Capt. Rick Stanczyk fished a half day today backcountry fishing florida keys. We ran back around flamingo and caught the end of the falling tide. We caught half a dozen small snook, much fun on light tackle! Also caught a few black drum and sheeps head. We moved to another spot and got into the ladyfish, and a couple small rat redfish. Good to see the snook around again. Capt. Bill Bassett reported catching some snook and redfish a few days ago too back there. This afternoon we fished again, the mackerels were very spotty, though we did catch a bunch of jacks and blue runners, along with some ladyfish, a few trout and snappers. The big blacktips were biting again, got one to the boat.
