It's that time of the year. Our "annual" weekend trip to Chokoloskee. We rented a lodge at the Chokoloskee Island Park marina and fished all day Saturday and Sunday morning. The weather was a bit spotty with storms pushing through the area. We had our moments of flat calm throughout the day though. The local residents had a fish fry when we got back from the first day and invited us to some free chow. Can't find a nicer bunch of folks.
First red fish ever! Took me 3 separate trips throughout the state to finally bag me a red.
Specks everywhere, I lost count after I stopped taking pictures. A dolphin stopped by and reined them up for me on the first day and I was literally getting one every cast.
A sand trout?
Wouldn't be a Choko trip if I don't catch a puffer.
Fishing buddies also caught fish.
The aforementioned dolphin. Found him fining in 3 feet of water. There was a 7 foot deep hole nearby that held a school of trout he was after.
I was the one passing front of you in the old brown sit inside standing up paddling. I said hello to you on the way out but wanted to stay out of your way.
Congrats on the choko red. The other guys who were following are my neighbors who were staying in a trailer there at the park for the weekend. I drove down to show em around. See report in separate post.
Peace and nice report.
