December 7,09

After the crappy weather over the weekend the forecast for today was pretty decent. Back to sunny skies and into the eighties. With the outgoing tide in the bay I went out early and kayak fished and did some exploring. The first two fish caught were a couple of small barracuda's. I very seldom catch them in the bay. I fished a couple of my spots riding the tide out and ended up fishing an area off of Chokoloskee Pass. I found a new trout spot and caught a couple of dozen of them, a couple were about 20" and a couple were silver trout. Afterwards I poled and sight fished a large open area along shorelines looking for a red but had no luck in finding one. Although I've fished this area in the past I never really had much success but seeing it today on a real low tide there are a few spots that look real promising and I'll be back to explore it more. A few other fish caught today were a couple of small gag groupers, some ladyfish and one jack. I didn't see one red or snook.

On my way back I stopped and took a few pictures of the white pelicans that spend the winter here in the bay.
