I went and fished with buddy Mike L who went and got himself a real job and this was about his last opportunity to get out and kayak fish for awhile. We met in Goodland and I showed him some new areas for future reference to kayak fish. We were on the water for a good 7 or 8 hours. We caught a few decent snook and some good size jacks which made for a lot of fun. The winds picked up later in the day and made it tough at times to fish but all in all it was a nice day out there.
Goodland has some real nice areas to kayak fish and explore. I fish mostly areas in and around Everglades National Park and I am probably spoiled but it’s a shame that in the Goodland backcountry which is controlled by Rookery Bay Estuary Reserve that they allow airboats and jet skis to run around unregulated. Hopefully in the near future they will address this issue and come up with a solution.
