April is finally here. The month of transition. This schould be the month you guys start to find some bass. I do look forward to reading some great fishing moments this month. Down here the wind has allowed some fishing days. I did a unique flat trip with a friend who poles a canoe, yes POLES a canoe. I have to admit I was very cautious about trying this. However it was a blast. Gives a perspective that I was not aware of. We did not get any shots at permit or bonefish but I did have 2 decent shots at fairly large redfish. Found out they are way more skittish in very shallow (probably 8 - 10 inches of) water. Learned much about some mannerism of barracuda that I never thought about. Cobia have been the main fish we have had. Still haven't had another shot with the fly except for that one last month. We found these guys in a deep 30ft crevasse outside Ryder Key.
My neighbor & fishing partner Bert with the first one. Notice name of boat in background.
They were so think even I caught one. Released 2 others. Water temp 76, last of the incoming light SW wind. Okay guys lets see some stripers.
