Chokoloskee - Saltwater Fishing Report

Meaning the trout fishing.

Wendy with her first Redfish.

Their excellent eating with a Butter,Cream,Caper sauce, deep fried,ON the Grill,or any way you want.
The red fishing is still on, but this wind and cold just doesn't want to stop.
As I sit here @ 5:30 I can hear it blowing hard, and the wind chimes are singing,which my nighbors hate,Too Bad.
Yesterday,we lost count on the trout,saw a few tarpon roll,and still couldn't get a snook strike.It was overcast in the morning with slight rain, so site fishing was out of the question,so we hammered the trout in 4 different locations.
Buy the time the sun was shining,and the water slicked off it was a 3.6 tide.not good for gulf side site fishing.But after an hour or so into that is when every now and then a Tarpon would roll.
Their was no need to try to fish them when only 1 here and their would roll,we tried doa sinkers anyway with no success.
I've had some pretty brave soles this past week considering the weather.
