Some Time Off...

6 posts in this topic

Took a few days to work through northern FL down through the Keys.

It's always fun to explore the mangroves and pick your way through the really tight spots, only to discover a big quiet lagoon, or a dead end, LOL!

Did the full deal, from mangroves to open bay, to ocean side.

Lots of Snapper to be had pretty much everywhere.

Was tough to keep the 'Cuda from eating your catch while winding in.

Ocean side was interesting, was using an 8' spincaster with 35# line and got broke off real quick. A larger shark grabbed my Pinfish, thrashed on top and snapped the 35# braid. I paddled the mile and a half back in to get the trolling gear (50# and steel) but got back out and couldn't find the deep hole again. Sun was going down anyway....

Going to launch the yak off Fernandina Beach at high tide today, try for Mr. Sharkey. Little bit rough out there, but what the hay....

But alas, here be thy pics....
