Went out yesterday with Capt Bob. Left the ramp at 630am. Beautiful AM. Great water quality. Grass appears to be coming back with a vengeance.
Bob got a new boat. Spyder 19 with a 140 Suzuki. Great ride, great set up.

Once again he has bait wells full of palm sized croakers. Once again we get limit trout with a 24" as the big one. Must have caught over 20 fish.

However, we got zero reds and no snook. A 20 count, while that seems like alot, usually on these trips its over 50 with non stop action.

So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

I was up in Mims Saturday (10th). Water clarity was gin clear. Paddled south to the NASA bridge and came across an alarming number of dead horseshoe crabs. Thousands and thousands of them washed up on the shoreline. Not sure what happened or if that is a normal occurrence this time of year? Then paddled back north about 4 miles past my launch spot.

I covered a lot of water. Saw lots of reds, none were interested in what I presented, not even a flinch. All the snook were tucked up in the shadows. Saw a couple 35-40" snook bolt out from the mangroves. They were so tight it was impossible to make any kind of cast. Hell, I didn't even know they were there so it didn't matter anyways! I did see lots of micro pockets of grass and I mean micro, like single strands spread very, very far apart along with baseball size pockets of growth. It's trying to make a comeback but if we get another bloom....

Roundtrip paddle was about 8-9miles.

Cool to hear about the big snook, sucks to hear about the horseshoe crabs as I have heard they(and puffer fish for some reason) are signs of good water quality.....their blood is valuable for scientific research.....hope no way killed them for that reason???
