Blues and Cats

11 Feb 2021...Wabasso/Johns Island...Started the day at Hobart Landing, first fish a barely legal Trout.  Second a 19 inch Snook. Both on the Baby Vudu Shrimp.  Plan for the day was to work the flat and the edge of the channel, hoping for a Spanish Mackerel, none in the AM, but rolled one in the PM.  Morning was slow, baby Blues and Ladies.  Made the long run to Grand Harbor, good clearance under the golf Cart Bridge, rising tide, little tight on the way back out.  Fun time, overgrown Jacks and Snapper.  Hit a pair of baby Cuberas and several legal Mangroves.  Short Snapper in the channel and a small Cuda.  Moved to Stingray cove looking for a Red, not happening today, no cover and clear water.  Estuary one little Trout.  Vero/Johns Island, a few U - 2s.  Johns Island Bridge nothing, clean water hindering the catching.  Back to the Hobart Flat.  Wind and tide made for a good drift.  Jumped off a pair of Ladies on topwater.  Next one was not fun,hit close to the boat, high jump, threw the plug.  Bad news: it came straight to the boat and buried the back treble in my leg.  No problem, down pressure and ripped it out.  Not to worry Tetanus shot up to date.  Shifted over to a swim bait on 4 # test, first victim, a 4 pound Sailcat.  Then a pair of Blues.  Finished off the day at the South side of the Causeway.  Two pound Blue on the swim bait.  Jumped off several Ladies.  Watched a few fish go over the railing.  Did not see any Pompano.  All players released for future encounters.
