Sensational Sunrise - SI inshore -5/8

First time fishing in two weeks and I'm not sure what was better, the spectacular sunrise or the snook bite. Fished solo on Saturday and literally came home with sore forearms from battling overslot snook and bruiser jack crevalles. While I released larger fish, I only have one picture from Saturday, a nearby kayak fisherman was kind enough to take a pic of with me with a 32" snook. Took my buddy Brian on Sunday. Although Saturday morning was better, we still had a heck of a Sunday morning. Brian even got one small enough to keep, 32 inches on the dot.
First fish of the day:

    Watch your background exposure for cyber scouters.

    Shhhh!!!

    Unless you know the area really well those spots look like every other waterfront property in Sebastian. Trust me, I was looking for similar docks last time I was out!!!

    It's as big a secret as the North jetty.....:)
    There are many roads to travel
    Many things to do.
    Knots to be unraveled

    Not really worried about the "cyber scouters". This area gets quite a bit of fishing pressure as does the rest of our inshore waters. Just a few years back, I would hardly see another boat fishing these docks; and if they were, they were not fishing the docks effectively. It is frustrating to be geared up and headed to one of "my spots" only to find another angler already there. Odds are they are not fishing it effectively and they will probably blow the fish out. Although, I am starting to find more and more anglers who are fishing it the way I do. I wonder if I am to blame or if they figured it out on their own. Between taking friends and customers over the years, I have shown these spots and exactly how I fish them to at least 20 different guys. I would do it again. It is a pretty darn good feeling to put someone on their best fish ever or show a skilled angler a new technique or new area. I have also come to realize that my fishing spots are not "my spots", even if I discovered them on my own and have fished them for years. Someone has fished the area before me and someone will fish it after me.
