Launched just before 6:00 am heading in general direction of western cell (?) tower following the eastern wall. Did not throw until first light. It was low tide with high about 11:45. Moved from one island point to another. By 8:00, had a slam, including a 30" red. The snook and the trout were on the smallish side. Circled several of the islands to the west, including Josslyn and Little Josslyn switching between topwater (until about 10:15 as it was pretty overcast) and a white paddler-z. Ended the day about 11::30 with five reds, four trout (all on the dinky side), four snook, (largest 23"), a baracuda and a cat, in addition to jumping two tarpon. Aside from maybe one each, trout, snook and red on topwater, everything else was caught on the paddler-z. This was my "go-to" last year but has not been very productive for me recently, until today! Water remains very murky for this time of year with supposedly minimal releases from Lake "O".

Great report and good fishing John- thanks.

Finally after months of searching, I found a few rolling tarpon in the north spreader canal. Hooked, landed and released one about 30" by educated guess. Peak high tide had just starting going out about noon.

Many casts near docks but have not been able find a snook in those canals yet.

That was a pretty good morning, John. Still going thru PT for my shoulder, hope to see you out there in a month or two.
