Up next is Event #5 of 6 "Weedon Island Area" of
HCKAC Tournament Series & The 2015 Series Championship
on Saturday, October 3rd
While fishing the mangroves yesterday I came upon a 30 to 40 thousand dollar boat blocking my path so I was forced to detour around them. Once around them I started casting back at the bushes and then this happened as both occupants of that boat looked on.
8th Annual Joe Island Fish_N_Munch
Predicting the weather in Florida during summer is always a crap shoot but odds are that it will rain on any given day. Our local radar showed a front heading our way the night before the 8th Annual HCKAC "Birthday" Fish_N_Munch and the forecast called for early morning storms. Mother nature decided to prove that meteorologists are only guessing what she will do and several HardCore kayak anglers also decided to call their bluff.
The skies were dry when we met but clouds were speeding by as winds were near double digits from the north and west.
The tide was high and fish were staging up at points and cuts waiting for bait to be flushed from their mangove hideouts. Snook, Reds and Trout were in attendance and everyone caught fish... except for Fishvision who only caught 1/2 of one.
FishinFox had a hot hand and scored a slot Red plus several Snook.
Luck was with us and we got several hours of fishing in, but storms were racing toward us so we got off the water to get our "munch" on.
Big thanks to those who came out! Cheers to another 8 years of HardCore kayak angling.
Moments after this pic, the sky opened up and we had to scramble loading up.
