10K Islands Inshore fishing

Fished today with a gent from Clewiston area out of POI. I again originally wanted to head out, but its just not to be right now for my boat with the current weather patterns. So we focused all our attention inshore. Again the redfish are plentiful and very willing to please. Caught around 10 with the average size of about 22", the largest being a fat 27" fish. Several nice trout, and some very small snook added to the mix. Lots of mangos, with a few slot fish pulled off the oyster bars. A few more gags, goliaths. Tried for tarpon but couldnt connect, did get a nice bull shark though out of that effort. Another great day on the water. Looks like I am off the water tomorrow, then back again Saturday for a day of myself fishing. Can't wait.
A few pics of some of the reds. Once it started raining, the camera got put away.

Several baby snook. Couldnt find any nicer ones today. But its great to see these small ones around.

And then came the storms. He fished thru several, then when I saw a hole to get in, we called it a day. He left happy with a nice bag of fillets.

    Brother you do stay busy. I mostly run out of Everglades City, but sometime will take off from POI. Seems like every time that I am heading that way a car load of your people pull up asking where to find you. The marina there is full of great fishing, and that plus the canal has saved me several times in the past when it was just to bad to go far. My biggest snook came from down by the curves in the channel. The past few mornings, I have seen all the tarpon rolling, and was just trying to stay out of your way. I am fishing saturday by myself I think, so I will probably hit it as I take off. And I just natrually have a confused look, I find that it lowers expectations. Good luck and be careful out there Sunday, might get a bit nautical.

    LOL, At least you have someone else to get out and push your boat back off the bar. Probably see you back out there later this week if your running. My wife and I may go fishing on Sunday or Monday just to goof off.
