      Last night Judy, Oscar and I paddled up the Caloosahatchee from North side of Fort Myers bridge (Cleveland Ave).  Water was calm when we launched, wind  and waves increased as we headed north, especially north of Edison Bridge (Fowler to old 41).  Wind was 9-10mph out of East then switched to ESE, mild tide was outgoing but the combination of wind, tide and deep water created strong waves near our destination, sometimes confused waves


      We could see the phosphorescence in the moving waves, when the fish jumped up, when the fish ran past us in the water, and when we watched our paddle strokes (but we didn't watch our strokes too much, we had to watch the water and keep paddling).  It was very cool, icy blue sparkles popping up all around.


      On a calm windless night if anyone else wants to seek out the phosphorescence, we paddled north of the Edison Bridge, north side of the river, near Old Bridge Park (google maps).  You'll see it first in the water movement of your paddle strokes.  Warning: even on calm night there could be manatees about and mullet will be jumping.


      Next Wed we'll launch near Bonita Bills.
