Launched about 11:30 am going west towards Pine Island Sound from Capt. Con's on a rising tide, with Ron whom I had met over at the Matlacha Pier several weeks ago. Hadn't been here recently and thought we might be protected from the wind in the Creek and for the most part, we were. Fished primarily in the mangroves along the main channel where there seemed to be the best water movement. Did not venture very much into the nooks and crannies on the south side of the Creek. Went into Little Bokeelia Bay and fished the north wall headed toward the Sound where I did well last Fall. Did have a few stikes along the way but seemed like probably small snapper. Saw one cruising red and had one, maybe 18" snook, follow. Swarms of small black flying insects indundated us there and we decided to get the h... out of there. Fished our way back to Burgess Bay and caught a smallish trout on the troll. Only fish of the day. Ron had two small trout and a cat on the day. Oh, when will the wind settle so I can get back to Matlacha or Pineland?

It's been tough, wind wise, looks like it's going to calm a bit next week, but with daily storms.

I fish this area regularly and it has been tough lately. Went out yesterday afternoon with a neighbor and stuck a few snook and trout early on the high tide. Was hoping for good fishing on the outgoing tide in the afternoon/evening but the floating algae was so bad, it was impossible to fish with artificial. Reds have been rare in the area with no tailers spotted. We did catch a 33 inch and a 29 inch snook before the season closed but nothing like that since. It has got to get better soon!
