Fall Snook and Redfish
Report Date: September 19, 2012
More than forty boats were involved in the Take A Soldier Fishing event this past weekend. It gives us a chance to give something back to our men and women in arms. Donations and a silent auction garnished funds as a gift to the Wounded Warriors Project as well.
Everyone caught plenty of fish and had a blast. Redfish and trout were the main quarry. There was no shortage of either. Small redfish to slot sized redfish were caught. There are small to medium snook on just about every point.
Bait was easy to get so most of us were throwing scaled sardines to the bushes. Redfish, snook, trout, snapper, and jacks were accommodating.
We started with a falling tide that seemed to drag on forever in the Ten Thousand Islands. We scored a 22 inch red at the first spot on the first cast. After catching six small redfish, we finally scored a fish that went 25 inches.
We had a blast with small to medium snook all day. Jacks, snapper, and ladyfish kept us busy at every spot as well.
Water temperatures are starting to cool a bit. Larger snook and redfish are near the passes and beaches. The action is starting to heat up. Don't miss the fall migration run. book a trip now.
