"gator trout" :-)

I'm working on a project in Palm Beach Gardens through Sunday so I brought my kayak for the days off (yesterday and today). Turned out to be a good idea. The weather was great yesterday and windy but ok today. I fished the Round Island Park area of the Indian River, I've never been to this spot before. It's across the river from Vero Beach and really nice. Manatee everywhere, dolphins, few motorized boats and best of all the fishing was great :-) I caught a bunch of stuff, here's a few of them. Picked up the "Gator Trout" on a grass flat, about 34", a new personal record! The Red came from way, way back in the mangroves, a nice slot size fish. The pics (cell phone) don't do the colors of these guys justice...

OK, now I'm jealous. I have a couple kayaks and didn't get 'em wet this year. Maybe next year!
BTW nice catch!

Wow...they have some bad things in those Florida Waters. I keep telling my wife about stuff, she was born and raised up there. We have Kayaks but we just look to paddle around the lakes here.
