Weatherman said it was gonna be beautiful and this time he/she got it right! Windy start to the day, but the winds laid down around 10:00 a.m. or so and I was blessed with a big sky all day. I fished the flats and bights to the East and South of Flamingo, so the tides were not a major concern. This was primarily a scouting trip. Started the day with a few nice trout, headed back to the west to look for reds and snook. I polled several flats where I have found fish before and was pleased to land a nice snook that ate a topwater lure and then 10-12 reds that seemed to love the pink Saltwater Assassin paddle tail. At one spot between two small islands I found 6-8 reds under a mangrove that acted like mangrove snapper! And then, a pot hole with 5-6 snook laid up in it. The water in the pot hole was only a little deeper than the flat, but it was a place for them to lay up. Overall, a really nice day in the Park. Here are a few pictures from the day.

Scouting for what event?
Just a solo trip to check out some places I haven't fished in several years. Probably would not bother if I had someone else on the boat. Sometimes I'll stay in one area most of the day to see how tides/winds affect the area, how fish are entering and exiting the flat, etc. Not too many people have the patience for that!
