    June 30th. Matlacha pass

    Went fishing in the yak in matlacha pass for a couple of hours this morning on an incoming tide. Paddled out to Indian field first cast landed a small snook on storm chug bug. 3 casts later I get a little 21" red. So I'm not getting any more hits in that spot so a paddle a little bit north and start fishing a pass into the back bays and land another small red on my bagley gold hammered rattle spoon. This ones only about 17". I let him go and catch another small red on the spoon 2casts later. I start heading back to the launch stopping to fish some small mangrove islands on the way. I missed a nice little tarpon about 3foot long because he was tailing my lure and got too close to my kayak and spooked off. Didn't catch anything huge but still a fun day in my book.

    Where did you launch your kayak? I'd like to fish that area out of my kayak as well but I havnt been up there before except by boat.


    God of all days
    Glorious in all of Your ways
    The majesty the wonder and grace
    In the light of Your Name

    Let hope rise and darkness tremble
    In Your holy light
    That every eye will see Jesus our God
    Great and mighty to be praised

    I launch right at matlacha community park. Theres a kayak launch on the left side of the park as soon as you pull in, you have to go behind the art league building.

    Even those small reds will hit spoons like a ton of bricks. Nice catch!

    Yeah thats true. I'm always surprised when I land a red and measure it and its not 27" lol. They are little bulldogs and fight like crazy. Thats why they are so much fun to catch.
