There was rain in the morning and thunderstorms out on the Gulf.

Water clarity was still minimal and the swell stil present.

Probed the drainage pipes and rockpiles and had as first fish a small ladyfish.

At one drainage pipe snook where chasing bait but their activity did not result in a hookup.

Spotted one single snook in the surf but no bites.

It was the beginning of the outgoing tide and the inside of the pass did not produce fish.

When I stood on the jetty I could spot baitfish on the beach despite wind and waves. In the middle of that bait a big snook. My cast was off target due to the wind and landed right on the head of the snook .... goodbye snook.

Fished the beach side with a clouser and landed a puppy red drum.

Had some action going and hooked in to a good fish. The fish made several strong runs but I could put enough pressure on the fish to beach it safely, a nice redfish.

After lunch I fished the breakwater and had again a puppy drum.

A big Spanish mackerel took the clouser when I fished paralell to the beach. Back on my old spot I caught another redfish near the rocks.

Stayed well after sunset and had snook popping bait within a rods length from me. Waited for the snook to go beserk outside the rockpiles and they did.

For about 10 minutes they went crazy at the tip of the jetty but despite feeding frenzy I had no hits from them.

On the famous last cast in the dark I had another big fish on.

From the way the fish fought it must have been another redfish.

When I was about to lead the fish on the beach the hook came out.

Have to try again tomorrow.

That stirred up water sure gets the redfish going. Every day is different, seeing a lot of the bigger mullet going bay. Still miss seeing feeding frenzies further out on the beach.

Have also not run into any pompano and wonder where the big jacks have gone. As this years FL visit is kind off short I fear I have showed up a bit to early for the fall mullet run.
