Sunday 6/5/16, 7:00-11:30, heavy cloud cover, winds 5-10 ESE, water temps 86*, water stained.

Went out today with Steve Johnson.  Ran west to the first cut and started fishing a frog, Gambler Cane Toad.  Picked up two fish early on the frog.  Steve was throwing a Zoom Horney Toad with several swirls and no takers.  After a half hour we switched to a senko type bait and caught some tight to the sawgrass stems.  You had to be tight to cover to get them to bite.  The bite was slow but steady.  As the wind picked up we continued to drift west, and we began switching off on different baits.  We threw U-vibes, trick worms, ribbon tails, flukes, beavers, and centipedes. The Zoom Fluke was definitely the most consistent with several back to back catches. 

The thick weeds are becoming more dense, but you can still move around on the flat pretty well.  File your trolling motor blades to cut up the thick stuff better.  The catching was a little slow at times, but steady.  After a few hours on the flat we ran several miles to the north canal.  Steve was catching them pretty well on the fluke.  I caught the big fish of the day, a 3.5 lber.  With storms rolling in from the south east we called it quits at 11:30, and headed for the ramps. 

We finished the day with 26 bass caught.  There were a lot of 1.5 chunks, several big Bowfin, and several gar harassing our baits.  It was a fun day, cool with heavy cloud cover, and the best part is we dodged the storms.

Sounds like you had a really nice morning. Thank you for putting out the report!  I'm planning on fishing the Alley this coming Saturday. I always have on board a few bags of Zoom Super Flukes. Was the water level at Lox still higher than usual?

Right now the Alley bite is tough.  There is plenty of water at Lox.  Its still better then the Alley right now.
