Chokoloskee 10/29

I went back to the area I fished yesterday in the bay only a little earlier to try and catch the early bite. I was hoping for a repeat of yesterday but the conditions had changed. As soon as I arrived in the area I knew, there was a bit of a breeze and it was warmer out. Around here that’s all it takes sometimes. Spending as much time as I do in these waters it’s no surprise when this happens. I fished some current around the oyster bars and had a couple of nice blow ups using a spook jr. It was still dark out when I heard a fish behind me pop the surface after some baitfish and thinking it was a snook I made a cast to it. I immediately hook up to what turned out to be a nice smaller redfish at 22”, my one and only fish of the day. I had a few more blow up’s using the topwater (which I think were trout) and later had a couple of redfish follow but no takers using a jig and also a swim bait. I headed in around 10 when the sun was up and the tide was slowing down.
