Great winter Variety

I've fished inshore and offshore in alot of different areas and regions around Florida and on thing that has me so in love with 10k is all the different species Inshore that can be caught consistently and actually be able to target. There are so many ways to catch the same species as well and different patterns they follow so catching doesn't really ever get boring.
This winter has been no different. as we know the the cold water makes for some slower days catching our favorite species like Snook, Reds and Tarpon even though I have had some great trips on those species this winter. Pompano, trout, sheephead and Grouper just to name a few have created some very good trips while the regular targeted species i found a Lil challenging to find or bite. We have had some absolutely Beautiful weather this winter as well I hope you all have been able to capitalize on fishing those days.

I Also had an opportunity to bring a news crew down towards Lostmans River and saw the dead False Killer Whales first hand. It's crazy to me to think these mammals come up with a specific location to go and just die, very wierd.9fae336bbb6ddf29ebde5235bbde5bf5.jpgf6c5db43dffa26097654065e8cf77a02.jpg
Have an Incredible 2017 Everyone!

    As emotionally involved as we get about dolphins or whales stranding themselves.... folks need to remember that they only come ashore like that when they're dying (they don't die because they're stranded - it's the opposite...).

    Last Thurs.and Fri.probably best two days of fishing in some time.Two day total,
    25 trout kept 9,2 reds,6 snook and 1 flounder all in same bay around Goodland.
    One possible reason,this Mon.barometer read 29.30 whereas it normally reads
    29.90-30.00.That big of a drop would indicate a hurricane is pending if this was
    summer.

    Outlaw nice meeting you too. I'm glad I saw you it reminded me how many ppl are on this forum and that I've been seriously slacking on writing posts.
    I was under that impression as well Bob. How they pick where to go is pretty wild. These were a totally different species than the pilot whales that ended up a mile or so away last year.
    Yep 10k barometer changes are good in my book as well.

    Those whales are not dead or stranded. They are following the evolutionary process and have moved onto land where one will sprout legs and the other wings.

    I'm getting the red tide reports (karenia brevis) from the FWC each week now... I'm wondering - with all the red tide issues from Sarasota down to just north of Naples whether that had anything to do with with the whale-kill... Years ago we'd never expect red tides this time of year.
