Tomorrow I’m (Diehard) going to give it a last ditch effort and go back out in the early morning. I want to check out a different spot and hope for the best. I plan on staying off the water for the holiday weekend.

Choko 9/01 - 9/03
I’ve spent the last three days fishing in the bay hoping to catch a keeper size snook but it just wasn’t to be. I tried fishing early on the last of the outgoing tide to going out midday to fish the top of the incoming. I did catch a few snook but no keepers, up to about 24”. Same situation with the redfish and only today I caught a couple of rat reds. Yesterday I fished with Mike and fished the shoreline almost up to the Lopez River. We ran across some big fish in some muddy shallow water that spooked as we passed over them. Tarpon maybe Sawfish? Not sure. We did see a couple of tarpon roll in the area. For the last couple of days there has been a large gator hanging out around some of the oyster bars in the bay towards Rabbit Key pass area. Mike had an awakening when the big lizard was checking him out a few feet from his boat.
