Spent the early part of 8/5/06 at Flamingo. Seems to be a twice a month event.
The weather and the fishing was scorching hot. Clear skies 'till noon. I met my friend Reelrush and new fishing buddy Kneedeep, both from the KFS.com site.
Since the ramp to the bay is still closed, we saw no powerboats within a mile or two of where we fished and all was quiet. Kneedeep was first up with a hard fighting jack. Welcome to the Derelicts
The rest of the morning consisted of trout, hooked but missed tarpon in the 30lb to 50lb range, a bunch of followers (might have been reds) and the ever-present sea-kitties.
Right at high tide the bait was busting all over the soon to be bare sandy flats east of the channel out of the marina. I just had to investagate. It seems that a group of small sharks was so intent on reducing the baitfish population, they didn't appear concerned with me and once even tried to get between my yak and the sandy bottom.
Fun was had by all.
