July 27 morning fish
I fished from 6:45-10:00 am. The water was very high along mangroves. It was very windy and weedy. The.bite was nice for two hours. I caugh snook, but they were small. I used a jig, but had to remove grass every cast. The small snook were by mangroves and bigger fish were further out from mangroves. I could have caught more, but didnt care to catch the small ones. So far my summer ratio has been one red fish for every 20 snook. I think it iS time to lift the ban. It is my belief that there are too many snook and they are overwhelming the reds on a survival basis/food/territory.
