On water by 6:30 am heading west toward Black Key. It was a low tide with high about 12:30 pm. Water very tannic and murky; could not see the bottom very easily. On the backside of Black Key, had two reds break me off. Had another red strike but did not hook himself. Called it a day about 12:00 with one 14" trout on the day.

On the way to Black Key just before sunrise, had a HUGE boil just left of center of yak. Thought for sure, I was going over. Never saw what it was. Didn't appear to be a manatee. At the end of the day, on the way in, about 200 yards from the launch, tried to pick up a popping cork. As I got within 5 yards or so, it took off. I tried to approach a second time with the same result. Overall, an interesting morning.

I had something big boil on me on the way out one morning. It spun around, and tail pushed all the water. I was thinking sleeping shark at the time. Really gets your attention in the low light conditions. Tough day with the reds.

Krash, typically the area we are covering is too shallow you would think for manatee. When I've experienced it, it's been like a fish is surprised, turns sharply, and off they go. Manatees don't seem to turn much, and just go off straight, with a tail kick, after you've glided over their back.

Sailor: From your description, sounds like the same fish.

Here it could have been a Croc or Gator, about the only sleeping Shark would be a Nurse Shark, the rest have to keep moving. When diving we see Nurse Sharks wedge themselves in a spot and sleep.
