fishin up-date 11/25/14

What to do ? Well hide from the wind and rain, for starters, Not much about the rain, But there is some good fishin out of the wind,  if you have a Small boat or Kayak
Allapatchee Shores Park which is in Punta Gorda,  this will take you to a page about it on  The AllaPatchee ramp is good for most boats un 20 foot with a shallow draft { Flats boats} to be effective here an electric trolling motor is key, Put in and start working down stream towards the trestle  here is the link
There is Snook, and Small Tarpon, the DOA Terror eys are good here, but the small ones for Tarpon and the larger ones for Snook, Another good lures Rat-L-traps and Spoons, This is a nice get away places, has some very shallow spots, but fun to explore, This is a Slat water fishing area, That said I have caught a few Bass which have come down over the dam above this on Taylor Rd. So be ready for almost anything.
I hope you enjoy this spot, If you are a live bait person Shrimp will work fine here, Now Fresh water Shiners are great bait for the Snook here, But Florida being the way it is, to use Fresh water Shinners here you might want to have a fresh water lic, I know it is Salt water, But it is part of the intentional zones, Why I don’t know, I just the messenger, not the Law maker or enforcer. A way to use them and be ok is if checked they say what are you doing Say Snook Fishing, do not say “Fishing” as there is Bass in the area which would require you to have both Salt & Fresh lic, So just say Snook Fishin and be safe.
Good luck and if this confuses you, Welcome to Florida
