Report On A Successful Fishing Trip – Ozello, Florida, By Gary Rankel

Dick Sherman and I had a nice day out of Ozello, Florida. Dick landed a 25 inch redfish which he may be consuming as I type this, and we each had several more big reds on. Dick also caught a Sheepshead (also called a convict fish by the locals for obvious reasons) on a surface lure which is a super rare occurrence - I’ve yet to catch one in 6 years of fishing. I landed a jack crevalle, and a super-hungry 5-inch lizard fish that tried to swallow a 4-inch lure. Unfortunately, my big reds shook off before I got pictures of them, but it was a blast watching them swim underneath the W kayak. Gary

    The Florida Keys has some great open water kayaking, but nothing like what you have. I’ll have to head up there for some of that good fishing 🙂
