- Be careful paddling about. I've seen fishkill from Red Tide around the area starting the week before Christmas around Cayo Costa beaches in Boca Grande pass.
It's probably a good idea to check the red tide reports before paddling out. I didn't and started coughing Sat AM. Red Tide effects were especially strong around Sanibel Sat AM, Oscar and I paddled around the mangroves behind Shell Point Village, it was OK at 9am but on way back in about noon we saw more and more dead fish.
Yesterday I paddled from Marco boat ramp to Cape Romano, saw a few dead fish.
How's Estero Bay. Do you think it'll be OK to do the night paddle on Friday, Jan 6?
