Cannon Bay to Lostmans Five

Heading down to hunt Snook and small Tarpon Monday through Thursday. Thinking about overnight at Lostman's Five. Anyone able to give me a heads up on how the fishing has been and what to expect? This will be my second trip down. Last time we only caught Snook to 20". Hopefully they have grown a bit since my last visit!

    The snook are starting to transition from spawn towards fall/winter patterns. There are still a lot of fish on the outside, but they are also beginning to move into the middle bays and sloughs. There are definitely still tarpon to be had...we jumped 5 the other day in a few hours. There are lots of the smaller male snook around, but some big girls too. Saw one close to 50" crash through a mullet mud just last week. Very cool. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

    Just was down in lostmans a little over a week ago water was completly fresh by the time we made it into Second Bay caught a few smaller snook up that way but did best out at the mouth getting some good black drum and having some tarpon action on top water.
    Good Luck down there.
