North IRL - 2.9.20

Launched the skiff at Jones Ave. Ramp around 6:30AM. Slow bite. Went 7-7 on trout. 5 were under 14" 2 were over 17". The larger of the slots -- 18.5 was full of worms. The black drum I caught in the IRL about 2 months ago was also full of worms. Am I just getting unlucky? White worms -- not black. Long--about 3-4" if they don't break when pulling out of the meat.

Anyways, glad the trout bite was decent. Only fished 4 hours. No reds or snook though. Saw a few tarpon, couldn't get any takers on my gulps.

Tight Lines,

    They cook just fine.  Added protein.

    Not joking, been eating them for years.  Good thing you don’t see all the worms they pull out of store bought fish.  Bear and some wild pork had a lot more worms you can’t see.  IMO, don’t waste the fish.

    How does the water quality look in that area? Any seagrass?

    The worms are parasites....they are harmless to humans.   You can pick them out if you are the squeamish type...
