Fished the stretch between lake Harvey and Puzzle Lakes yesterday. Caught one poor little thing and threw it back.
We went way the heck up the Econlockhatchee River. It is truly beautiful up there. You start out winding through a flat prairie that is only about a foot higher than the river. As you get further in you pass more and more Sable Palm. Further along you run into oak scrub forest.
The birds are everywhere. In addition to the usual herons and egrets we saw eagles, spoonbill, storks, Sandhill cranes, and tricolor heron.

There were signs that the water had recently been three or four feet higher than the banks. Iím guessing that was hurricane related flooding. Note the water mark on the sign.

Weíre headed for Mosquito Lagoon on the east coast today. Back in salt water where I belong.
