Sandfly and Pavilion Key

Had a great weekend fishing again with Van Sayler from St. Pete. Saturday we fished around the Sandfly Pass area and Sunday out around Pavilion Key. Between the two days we had the opportunity to fish a lot of different situations. Both days were very warm but easy to handle with a slight breeze most of the time. Van got his first snook on this trip along with a couple of other species including a Bonnethead and a Spinner Shark. Where we fished we didn't get into any redfish but another couple, Tony and Jean, that joined us on Sunday did catch a couple when they paddled into a school of them. Other fish caught were some trout and snappers.

Fishing a small swimbait in and around large schools of baitfish I hooked up and caught a nice size snook over 36"and weighed around 14lbs !

Lots of migratory birds around and we saw a few loggerhead turtles, a few Spotted Eagle Rays, manatees and pretty much the norm lately, dolphins.
