Put in at outdoor resorts about 6:45 am on sunday. Made the run down to the rodgers river and kept working our way south to about the harney! Just trolled different sections of the outside shoreline but not much to talk about! One 27 inch red first thing on a topwater and that was it for the whole stretch! We threw plugs, jigs, gold spoon, bucktails just about anything we could think of. Lots a small fry bait down there but nothing wanting to play for us! Only saw one tarpon roll a good ways off shore in that area coming in, i was thinking they would be showing up good down there? When the tide got high we ran back north and hit some outside points between seminole point and the chatham river using mullet chunks and jigs but not much with that method either other than a few cats! Tried one trout flat in the area and did manage a couple real nice trout! I know it will be real soon and fishing should be on fire but yesterday didnt seem to be the day. Back to the dock at 3 and even though fishing was slow, it was paradise like always just being on the water down there with a couple good friends!
It was slow this weekend. Typical April, the fish are everywhere and nowhere. Another 2-3 weeks still...
I'm seeing plenty of Snook and Reds but at 10 ft. cause of the muddy water from the wind. They don't like me at 10 ft...
I was far up in the Backcountry at Mud Bay just west of the Blackwater Sat. tryin to find clean water. I found it and was surprised at all the fish still up in the Fresh Water areas, But they'd follow and not eat anything....Dang Fish.
