Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Paul Pomietlasz, Robert Grover and Carl Mogavero and I met at the Port Hudson Marina for a day of
fishing.  Projected seas were 2-3 so we took off
expecting fair conditions.  About 10 miles out,
things got much rougher with confused seas
running 3-4 with an occasional 5 footer thrown
in.  I guess at least one of the sea gods had a bad night and decided to take it out on us.
After a brief try at a near shore reef, we
headed inshore to calmer water.
Our next stop was the marker #4 area
where we hoped to find some mackerel.
Even with chumming, none seemed to be in
the area.  Next, we tried the power plant outlet
and could not hook up with any decent sized fish.
Overall a disappointing day of catching but most
enjoyable sharing the time with fellow members

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below The team consisted of Bob S, Newbie Jim Thirkill, and my-self, meet Mike at Nick’s park 6:00 a.m.sharp. We already had  pins, so we directly  proceeded west for 2 hr ride. The Sea Gods were not very nice to us on this trip, very rough going out and coming back in, but Mike promised it would be flat out there all day and he was right, could not ask for a better day to be out in the gulf.

This was one of Mike’s few trips that we didn’t limit out on reds. We ended up with 5 keepers and Mike  landed  a very nice sized one, along with a nice gag too.

At one of our stops we were catching everything, American reds (nice ones) all over 20″, gag grouper, and most of we all tied into some very large A.J.’s

The newbie did very well for his first time out, and even  got his limit of red grouper, but the A.J,’s were giving him a tough time.

See attached video of all 4 of us having a fish on at the same time, it was crazy.

We were fishing in  85-100′ of crystal blue waters.

Today’s team want to thanks Mike  again for a great day of catching.

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Butch K, Dave C and I joined Capt. Dave Taylor for an offshore fishing trip at 6:45 am on Seas The Moment.  The morning air was cool and the seas a bit choppy but we found ourselves at our first stop in 30′ of water west of Hudson.  We picked up some small black bass and grunt .  The bottom was full of fish but we decided to move to deeper water to see if we could find bigger fish.  Well we found bigger fish on the bottom and throughout the water column but nothing would bite.  We dried cut bait, live pin fish, jigs and even Jack’s naked ball jig but nothing would bite.  The just showed all over the fish finder swimming by.  I guess we had a fishing and not a catching day but it was good being out on the water anyway.  Thanks Capt Dave for getting us on fish, sorry we let you down and didn’t bring any on-board.

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Took advantage of the light winds to go up the Cottee River for fuel. Also picked up 2 dozen shrimp. Went to the northern most stilt house, saw a couple of cobia, one was following a squirrel fish I hoked. Left and stopped about 2 miles west of the Gulf Harbors North Channel. Caught 4 trout, 3 small and one 17″. Also caught one mackerel. Of course after releasing it I remembered mackerel is fish on the month. Left the house at 9:30 AM and back with the boat cleaned at 1:30 PM. (My normal trip, last minute and short)

If anyone is available at the last minute (24 hours or less) send me an e-mail (spanhel@verizon.net) and we will try to hook up.

Bob and I headed out on Sat. morning around 8 am for a day of inshore fishing. We started in the channel half way between Gulf Harbors and the sandbar and worked our way down to Rucker and back up. We caught a few small trout and Bob hooked a nice hammerhead shark. Around noon the wind came up and the bite stopped so we headed in around 2. Not an over the top day of fishing but a good day of fishing with a friend.

We were sight fishing for cobia  in sand bay. We saw at least 8 of them over sting rays but weren’t quick enough to get the bait on them, the boat was moving tooo fast.

I (jean) then saw 2 and threw in front of them with a 2″ live pin fish, and to my surprise he hit it. ( see video of the catch)

Besides that we didn’t do that well at all.

Thanks for  a nice day on the water Jim.

State the length and species in the box below My neighbor Pat invited me to fish with him, Arty, and another friend inshore today. We left the dock at 6:30 and when to Cow Creek to get white Bait. It took about 10 cast net throws to load up with plenty of nice LARGE white bait. We worked several spots raging from Cow Creek all the way down to Three Rooker (Green Key, Gulf Harbors N & S Channel areas, Anclote Isl., Sand Bay, etc.).
We ended up with 4 nice Snook and a Red fish. Went to Whiskey River for Lunch back to dock to clean fish, then home to shower. Beautiful day on the water with friends.

State the length and species in the box below Kayak fishing with members Joe and Phil out of Anclote boat ramp looking for redfish.  Hadn’t been out fishing in 2 weeks.  Had live shrimp and some pinfish.  Left dock about 9 AM on incoming tide.  We started catching some reds 16-20″ on mostly shrimp.  Around lunchtime the wind changed from the East to the West to match the incoming tide also right at the beginning of peak moon phase window. The fish started taking cut pinfish and got bigger.  Now they were running 22-27′.  We really enjoyed the bite, the company, and the 1st decent fishing weather in a while.
