Palma Sola Bay is producing the best seatrout action I've experienced in several years. Drei Stroman of Fort Myers joined me yesterday on what proved to be a slow outing. We caught and released 40 trout, a load of ladyfish and a nice pompano -- all on fly. The tide was really slow. They'll pick up next week with the new moon. So, I expect some hot action then.

We're using Clouser Deep Minnows and Popovics Jiggys on either sinktip lines or floating lines with 12-foot fluorocarbon leaders. The trout have been solid, fat and up to 23 inches.
