Barely Over Snook

2 Oct 2018...  Wabasso/Vero...Water quality, poor at best. Still working on a pattern for the Treasure Coast Marina Tournament Slam.  No  Reds today.   Spent the day pitching docks and working areas that I seldom fish.  Have to check, you never know.  Most of the victims today on the Baby Vudu Shrimp and Rapala BX Minnow.  Started at Pine Island, nothing.  Next stop Hobart Landing, nothing.   Grand Harbor flats pair of barely legal Trout and several shorts.  Johns Island, looking for Sheepshead.  Really tough with dirty water, most of the time, just a grey blob in the water, no hookups.  Did spot a school, no players.  Small Tarpon just bumping, no solid hits.  At one of my favorite spots, light bump, hook set and game time,  Felt like a Round Tail Grouper, until the mad run for the Mangroves.  Fair Snook, for a tournament would have put in the box.  Just barely broke the 32 inch mark.  Would lose at least a half inch in the live well.  Back out pitching the ICW docks,  another slot Trout and more short Snook.  Several Snapper off of the docks, none big enough to measure.  Finish the day at Pine Island, the glass Minnows were thick, nothing chasing.  Needle Fish are getting to be a real problem, way too many today.  All players released for future encounters.
