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 Team Uffa hooked up with Mike T. today for a great day of CATCHING.  We went to the sugar trout hot spot and soon as we dropped our lines the bite was on, but not sugar trout but  spotted trout. They ranged from 14-17″.

Then  the macks moved in for a while and we all got some, along with some cut offs.

And then we moved a little bit and the sugar trout was  on fire for about 2 hrs. They ranged from 12″ to 17″ and they were nice n fat

So I guess between the 3 of us we caught at least 75-100 fish today.

We didn’t keep any fish at all today, just catch & release day.

Thanks for a great day of fishing Mike

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 Denis S and I went out at about 9:30 am, an hour before low tide to check out a new trolling bar Denis had installed on the boat.  It was chilly but we first stopped at the spoiler islands at the end of the Anclote River without too much luck so we moved south to the area near the crab pots in 7′ of water and bingo the bite was on.  Not big trout, mostly 14″, but a lot of them.  After catching non stop for an hour or so we decided to check out new place. At this point we had caught around 25 fish each. We tried another area in front of Howard park but no luck so we moved out to the channel on the west side of Anclote Key.  We fished the sand bar area because to me it looked like it should hold flounder. Sure enough we found flounder in about 5′ of water on the sand.  We moved around to several places along the channel and hooked up with Mangrove Snapper, about 10″ long, one right after the other.  At around 2:30 pm we had headed back in after a full day of catching. We had caught at least 100 fish in a short stretch of time.  True not many keepers in the lot but a whole lot of fun.  We used white, yellow and pink plastic all day on 1/4 oz jigs.  I am headed back soon with proper flounder set ups for sure.

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 Hooked up with Jim K from the club. We hit a few spots out in front of G.H., but no luck, so we ended up by the sunken sail boat and had a great time CATCHING , sugar & spotted trout, and we also managed to land 2 keeper Spanish mackerel.

The  sugar trout were running around 12-16″. We were catching them on a 1/8′ oz jig tipped with a small piece of a white, or yellow grub.

It was a little chilly in the morning but  warmed up nicely.

Can’t wait to get out with you again Jim.

Went into salt springs on low tide and caught a xxx inch red and a 14 inch sheepshead. Got back to Brasher just as rain started, fun day, nobody else fishing, probably much smarter than me.

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 Mike K, Joe, Chet, and I headed out of Nick’s Park at low tide around 6am. We picked up some pinfish from traps Chet put out the night before. He caught a cobia while out placing the traps! We went to a variety of spots around 50-60 miles out looking for Red Grouper. We ended up with 2 nice size ones and 3 additional keeper sized Grouper on live pins, cut bait and squid. I caught several small lane Snapper on request from Rick Uff for his dinner Saturday. My biggest Red Grouper ever I got in with a 4000 sized spinning reel and a 7.5 foot spinning rod. What a fight. Also caught were some nice released Red Snapper and some lesser Amber Jack. Mike’s descending device for pressure affected fish saved the lives of many released fish. All in all a great day of catching many and varied fish during a safe trip out. Thanks to Mike K for another memorable outing.

State the length and species in the box below Met Dave Taylor and his crew of Robert Grover and Butch Kaelin at Port Hudson Marina at about 7:30, loaded the boat and took off at about 8:00.  Dave found his first spot in 42′ which resulted in grunts and sea bass.  WE moved west and found more of the same at every spot we tried.  At about 65′, I even found an elusive American Red Snapper.  Finally one or two spots before we called it a day, I picked my Nekid Ball Jig, which I had fished all day, and connected with a fish that actually pulled some drag.  A short time later, the gaff was firmly planted into an 18 1/2 pound kingfish, the fish of the day.  I must state, I fished the Nekid Ball Jig all day long and even though we did not put many fish in the box, this lure, tipped with dead shrimp caught Grunts, Seabass, Porgy’s Squirrel Fish, Lizard Fish, American Red Snapper and the kingfish all day long.   Dave had is own, and I offered Robert and Butch ine of the several I carried with me, but they declined,stating they would come to the store and get their own :~)

State the length and species in the box below Hooked up with a neighbor in G.H. and we headed out and the soon as we got into 7-8′ of water the mackerel bite was on, caught about 25 of them, then proceeded to the sand bar, and we got into lots of trout, we landed 2 keepers around 20″.

Something hit a small lady fish while we were bring it in, but the guy we were fishing with has a 2500 reel, and within 10 seconds took all his line off his reel.

it was nice and calm out there today, and we were using all color jigs, the white was the best color.

another great day of catching in the gulf of Mexico.
