The red tide is hitting this area again pretty hard. See the FWC site.(scroll to zoom in and get more detail) Last year the PI sound seemed to be immune to it, but not now. Recent reports show dead baitfish all over, and no reds, snook, trout in usual places. Just in time for the yearly Calusa Blueway Fishing Tournament next week. Matlacha Pass north of the bridge looks like the only good area reachable by kayaks. On a positive note, not being able to fish due to shoulder rehab, not as much an issue now.
