Today, weather would have been a good ad for the local Chamber of Commerce.
Sunny, perfect 74-degrees with a nice breeze blowing.Very pleasant!
We left the dock and cruised to the fishing grounds at a relaxed pace. Brian and Renee from Boston area, and their Naples guests, Michael and Melissa, caught 7 species of fish on ultra-light tackle. The fish they caught were jack, runner, lane and mutton snapper, drum, ladyfish, and ribbonfish.
Good catching guys,
Catching a mixed bag of fish on light, and ultra light spinning tackle, which included jack, runners, mackerel, lane, mutton snapper and losing some nice mystery fish that broke off. I surmise they were grouper.
The action was fast and furious , even thought the boat was doing the real "rock and roll'. The seas that day, were 4-6 foot and building to 5-7'.
The weather was less than favorable on trip day with the winds kicking up to 25-MPH. Seas were posted on NOAA at 5-7 foot with an occasional 9 footer mixed in, just to keep us in the back country. We might have been a little disappointed but plan B turned out to be a relaxing, peaceful, explosive top-water action-packed day with beautiful scenery.
We even saw a manatee or two.
