  1. Decided to hit the Alafia yesterday, Sunday, and try my luck. Water temp was 67 at 7am when I launched, but got into the low 70s. Tides weren't great, but they were better than I expected. Water never got very high, but it didn't get very low either. Just a quick report on how I did, which wasn't great. Sure were a lot of boaters out yesterday, which made it pretty tough working docks with the waves crashing on shore and the boat rocking. The timing of your casts has to be spot on. Just after launching, a guy comes up in his sweet Pathfinder 2200. Turned out to be Mark (sylvestermax). We chatted a bit and talked fishing. It was very nice to meet you Mark. Hope your day was better than mine yesterday. Must have worked about 60 docks from 7am to 5pm. Did work some other areas, but docks seemed to be key to getting any bites at all. Also, worked any shade near the shore. I was using the 4" RT Mullet in shadflash and opening night. It was a small snook extravaganza on the docks. I probably caught 20 small snook, but must have lost another 20 that were small also. One I caught was just a little bigger than my lure. One dock held at least 7 small snook under it. There were so many short strikes too. I did manage a 26" snook under a dock, which was nice. I also got schooled by a good fish that immediately wrapped me around a dock post and got off. The first fish I caught off a dock was a 20 3/4" red, but that was the only red I caught all day. I did catch 2 jacks, one on the mullet and one on the ssj in chartreuse. By 5pm, I was spent. Going to the Alafia on the weekend is not the brightest idea. So many boaters and jet skiers. Add in the 2 air boats out there and you complete the trifecta. Still it was good to be on the water. Lots and lots of action, but no size. Just honing my boat docking skills for when the big boys show up in Jan. and Feb.....hopefully.
