Mike S and Jim M. After catching some live bait on the grass beds, we headed west about 20 miles  and anchored over some rocky areas in 50 feet of water. We spent the entire day in this area
catching numerous keeper sized red snapper, lesser amberjack, large grunts, a nice sized mango and  2 keeper gag grouper. the largest grouper was 27 1/2 inches. Jim M caught 2 big nurse sharks, the biggest was 10 feet long. the weather was great and the water by mid afternoon was flat. Another great day fishing

Your Fishing Report Mike Spanhel, Carl Magavero and Paul Pomietlasz joined Dave Taylor aboard Seas The Moment for
an off shore trip today. A cold front had passed through the night before so we knew fishing would be tough. soon after leaving we were in 3-4’s with
a stiff breeze blowing. We anchored up about 13
miles outside of Hudson and started fishing in an area which has produced kings and grouper in the past. We caught a ton of grunts but Carl was the only one who could seem to catch any(undersize)
grouper. We moved around in the general area without much success and then decided to drift
where Dave picked up a very nice gag.
The crew really enjoyed a much smoother ride back to port. Although not heavy on big fish, the
trip provided “constant catching” and a good time was had by all.

Your Name Mike Spanhel
Your Fishing Report Stayed up way too late Tuesday watching the election results. Woke up way too early Wednesday, probably worrying about the state of the nation. Anyway decided to get shrimp and go fishing. Left the house about 7:30 AM, went along Gulf Harbors North channel, nothing. Decided to try area that Mike Kaplan spoke about during the meeting (about 2-1/2 miles west of my house).

Caught 4 s. mackerel (20 to 23″), several small macks, numerous grande ladyfish, 2 trout (one 16″ and the other small), one small gag grouper and numerous unidentified. Lost my last shrimp at 10:45 AM and back home before 11. Short but good day on the water.

PS Took a picture of one mack and you could read the ruler but a little difficult if the fish will not stay still!

Your Name Team Uffa
Your Fishing Report Hooked up with Bob L at his house out of sea pines ( Hudson) early sunday morning. we stopped at the end of his channel , and on the first cast Jean hooked up with a cobia. She had it on for about 15-20 seconds and it got off the hook. Bob saw it and said it was at least a keeper size.

then we went out abaout a mile or so and drifted most of the day. Bob & I didn’t get much casting. We were drifting pins and sand perch behind the boat all day, and we caught was about 10 small sharks, no cobia hits at all.

Jean caught 2 nice Spanish on a her favorite gold spoon.

One time Jean thought she had a cobia on, but it wasn’t, sure fought like one, but as you can see in the video it ended up being a 27″ lady fish, what a fight it gave her.

Want to thank bob for a great time out on the water.

Your Fishing Report After having the boat out of the water for annual maintenance I needed to get her wet and back on the lift. I left Nick’s Park around 9 am. I tried various spots along the way from the Cottee to Anclote Island. Only real luck was a single Spanish Mackerel that was 22 in. Caught with a weighted silver spoon. Nothing much else to report. Was able to break a rod putting the boat away so always a joy!

Your Fishing Report After putting boat in at Nick’s Park, I left with friend Joe and headed to Anclote to net some whitebait. Bait was in plentiful supply and we soon filled bait well. We then proceeded to several hard bottom areas, and with the help of chum, caught lots of mackerel up to 24 inches.
Additionally we caught 1 18 inch trout, a bunch of small sea bass and lots of blowfish. A super nice day on the water and absolutely beautiful weather. Best of all, a short ride home.

Your Fishing Report Hooked up with neighbor Kurt again. It was flat as could be out there. We first started at the North channel of G.H. and drifted for 45 minutes and not a bite, but we did see 6 nice large cobia swimming with sting rays and manatees. We tried everything but they would not hit anything.

Then we went for some white bait. There is so much bait at the new still house on the north side of the Anclote island, 2 cast and our bait well was full to the max.

then we drifted east from there and caught at least 50 keeper macks, and a few nice trout along with 7 large ladies, we kept for chum.

over all it was a great day of catching.

Your Fishing Report Hooked up with neighbor Kurt, and  we were fishing the flats by 7:30 looking for some surface action, but it was already windy and very  wavy. So we  fish  for 1 hr. using surface lures and not a bite, so then we went out to the NEW marker north of the sand bar ( # 4) and tried there for 1/2 hr. and again nothing. Then we went into sand bay and caught some  real small trout.

The we stopped right in front of the beach in gulf Harbors and Kurt on the first cast hooked up with a nice 28″cobia. and I was catching gags right there also. They were  hitting  new penny shrimp of all things.  I also snagged a 20″ mack on a gold spoon.

thanks Kurt

It was a 24 lb cobia. He caught it on  one of Bob L. white grubs.

Soon after that Jean Caught a nice  20 1/2″  Spanish mackerel on her favorite  gold spoon.
