    I caught more fish on a shrimp tipped bucktail than any other artificial.  My biggest fish was a 39" snook in the Faka Union Canal. I can't remember the mile marker, but it was West of the no wake zone.

    I have caught just about everything you can on a DOA C.A.L. Paddle Tale tipped with shrimp including a 42" snook, tarpon, and bonefish. Now I can hardly catch anything with it. I switched to other artificials. Different times I guess.

       My preferred method of fishing is throwing topwater plugs.To me
    nothing more exciting when a snook slams into a topwater.
       However,and this happen yesterday a big snook slams the plug
    and misses.My thought she slamming the plug with her tail and
    no hookup.
       Any suggestions on increasing my strikes?

    It runs from Port of the Islands, turns in to the Faka Union before dumping into Faka Union Bay.  It's marked the entire way.

    Yea, I've been back and forth in that canal a bunch. Sometimes I would troll a gold spoon on the way out and get my tackle ready to fish.

    More than once, I have been chased back to the Port in a thunderstorm with the hammer down until I came to the houses on the canal.  Very short then.

    I didn't think one 20" trout or big sailcats going after the topwater this weekend was worthy of this board....  Now, the new Mercury 115 pro xs hanging from the back of my skiff might be.

    Yes it is. I would like that too.

    I wish that were true.  But alas, it is false information.

    Your post advised to look for a truck and trailer.

    But yes, their boat often in its own slip.  Yet, not full time.  But when two officers are on duty, its not uncommon for one to be on patrol by boat, while the other is on patrol in the truck, traveling along US 41.

    Regardless, this is probably the wrong forum in which to be promoting the violation of boating and resource protection regulations.

    FWC will also often patrol locally from Caxambas Pass. As will the Collier County Sherrif marine patrol. And they all like to hang out in the Faka Union as long as the bugs aren't bad.  

    Carry on.  But lets keep it legal.
