    Default Charlotte Harbor, FL video

    The video is of a few fish that I caught during a trip to Charlotte Harbor last October.

    Thanks. It was great fun. Every time I go, I learn a little more. This trip, I got carried away with the canal system in that area.

    I was really thrown off because kept looking for the Mirage Drive pedals in the video but couldn't see them. Then I saw you reach for a Torqueedo? lever. Very nice, very smooth.

    That's fishing in style...almost cheating (I mean that in a friendly banter kinda way - please don't take offense :-)

    Thanks. There were a variety of fish. Of course I left off all of the catfish. If I let the bait settle and sit too long, it would be a sail or hard head catfish, at least back in the canals. I kind of got carried away this trip with the canals. However, they looked quite fishy and were. Next trip I am going to mix it up a little more, but that seems to always be the goal. I came upon tarpon on several occasions, but they seemed to be feeding on glass minnows, and they just did not want what I was offering.

    The torqeedo does extend the range by a lot. It also makes it easier on an old guy like myself.

    Thanks for sharing.

    You have to love FL for the sheer variety of fish it offers to kayakers.

    You did quite well with the popping cork. Using one was a new experience for me in November on a trip to TX. It still surprises me that the technique works. My thought was that the commotion of the cork would scare fish away. Wrong! I was so impressed I even brought a Cajun Thunder cork home as a souvenir.

    Anyway, your scenes of FL mangroves were very welcome on this cold January night.

    I will be viewing them in person in a little over two weeks and I cannot wait given this stretch of miserable weather we are having.

    It is always nice to be in Florida. As you said, right now would be the perfect time to escape the cold.
