11/29/14: Half Day Family Trip: After a cold and windy week here in south west Florida we finally found our break in the weather we had been waiting for. We begun our day planing to target Trout and Redfish inside due to a forecast of a 10-15 knot north east winds and 3′ seas. We decided to take a look out the pass to check conditions ourselves, when to our surprise we realized the forecast was a bit off… Their was little to no wind, and what wind there was, was due east. Seas were calm, and with one look at our groups eager faces we knew that we were going to change gears and head offshore
