Alligator Alley MM39 Saturday 8/20/16

Recommended Posts

Alligator Alley MM39, first light-11:30, Sunny, wind south 5-10, water stained, current running south east toward the river, water temp 90*.

Went out with Steve Johnson, we ran down to the dead end to the east.  We fished back toward the ramps.  I was throwing a u-tail worm and Steve a stick-o.  I caught a bass on the first cast and that is often a curse of the fish Gods.  Neither of us caught a fish for another hour.  Steve caught one and got the skunk out of the boat.  The wind finally picked up and we started catching again.  There were few gators or signs of life in the canal.  Unlike last week you had to throw way back in the pad fields to catch fish.  Then getting them out of there was a problem.  We noticed a small snake trying hard to get in our boat before becoming fish food.  We had to out run him with the trolling motor. 

We finished the day with 10 bass caught, a bunch of gar strikes and some little bait fish action as well. The biggest bass were in the 1.5 range.  We threw an array of plastics in the pad field and drop-offs. It was a tough day of fishing with unbearable heat, and little cloud cover.  We also had a near full moon all night,  which often makes the glades fishing a challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to make the report. It's always great to find out how people are doing around my area. And I give you a lot of credit for spending even half a day out there in August.
