    Cudjoe backcountry 3/27 & 25

    Was able to get out again today. Middle of outgoing 10-12 NE moderate chop, good drift across current near Kemp channel. Bunches of different kinds of fish. Many trout all upper slot, decent mangroves, lanes & yellow tail snappers. The YT have been a little scarse in the back lately. Also one of the largest porgies I have seen around here. Reminded me of the Party Boats in Wildwood Crest in the 50s & 60s. Best part was we didn't need any fish so all were released in good condition. Bert with a couple before releasing.











    Marsha who was with us Sunday with another nice trout.

    Fun post and fine catch Ron (and Bugsy). Also very sporting to release them all.
