Chokoloskee 12/27

I wanted to get out and see how fishing conditions were in the bay this morning. I launched before sunrise and made my way to some oyster bars I like to kayak fish. The tide was super low but would be incoming all morning. Throwing a topwater plug, a zara spook jr, I got a few hit and misses before hooking up with a nice trout. The trout measured just under 24", a real nice size for around here. Fishing was a little slow and I fished this area for a while longer before moving on to another area. I switched to a Rapala Twitchin'rap and picked up a small red and a couple more trout, again nice sizes around 20". Other than a couple of small jacks and ladyfish that would be about it for the morning. The winds picked up and the tide was just about in so I called it around 11 and headed back to my place. I didn't spot any snook or larger reds today. There were a lot of sharks around.
