First time on the water in 2019. InTheSlot12 (Mike) and I launched his Maverick HPX-18 from OR before first light. Weatherman was asleep at the wheel again--brisk winds from the NW blowing in the mild front that was on its way, overcast skies and cool. Outgoing tide until the tide change at about 9:10 a.m. with a negative low on the new moon. We had 10-12 small to slot size reds in the boat before the sun came up good over the east side of Chokoloskee Bay. Moving to some of the points on the rivers, creeks and bays on the inside, we both closed out the inshore slam by about 10:30. Most of the snook were small, but we caught some really nice trout. During the course of the day, we also brought snapper, grouper, jacks, sheepshead, ladyfish and of course a sail cat or two to the boat! Most of the fish were caught on live shrimp on jig heads or soft plastics--paddle tails and jerk shads.
