Report - Estero Bay

Pretty quiet lately so I thought I would post a report from Sunday 8/22.  Took my son and some friends out to Estero Bay and fished the islands around new pass and East.  2 people casted paddle tails and the others had live shrimp on popping corks.  Trout were pretty slow but ended up with 2 around 18 inches and some shorts.  Caught a few small snook and one small red.  The highlight of the trip was a large pompano.  Didn't measure but was at least 20 inches.  Caught a few mangroves as well.  Water quality was pretty good with no signs of red tide for now.  Plenty of ladyfish, catfish and other bycatch.  All together a productive day on the water!  Sorry no pics.  Try to post later.
