Sanibel water report

How does the water look around Sanibel these days? The discharge from Lake O muddying up the waters?

    Fished Blind Pass yesterday. SW wind all week made the water milky. It followed all the way in with the incoming. Managed 2 snook, one 41". As I went over the bridge back, the outgoing water was black all the way to the lighthouse but I couldn't see if it made the bend on to the beach.

    Thanks for the report. Hate to hear the water is affected like that again.

    Sunday water was nasty all the way to the lighthouse but after the bent it was pretty clear on the beach .

    Good deal. I'm ready to catch some fish and enjoy the beach. I heard we got a lot of sand back out in front of our condo.

    Franklin was at 7370 CFS yesterday......still too high. It needs to be half that for the water to start clearing up.
