Gator

Went out today to try some new flats I scoped out the other day. First ten casts turned up nothing, but next cast, threw along the mangroves and turned up this. Storms kicked us out after that. Not a terrible day though. pe7anuhu.jpg

    Nice gator!! Where were you (generally speaking of course)?

    There's some flats off of south tropical trail. Had to run through some old witches yard to get to em. Always fun.

    IRL side on BR side? What were conditions like down there? I've never fished down that way.

    BR side. Most of the time it's flat. I normally can't get my skiff out till the weekends so I resort to wading most days. It's been pretty good lately with the bait starting to run through though.

    Awesome. What ramps are around there on the BR? Like I said, I've never really fished that area. I'm normally up around Titusville, further north in the BR, or in the ML.

    I launch from is the Pineda causeway ramp. It really depends where I fish though.

    Just a thought for the future...wouldn't it be a better gambit to walk up to the house and ring the doorbel..Introduce yourself and ask permission to walk thru to the water...maybe offer to share your catch...I know up north if you go ask the farmer nicely...you many times get a nice answer usually most times...

    and if you trespass...you could get in trouble..or worse.

    You may have burned yourself with this lady...but it may not be too late. Go back and give a long and sincere appology..explain how much you love fishing and that you let that cloud your good judgement...and if she could forgive that...maybe you could let me pass thru to the water...Worth a shot if you like that spot. :)
