February 13, 2016. Put in at Outback Crab Shack. Chilly start but sunny all the way. Had not been on water since January 10th. A little breezy on the open water of Palmo Cove. Took a short trip down Ward's Creek until a downed tree stopped me. Just as well, 20 yards away was another huge gator sunning himself. Definitely finding the big guys on this creek!!
