I was referred the mornings charter from a good friend, and met Doug and his party at the boat ramp at 951 right on time. The morning was still chilly for South West Florida standards in the low 50s and the tide was low. So we started fishing in a canal at a bridge where we had some water depth and good current starting to flow with the incoming tide. We caught a few small snapper and Doug caught his dinner, a nice fat sheepshead.

We continued working our way around catching a few small snapper and sheepshead. The best action of the day was in a small creek where we caught more little mangrove snapper and several acrobatic ladyfish. Before we knew it, the 4 hour trip was over and another 10,000 Islands trip was under our belts.
