Went out this morning, sanibel/ captiva. Was nice, got out there around 530, tarpon were rolling, bait was everywhere. greenback and threadfins is what i saw. I threw a popper and swimmer till 20 minutes after sun up... just a couple swirls, no commitment. Switched to pencils and much of the same, as I was changing to a t-hex, I saw the strangest thing ever, it was about 5-6 feet in length and was in a constant serpentine "S" patternconfused.gif. It swam straight in at me then made a baring towards the north. I was about 60-70 feet from the shore and moved at a quick walking pace. I threw the 2oz t-hex at it a couple times trying to get any kind of hit or foul hook, I got resistance twice but nothing solid. What I could see was 2 fins above the water, about 3 feet apart each other. Anyone ever seen anything like this beforeheadscratch.gif. The other strange thing was after the sun came up, I could see that i was wading in thigh deep water filled with jelly fishcwm31.gif, i didnt get stung thoughhighfive.gif. Also on a side note if you do decide to go out in the area, there were more 8"-1.5' sting rays resting right in the wash that I have seen in years. I got 32 to move out of my way on my 2 mile jaunt.

 

Here are a couple cell picts of this morning..
