I really wanted to go to Flamingo for Fathers Day but when I woke up and checked the weather I saw conflicting wind forecasts. Then the radar showed some early small storms in Florida Bay. I checked Choko and it looked clear as a bell so that’s where I went.
Once I got on SR 29 heading south naturally I was greeted with huge flashes of lightning coming from the coast. “Oh well” I thought to myself “maybe it’s not over the bay”. I’m glad I kept going because it was a beautiful morning although the wind was higher than forecast.
I stayed close because there were storms all around. I stand up paddled the W 500 and caught a load of nice size trout. I did spot and hook a nice size Snook but lost him because of an inconsiderate Googan in a microskiff. I have most of the trout on Go Pro film and will post that later.
I took so many pictures of the clouds that I ran my battery out on the still machine.
