Another Good Day On The Alley

Recommended Posts

Alligator Alley Saturday 5/9/15, 7:00 - Noon, Temps 87*, Blue Bird Sky, wind 5-10, Water temp 87*, light stain, visibility 10 feet deep.

Went out this morning with Steve. We ran east to the end and fished all the way back to the ramp. First cast, Steve had a nice 3 pounder in the boat. The bite was steady all day but spaced out. Steve started with a jig, and I started with a hollow body frog. The frog had no action at all, although you could see pads moving way back in the field. After Steve got up 3 to zero, I switched to a purple stick-o and started catching at a steady pace. Again today you could see big gator chasing small ones all up the canal. We were also followed by a 10 footer for several hundred yards. Today he kept a healthy 10 foot distance from the boat. No problems today! You just don't want to be out there in a kayak or something close to their size.

We finished the day with 45 bass, a big fat Oscar, and several mudfish. Not many dinks today with several in the 3 pound range,and a bunch of two's. A lot of bites were way back in the pad field and not at the drop off. We had the entire canal to our self and not many boats at the other ramps. It was another fun day on the alley.

Thanks for the report George. Sounds like quality and quantity was pretty balanced yesterday. WTG!!

Good Deal, Geo!!! Hows the water level, haven't been out there in a while?

 

 

Water levels are normal.  They never did get real low like some years.  I was waiting for them to keep dropping and the catch rate go ballistic.  It just never happened this year. :Idontknow:

I agree George. I don't see the water coming down like some years past. This time a few years back boats were having trouble launching from a few places. If you had a small tin like mine you were golden. Glass boats couldn't launch.
