Sunday was basically a bust. Van stayed at Outdoor Resorts so we launched from there and fished the Turner River. The islands at the mouth of the river which can be very productive seemed void of any fish today. We fished our way up the river into Hurdles Creek and part of the upper Turner. Tide was very, very high today and water color was like chocolate milk with hardly any signs of bait fish around.

Chatham River Area
Saturday and Sunday I fished with Van Sayler from St Pete. Saturday was a Yak-Attack trip and Sunday was a paddle out. I had a plan to fish a couple of coves I like to fish around the Chatham River and it turned out to be a good choice, the only problem was there were tons of bait fish around and it was tough to coax the snook to eat our artificials. It was quite exiting as fish were crashing the bait all around us. Van caught a nice Redfish and lost a couple others using topwater plugs.
