Not Bikini Weather
29 Jan 2019...Wabasso/Vero...0645, 42 degrees at the Wabasso Ramp, wind a little more than advertised. Thought for a minute that maybe I should get a PUP with built in thermometer, bad thought, can by a thermometer on Amazon. First stop, Pine Island, nothing happening. Hobart Landing, skipped the island and worked the flat, Burger kind of day, ¼ and ½ pound Jacks with a side of Snapper. Tried the ICW islands, nothing. Little tight today, slid under the Golf Cart bridge at Grand Harbor. Steady action, Jacks, short Snook, a pair of baby Cudas and a Little Ugly. Cudas are early, did not see very many last year. Lost the first Tarpon of the year. Barely made it back out. Estuary/Johns Island, the Big Girls are back. Counted 7 over slot Snook and 2 overslot Trout. No players. Residential canal, hoping for a big Snook. One 16 inch Trout. Oyster Cut, looking for a Red, get a solid hit from a big Snook, 30 yard run, pump a little, 20 more yards and pulled the hook. Poor initial hook set. Searched long and hard for a Red to complete another Family Slam, not today. Baby Vudu Shrimp worked overtime today. All players released for another day.
