1000 Islands Cocoa Beach 01-15-17

Beautiful weather this weekend, but not enough time to launch my boat as I was committed to fundraisers and other events with my girlfriend. As luck would have it, my buddy Ronnie invited me on his boat for a short Sunday evening trip allowing me to get on the water for the first time in weeks. Although we had not fished the 1000 island area in over a year, luck was on our side this evening. We broke out the light tackle (1000 - 2500 sized spinners) and pitched shrimp and Berkley gulp jigs tight to the mangroves. We had a blast catching and releasing black drum, trout, and redfish. Final tally was 7 black drum, 4 slot trout, and one redfish; pretty good for two hours on the water.
