2/9/20 February Backcountry Everglades Fishing Adventure

Got out with the Kentucky crew today, Don, John, Jeff, and Boyd.  Winds were howling a bit but nothing the Contender Bay couldn’t handle.  We tucked up in the creeks, it was dead low tide early on and a little scary getting into some areas.  Slow start but once the tide started to trickle in, the fish did too.  Picked away at some snook and redfish, then after 3 or 4 stops got into a little flurry of them catching maybe a dozen or so.  Next stop we got into a pretty hot snook bite probably caught three dozen fish in an hour and a half or so.  Nothing super huge but the numbers added up by the days end probably close to 50 fish.  Wind really started kicking on the ride home a good 25 mph or so.  But nice to put up numbers like that with the wind machine cranking hard.  Back at it tomorrow looks like similar conditions.
