Sarasota Bay; 4/27
Put in at 10th street at 6:00 am. Very slow start, however it included a trout over 20" and one 19 31/32":wink. Both were hooked deep on swim baits so I kept them.
I moved to water that I've never fished before. Had a nice wind from the South and drifted a long West side mangrove bank. Had a couple decent snook on and measured one at 27". Also had a few chases to the boat.
Threw into a spooked bait fish pod, got hit hard and lost a spoon on 25 lb. leader. A few more trout.
Lunch, a hamburger and beer.
Drifted the mangroves where I left off. A nice red fish, completing the inshore slam. A few more trout.
Pulled out at 3:00 pm.
Not a bad day. I'm looking forward to returning to the new water I fished. Hopefully I can work it with early morning top waters next time.
