Vero to Grand Harbor
28 Mar 2018...Vero to Grand Harbor...Checking some areas out prior to May tournament. Slow run North through Rag Bagger Row. Fished a cut that has never produced. One Cocktail Blue, 3 short Trout and short Snapper galore, still not what I would consider productive. Next stop the Estuary South, short Trout and Ladyfish. Johns Island was a waste today, nothing. Grand Harbor, tide dropped enough to clear the bridge. Tarpon crashing bait, by the time I could get back she had ducked back through the culvert. Only other thing playing, Jacks. Decided to check out a few spots for the May tournament. Docks in the Cache Cay area have always produced Snook, one of the docks was always good for 10 to 15 Snook, and a slot could be found. 3 first place Snook were caught under it, none mine. The top docks were decimated by the storms. A lot of the docks have not been rebuilt/repaired. Couple of short Snook and a 3 # Sheepshead. Sheepshead was special, had an audience. Lady wanted to see it, foreign, so probably vacationer. Whole family came out to see it and were amazed when I released it. Moved to the South of the Barber St Bridge. Snook hole, counted 5 Sharks. The Carp are still there. Maybe this year I will catch one. Most of the fish today were caught on the Matrix Shad, Magneto and the Baby Vudu Shrimp. All players released.
