Trout Really Picked up

7 Feb 2019...Wabasso/Vero...Started at Pine Island, nothing.  Hobart Landing Island a grand mixture, Puffers, Ladies, Jacks, short Snook and short Snapper.  Nothing on the flat in the morning.  Way home in the afternoon, Pompano, Blue and Big Lady.  Had a Sailcat try to eat the Blue.  Sharks got the Blue and Lady after release.  Saw a small Tarpon roll in the Morning.  Plenty amount of clearance at the Golf Cart Bridge.  Mostly small Snook , Snapper and Jacks.  Did get a low slot Trout.  First of 8 on the day.  Smallest 15.5 “, biggest 21 “.  Channel on the way out, loaded with short Snapper, couple of keepers in the mix.  Bridge still, a lot of small Snapper. Spoil island, a 19 inch Trout.   McCullers cove, as always looked good.  Found a low slot Red, and nothing else.  Estuary, nothing.  Johns Island/Vero, Short Snook and fat Trout. Lost the first Baby Tarpon of the year.  Flipping the Baby Vudu to a deep in the Mangrove pocket.  Bump, run, jump and gone.   Spotted a Sheepie in the Mangroves, flip Baby Vudu in, solid hit, not the fish that I saw, but a  4.5 # Ugly.  Head for Home.  Stop at Hobart Flat.  Work an edge with a Flat Rap, hit like I have not seen, back out of water, fighting almost like a Jack.  Finally get a close look, a lost Pompano.  All fish released for another day.
