Friday the 13th., not unlucky!!
Checked out a new spot today on the flats at the mouth of the Anclote river. Overcast, dead calm on a super low tide. Sat on the flats and just watched schools of redfish and jacks working the shallow water. Threw the fly rod on a few reds and trout, crushed the jacks on live shrimp and paddle tails. Got a surprise when I landed my 1st permit, sadly it wasnt on the fly...maybe next time. I think between me and my buddy we caught 30 or so jacks, trout and reds.

Mike, looks like a great time. What's with the coat? I was in just a flannel long sleeve shirt fishing at 7000 ft on the Jemez River this week. It was sunny and in the mid 50s. I know Florida with that humidity really feels cold in the 60s without the sun but was it that cool already? Or are you just going soft on usLaugh?

Remo,
are you familiar with sanibel island? I'm heading there the middle of January with the family and plan on doing some fishing. I've only fished the flats around macdill AFB in tampa about 4 years ago and know nothing of the west coast side out of fort meyers.
any info would be appreciated
thanks

I prefer staking the boat and fly fishing but when the opportunity arises, I will throw whatever Wink

I have not fished Sanibel since I moved here but I have fished it in the past, January is going to be a slow time, no snook on the beach, I know there is a lagoon on the backside that may produce some fish. I would throw top waters on the gulf side in the mornings and the just the standard artificial a and live bait in the day. If you have a car I would drive to the north end of Sanibel where it connects with Captiva island and fish the pass.....but I am just grasping....check google and YouTube and you should get a better idea for January.
