The water has been garbage in Pine Island/Matlacha and a bunch of dead fish, but finally found some.

    Nice work.

    Good job, if you don't mind me asking were you north or south Blind Pass?  From the mouth of the river north to about Blind Pass the water quality as been the worst I've seen in recent memory,the grass flats are looking horrible in some of my favorite areas almost dead, it's a shame. I've managed to get out a few times the last  week and have been disgusted. We've released some decent numbers of slot sized snook but have had to search for them but the redfish are a different story, they have been non existent lately. I've spent many years chasing and trying to pattern reds and can almost always find some decent sized fish but lately nothing over 15-18"

    I live in Naples and regularly make the drive up to Pine Island because the reds are more plentiful up there, but the last two times I have only managed a slot snook and a couple trout. Water was murky with lots of floating dead grass. I hope things are looking up.
