Ten Thousand Islands June 15

Recommended Posts

Pleased to have Captain Tom Ross join me for a trip to Chokoloskee to fish the Ten Thousand Islands yesterday. Weather forecast was sketchy for the afternoon so we knew we'd have to get it done in the morning. We launched at Outdoor Resorts at 6:15--low tide at Chokoloskee was at 8:39 a.m., so we'd have just a couple of hours of falling water. Turned out to be a solid day, fishing no farther than 4-5 miles from the ramp. Tossing top water lures, soft plastics, jigs with live shrimp or GULP! shrimp--when we found moving water and structure we found fish. Reds, snook, trout, juvenile Goliath Grouper, mangrove snapper, whiting, jack crevalle, and more. Saw a dolphin jump all the way out of the water like he was at Sea World. Made it back to the ramp around 1:30, just before the skies opened up. Quite a day. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Uh ohhhh…..I feared the jewfish would show up in better numbers this summer! We caught more of them last summer than I had in several years. They're making a comeback. 🙄
