Tuesday report

Against my better judgement on a holiday week,  my buddy and I decided to fish some mangrove shorelines between CR and Homassassa. Within first hour my buddy hooked an over slot snook on a white fluke but the fish wore thru the leader while he tried to keep him out of the mangroves. I caught an 18" red and a 20" snook. We saw some over slot reds that we couldn't convince to eat artificials. Around 11 we decided to run out to the flotilla and get some scallops. We got enough for a meal and headed in. I was shocked there were no crowds at the ramp around 2 so getting out was a lot less stressful than I had anticipated. Enjoy the holiday, I doubt the ramps will be as easy tomorrow...
