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.
