I have not been able to get to the salt of Pine Island lately so will pass the algae for now.

Fishing the Northwest Cape Coral canals as much as I can from shore. Starting to hook bass and bluegills on a 2" long streamer fly with big plastic eyes.

Sounds like fun! What about using some popping bugs like thes from Big Boys?

bass poppers are the most fun but, so far, they are showing no interest in top water

that should change as the summer heat takes hold

Don,

Thanks for the heads up on Big Boys Tackle. I did not know it was there.

I will stop by their shop and check out the latest gear.

They just recently opened. Check them out! I have been sight fishing snook on the beach in Bokeelia using a topwater gurgler fly. What a blast! Like bonefishing with a guide in the Bahamas!

Are you using a foam gurgler for the Bokeelia Beach snook?

What color?

Yes. Caught fish on both white and black. They seem to like the white now that the water has clouded a bit. Got to say, it can be frustrating at times with fish following and putting there nose right on the fly, even giving it a little nudge and not taking. Other times, they will come from 5 feet away with a violent slam!

I will try the white and dark gurglers for my brackish water snook fishing.

I will be fishing the Sanibel beach soon and there I have spotted snook l and cast to them but mostly just blind casting into the trough. I use Deceivers and Schminnows out of habit.
