Butch K and his grandson Reece joined me today for some inshore fishing near the mouth of the Anclote River and the sandbar.  The day started out chilly but 10 yr old Reece was up to the weather with lots of enthusiasm and a background of catching lunker size Big Mouth Bass in freshwater.  We got off to a good start catching lots of shorts of all kinds. Trout, catfish, jacks,back bass, silver bass and lizard fish.  The bite slowed later in the day as it warmed up and we approached high tide.  We called it a day and a great time was had, it was so much fun watching Reece bring in those fish.

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 Saturday was such a beautiful day that I decided to go fishing from 0900 to 1300. Picked up some shrimp and headed for the flats in front of Bailles Bluff in 4 to 8 feet of water. Hi tide was around noon and that was the best bite. I caught a few short trout and some large sp mackerel. A good day on short notice and the bite is on so get out and fish. Tightlines.

Denis S and I headed out of Tarpon Springs for a day of inshore fishing. We fished all artificial.  We use soft plastic for the most part on 3/8 and 1/4 oz jig heads.  The best color of the day was copper penny, then in equal amounts white, ping and chartreuse.  We caught a lot of fish in 5 hours, somewhere between 50 and 60.  It was a good mix, silver trout, spotted trout, mangrove snapper, black bass, hammer head shark and Spanish mackerel.  Denis tries several home made lures with mixed results.  It was a great day on the water fishing with a friend.

My 2 neighbor Paul and Doug from G.H. went out early Thursday morning and had a great time catching some nice size macks and huge lady fish. The ladies were all over 23″. We had lots of cut offs till we jumped up to 80 lb leader and then it stopped. We were using 3/8 oz jigs with all different color tails, white seem to be the best.

After 3 hrs of catching them we got tired. We caught them between maker 5 and Anclote island, drifting.

Doug and I want to thank Paul Broome a fun day on the water.
