More Dirty Water

22 Aug 2016...Wabasso ...Getting close to the end of the CCA tournament. Started the day at the Pine Island cut. First fish, an 18 inch Trout, picture was bad, camera flash did not work. Small Snook and Snapper fell victim to the Baby Vudu Shrimp. Moved to Hobart Landing, boated another Trout, just under 19 inches. Had another hit, but watched the small Trout wind up as breakfast for a Shark Into a mud bay to look for Reds. Water really dirty, plenty of over sized Mullet cruising, no Reds with them. Hope that poling is not considered to be a strenuous activity, Dr may be a little angry. Finally spotted a cruising Red, first cast, too long. Next cast pretty good, got a quick run at the Baby Vudu, bump, but no pick up. Spotted another and did my usual, hit it in the head. Small Snapper and Snook on the spoil islands. Loggerhead’s channel working pretty good. Three legal Snapper and another 18 inch Trout. The Snapper have pretty much replaced the Jacks. In 3 months I have only hit 4 Jacks and 3 Ladyfish. Back to try for a Sheepshead. Water behind Johns Island runs from coffee with cream to dirty grey. Grass clippings in the water will really help the water quality in the future. No Sheepies today, just more short Snook. Stitches starting to bother, so quit early. All fish today caught on the Baby Vudu Shrimp and Matrix Shad. Sent all the players back for another day.
