Decided to celebrate Veterans' Day in the Everglades National Park. Caught the end of the outgoing tide inside one of the river mouths and started the day with a couple of snook. Mike brought a rat red and a chunky grouper to the boat before we ran up river into the backcountry to fish the mangrove shorelines of a couple bays that I like (and to stay out of the S/SW wind that was picking up).

Snook were plentiful in the back, but none larger than 26". I lost two more brand new MirrOLures to the grove snatchers but had fun landing more than a dozen on a Catch 2000 or Slayer SST's rigged on keel weighted hooks or jigs.

The transition to fall fishing is upon us and I fully expect the fishing to steadily improve as the air temp and humidity moderate and the water temperatures drop. Great time to be in the Glades!
