I launched from Lover's Key boat launch and headed south around 7:30 am. I haven't had much luck catching trout this year and was determined to bring home a couple for supper. I've probably caught 70% of all the trout I've caught in the area of Estero Bay across the highway from the dog park so I hit all my spots. No trout just a couple of catfish. I even bought some live shrimp as a back-up. The water was clear, and it was the beginning of the outgoing tide. I thought it had the makings of a good fishing day but I was wrong. After a couple of hours of not catching, I started throwing live shrimp and caught a couple of small sheepsheads. During the day I had several nice hits but lost them before I could see them. I traveled quite a distance and decided to start fishing my way back around 12:45. The incoming tide had started and I was able to pretty much drift my way back throwing gulp shrimp into the mangroves. I finally hooked into a nice 18 1/2 inch red about a quarter mile from the boat launch. I decided to end the day on a high note.

I was surprised at how many ski-doos and boats that were still here. I've been a full-time Floridian since July of last year and am looking forward to some summer quiet time on the water.
