Had a Blast at Flamingo Today

Had plans to head into Snake Bight this morning, but never made it that far.. The bite was on at the ranger dock during a strong sweeping tide letting out of the flats into the little channel there. I anchored up in a sweet spot and started off with a decent shallow water Jack on a top water, but a DOA Shrimp was the champion of the day. A slow retrieve with a light lift/drop of the rod tip landed everything for the remainder of the day.

    Yeah - I pulled out at around 1130 am.. a couple others showed up on the spot, the clouds came in, and the wind kicked up. Called that my cue, but from sun up until that point it was a quite a nice day. I took home two trout, 16 & 18".. Just ate them as a matter of fact :)

    Nice! I need to get back out there... itching to cast the fly.

    A fly would have cleaned up during the time I was out there.. I was actually thinking about getting into that while I was sitting out there.
  • If you can stand up in the yak and cast I find it to be a lot of fun. It can be a work out, and annoying getting tangled and a pain to cast in the wind... but when you're striping that fly nice and slow through the shallows and have a snook stalking it then go in for the hit... man what a great feeling! I'm told if you can actually cast to your target sight fishing can be amazing too! :rotflmao

    Yeah - So far I don't like standing in my yak.. lol.. guess I have to work on that first.

    Video of the day..
