Fun 3/4 day with Mike, Mike, and Anthony! It finally cooled off for real here in the last couple days with a chilly cold front. Got into the 60s in the keys an time to pull out the sweatshirts and jeans. The winds had laid down nicely though and it wasn’t an extremely cold situation. We worked around a half dozen areas, though one was much more productive than the rest. The fish were happy we caught a pile of redfish, including a few nice size ones in the 12 – 15 lb range. As it warmed up the snooks came out to play, we caught one real nice 15 lber plus a couple others in the 10 lb range, and a good handful of smaller size ones too. Also a couple black drums. Active morning it was very nice by the time we had to head home, and looks like it’ll stay chilly but no crazy wind so should be good for the fishing now that they’re adjusted to the cool off. Back at it tomorrow.
