    Not sure how it would do on the beach, but I think it would be great for the creeks and other shallow water.

    This Is a Sunset

    Sunrise, not sunset--but still kind of beautiful! Caught the sun coming up over Highland Beach a while back. The bird was a bonus.

    Very nice! I love everything about this one except the Garmin! Has it been re-wired? GLWS.
  13. Another stellar day in the ENP yesterday. Mike (InTheSlot12) ran his 18 HPX though the dark, moonless morning. Low tide at Chokoloskee was at about 0600 and boy was it low! We ran the Lopez into the backcountry and it was very shallow leaving Chokoloskee Bay into the mouth of the river. Fishing in a couple of the bays in the backcountry around mangrove islands, oyster bars and mouths of pinch points when the tide slacked, we whacked the snook--over 30 for the day including two very nice ones (28" and 30") that Mike brought to the boat. We also had a few trout, mangrove snapper and jacks and a husky jewfish. And, the second sawfish in two weeks--what's up with that?? Most of the fish were caught on MriroLure Catch 2000 (Mike's new favorite bait) or 2000 Jr. and soft plastics on jigs. White or white/red seemed to be the color of the day. Small white bait everywhere, so I think anything that matches that profile would probably work. Here are a few pictures from the day. 887C2F4E-F3A2-40D9-8ECB-6E33631A13A6.heic

    Good Day April 18

    Fished again yesterday. Wind was honking, but we were in the backcountry. Another 50+ fish day with tons of smallish snook (plus 3-4 lower slot size), a few nice reds including one that was probably 32"+ lost at boat side (suspect my buddy's leader was abraded from snook and he had not replaced it), few snapper, chunky jew fish. I lost a really big snook when she ran back into the mangroves. I opened the bail, got the boat straight and return to the fight but she broke me off. Should have gotten out of the boat and untangled her so I could resume the fight! Also witnessed this--first suspected frolicking dolphin, then I thought I saw a big fin and figured it might be a huge jew fish. I finally figured out it was two manatee either XXXXING or fighting! Go figure. Also spotted another saw fish but thankfully did not hook up. 2CFEAD5F-75CC-4023-889C-03241F87E862.mov 5FD88CCE-5B25-4826-A427-E7AD0770DEEC.mov
