Fishing the flats
We went down to Pine Island Sound Fishing for some snook,reds,and seatrout. It took some time to secure some of the right kind of bait. We looking for greenbacks but it was a slow tide. And it took a while for the tide to start moving so after we got some bait. We we’re fishing with a red and white popping corks rigged with a live bait hook.
After securing some good bait we headed south for some fishing around the islands around the bomb holes. If you didn’t know during WW2 the gov’t used this area for a practice bombing area. So there are a lot of deep hole out there that get full of mangrove snappers and others during the warmer weather.
We moved into the flats and began chasing some snook and redfish. After catching a couple of small snook. Jose caught a nice little snook. After a few minutes went by Jose hooked into a 26 3/4″ redfish.That red took him around the boat twice.
Jose connected with a snook of 4 or 5 lbs. Then we managed to catch some small snook and the bite finished. So that’s about it for this trip. If you would like to see more posts like these logon to www.countryboystacklebox.com
We tried some fishing for seatrout with CBTB popping corks. We rigged one with live bait and one with a Scorpion jig. We managed to catch only a few small undersized trout. The trout just didn’t want to co-operate. The Pine Island Sound fishing has been good through out the years.
So get to Pine Island and do some fishing. And remember please pick up your trash. Florida is being loved to death it has it’s natural beauty but is being changed rapidly. So we can all do our part to keep our waterways clean.
