Matlacha (12:30 - 9:30)
Yep, I went for the 3peat!!
Conditions weren't the best but why not! Still caught quite a few...but spread over a 9 hour period.
Bites were light today and required a constant lookout on your rod. All you got was a little nibble and one or two bumps. Be ready to set or lose your bait!!!
Todays catch included sk8s, cats, sailcats, snapper, ladyfish, trout and 1 blue crab! Still can't believe I landed the crab...became pier entertainment!!!
Crowds were in and out all day. Met a number of locals just waiting for the snowbirds to leave. With resent catches...they're speculating 2 more weeks for things to be in full swing
. With the resent luck I'm having...I can't wait to see it when its good!!!
Red jighead with chartreuse twister tail(tipped with shrimp) has been a "hot ticket". Have seen a cobia caught with redhead and white body. Also had luck today with gotcha-plug. Only one place around here had any in stock...unfortunately it wasn't my favorite. Made due and was rewarded with some action on a day when things were slow(or at least for some of the others!
