Went to Upper Tampa Bay park to fish and paddle double branch creek with one of my cap mel forum members Jim. We put in at state street at 7am, and we were off. Paddled against a slight wind for about 15 minutes to the mouth of the park. A flats boat was live bait fishing the mangroves as well as a Gheenoe throwing spoons. We didn't see a thing caught. We fished the mangroves and oyster bars. I eventually caught one baby snook. I released the little guy and we continued fishing while paddling back to the launch. We were off the water by 10:30. The fishing wasn't so great but the scenery sure was!
