Well, what can I say, The winds are still blowing. Seems like it's been nonstop for at least the last month or so. At least the day temperatures are now more moderate in the seventies and eighties and low humidity which has been nice.It's been tough fishing the bay areas because of the winds but the couple of times that I managed to get out there were some decent fish caught, including mostly Snook, trout and a couple of nice redfish.
I kayak fished some of my places in the backcountry which offers a lot of protection from the winds but that also has been a bit challenging. From all the recent rains that we've had has kept the water levels very high. Fishing around mangroves has been almost impossible. I still managed to catch a few decent size snook and a couple of juvenile tarpons. Fishing these areas will improve again when the water levels drop and air temperatures as we move into the winter months.
Below are a couple photos of Ken and his son Tim. They fished with me last week on about the only day it wasn't windy. A nice day and a few nice fish were caught.

A new issue of "Flats Pirate" Magazine came out the other day and has a new article I wrote. You can check that out at Kayak the Glades .
