in the Cache Cay area have always produced Snook, one of the docks was always good for 10 to 15 Snook, and  a slot could be found.  3 first place Snook were caught under it, none mine.  The top docks were decimated by the storms. A lot of the docks have not been rebuilt/repaired.   Couple of short Snook and a 3 # Sheepshead.  Sheepshead was special, had an audience.  Lady wanted to see it, foreign, so probably vacationer.  Whole family came out to see it and were amazed when I released it.  Moved to the South of the Barber St Bridge.  Snook hole, counted 5 Sharks.  The Carp are still there.  Maybe this year I will catch one.   Most of the fish today were caught on the Matrix Shad, Magneto and the Baby Vudu Shrimp.  All players released.

    Water varies day to day day you have fairly clean water in a spot...the very next morning it is trashed.
    The past week I have noticed a lot of suspended algae / grass ( the red cabbage stuff ) making keeping a lure clean difficult....but move a half mile and it isn't there. 
    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.
