I launched at The Fishtrap Marina at 7:30 am and headed west under Bonita Beach Road. The first hour or so was very slow. I caught 1 small Jack. I was focusing on the many oyster bars and some deeper channels. I finally caught a small redfish followed by 3 ladyfish and a smallish snook. I then fished my way east towards fish trap bay and caught 2 more snook and a couple of mangrove snappers.

As I was calling it a day I slow trolled a paddle tail close to the mangroves and spotted 20-30 snook in a small bay right next to me. I immediately peddled away from the mangrove so I could start casting. I could still see them bunched up and moving slowly. I cast about 10 times and couldn't get them to bite. Finally, I hooked into a nice one. It made a turn and a big swirl took some drag and went airborne spitting my lure. It was a good 30 inches. The snook scattered after that and I headed in.

The water was in beautiful shape, no dead fish, and I saw a lot of surface action during the day.
