Quick Trip Fri June 16
Launched @ 6:45 with water at 82.6.
Headed to the beach anticipating some decent topwater action.
Nope! 2 jack crevalles and 2 other minor blow-ups.
Water was very clear. Looked nice. To bad it did not contain any fish.
Off to the SW corner of Cape Romano.
Threw my tackle box at them.
Nothing but a 2-foor blacktip shark on a white swim bait.
Into the Morgan River. Throwing a blue Yo-Zuri, shrimp/cork and white bucktail Spro's.
Nothing on the Yo. Shrimp produced a small sheepshead and a mangrove snapper.
Bucktail tallied a 14" trout and a 17" trout.
Back towards the ramp and small mangrove island with good water movement with the outgoing tide.
Throwing into 8 feet water (away from the mangroves) produced 4 catfish.
Something was popping the small baitfish against the mangroves.
Threw the Spro in there and got an 18" snook and a decent jack.
A few minutes later, tossed the Spro back into the mangroves and saw a nice long silver flash.
Line went tight and after a nice fight, a 29" snook found it's way to the deck.
A few pics and back she went.
Now approaching 11am and a 2-1/2 drive, I put it on the trailer.
Slow day. HOT day with minimal wind.
No topwater but the snook at the end made it worth the trip.
Till next time, be safe. See you all out there!
