Chokoloskee 8/3&5

I ended up getting out in the bay twice during the week. Tuesday I got an early start and I headed to an area in the northern part of the bay. After around a mile and a half paddle getting to where I planned to fish another fisherman pulled in and started fishing where I was headed. I couldn't believe it after the long paddle but within fifteen minutes he raced off. As I got there I could see fish working the oyster bars and I caught my first redfish on my second cast so I was now happy again. I concentrated on the area for awhile, it was a little slow but I caught a few smaller snook and picked up another nice red. Around mid morning I started working my way back and along the way picked up a couple of nice trout around a couple of oyster bars in the current. With how hot the weather's been lately I was back in by noon.

Thursday morning I was able to get out for just for a couple of hours. I hit a couple of my usual spots and today it was very tough going. After an hour or so I picked up a nice red fish. I jumped around fishing a couple of spots and then see a large snook working near an oyster bar feeding on finger mullet by the mangroves. First cast he goes after my top water plug and misses. Next cast he chases the plug again and misses a couple of times. I figure one more cast and he's actually still there and again misses. I think I had a mentally challenged snook here. He was gone after that or maybe just lost interest. Crazy fish!
