Default My Findings last night.

So the wind was nice and I figured I would go do a little scouting for some flat fish although I think the water is still a little cool for them to be around.

I went to three of my local areas, I counted over 300 flounder "stopped the counting game I was playing" all in the 10-11inch range haha... Saw a few around 15-16" didn't bother to stick them.

TLDR: There are flounder but small, no decent numbers of even small/medium size fish still need the water to warm up.

Fun Fact: I pulled up on a creek mouth that was very skinny on a hard incoming tide with lots of rocks/oysters around it and there lay the biggest snook I've ever seen in person.. I would guesstimate 30lbs and around 40inches? Tried to get the phone out to take a photo water was like glass, but he spooked.

Not possible to have a snook up here now and I have really never heard a confirmed report of one here. He is at the same latitude but has the Gulf Stream pouring hot water on him all the time.

There have been several caught over the years in this area. If I remember right, some guy caught one last year in WINTER in his kayak in Pensacola. It was posted here on PFF.

Actually I've got everything I need for the HPS setup, running 6 150's, however I'm waiting on my Father to get back into town as he will be the one welding the brackets on the boat for me.


Stuck 30 last night with the 500 halo's.. Saw some giant snook to, was a good night except the wind.

I noticed less ripple glare when I switched to HPS. I think you will like them, be warned that the first few times you use them you might not like them. They seem dim to me because of the color of the light. After your eyes get used to the yellow tint you will be amazed at how well they actually do work.

Wheres the pics of the 30? And what is a snook?
