MATLATCHA, Fla. - Four In Your Corner is taking a ride with Captain Jack to see how much red tide is impacting waterways in the area.

Water releases from Lake Okeechobee over the past two months have severely affected beaches, canals and other waterways across Southwest Florida.

Captain Jack's boat tours leave from Matlacha and Bokeelia daily. He says any sign of wildlife could mean the red tide is improving in that area. For more information about tours call (239)-222-9886.
