Haven't gone out much over the past couple of weeks. When I have gone, it's been to Pineland or Matlacha and the catching has been less than stellar, a couple of small snook and trout on each outing. Water clarity has been very dark and the temperature/humidity have been unbearable. Usually in by 12:30 pm or even earlier.

Yesterday, launched at GCK about 6:00 am heading north along east side of Pass. There was a slight breeze and temperature was comfortable. Water clarity remains very tannic. Hit my usual spots with minimal success although I did manage two small snook, a 15" fluke and a 27" red on the morning. Saw only a couple of other kayak fishers and hardly any boats on the water.

Good to see the reds are still there. Trying to get out this weekend, or early next week, weather permitting.

Oh, forgot to mention that I have been seeing several small tarpon both in Matlacha Pass as well as in Pine Island Sound. I was able to jump one a week or so ago on a jig with a white paddler-z in P I Sound and most recently one in Matlacha Pass on a Zara Spook Junior.

I jumped two on the way to Big Jim Creek on the 4th. They were all over the place for about two hours.
