Fishin up date 09/15/17
Decided to drop the boat in and take a look-see out of BSI down the Alligator and east side, I’m sure your familiar with the lyrics “same as it ever was” , well that pretty much sums it up except the dirty water that was just clearing a tad after the rains.
Saw two or three juvi tarpon in BSI canals on the way out, not enough to try, everything looked OK on the way out except a couple collapsed seawalls and a missing pool screen or two, not much debris in the water, even back in the nearby east side mangroves. The water is not very pretty though.
Stopped and fished the first 100yds or so of poachers cut, caught two or three peanut snook and had a couple snapper try to eat a zoom fluke tail
Ran south inside the bar about 1/2 mile and fished another 1/2 mile of points with zoom fluke and a 2/0 streamer fly, fly did best but caught several small snook on both and of course had one of the notorious follow to the boat explosions and missed, always a monster, lol
Saw one tiny tarpon roll, lot of mullet inside, no jacks or other critters seen and didn’t try outside the bar, it was just a quick look
Seems the bottom has definite humps and bumps that weren’t there before the storm. The Alligator channel has an area I marked 4.5′ during extreme high tide (went from 9.5′ – 4.5′ ) and I’m not sure if a marker is missing or not? Never paid much attention to the markers and only boating here since July
Nothing exciting to report
Looking forward to your next fishing report for the rest of the harbor and surrounding areas
