Chokoloskee/Rabbit Key 02/16/08

Work ran late and i didn't get on the road till 10am, me and Rick were on the water in Chokoloskee @ 12:30 after various delays, we paddled straight out to the area of turtle key and started fishing, i nailed 2 little snook on glow DOA shrimp then got rocked by something that shredded through my 25lb leader, switched to my new Snookin' Rod (St Croix Tidewater 8ft) and i lost a nice snook in the same spot on a bucktail. Switched back to the light tackle after a while and got another little snook on a rootbeer terror eyez. We paddled down near Rabbit Key and got into a mess of trout, nice ones too, the smallest was 15' with most being around 18' or so, we left them biting to have a few beers on the beach and paddled back with the sun setting behind us, great day on the water, but it always seems like a great day in the 10,000 islands.
