Your Fishing Report Hooked up with Captain Sean from gulf harbors on Monday.

We went for white bait at the sunken sail boat, 2 cast and had a bait well full, only thing there were 2-3′ white caps in the bay so we didn’t hit any of Sean’s hot spot, we ended up inside of gulf harbors in the north channel.

We had a blast catching nice snappers and Hugh black drum. We got the snapper on white bait free lining and the drum on live HUGH shrimp on the bottom. The snapper ranged from 12-14″ and the drum were from 16-21″.

Thanks for a good day of catching Sean

Your Fishing Report Mike Spanhel and I left Miller Bayou at 8:00 with an almost dead low tide. Planned to fish Westport, but water was too shallow to get in. We did see some tailing redfish along the channel while using the trolling motor and push pole to fish the edge of the channel.

Moved out to 5′ of water and caught a dozen fair sized trout and the inevitable catfish while waiting out the tide. After a n hour or so we again entered Westport area but neither saw nor felt any hits in an hour so we came home

Your Fishing Report Mike B & I went out early and fished the flats out side of gulf harbors, It was flat so we used surface lures and we picked up at least 20 trout of which 5 or 6 were keeper size but we released all of them. we also caught 3 40+” black tips sharks free lining live pin fish behind the boat,

So we left and I took Mike to my secret honey holes for red fish. We got there and there was a boat already there and they were bring them in one after another, we were about 200 yards away and not a bite, so the guy in the boat said come on over by us, so we did and we had a great time CATCHING nice reds. We got about 15 of them, most in the slot. Mike ended up keeping a 22″ and mine was 24″ red. After about 2 hrs we ran out of bait. They were hitting small live pins and live shrimp.

Thanks for taking me out again mike

Fishing Report Had the pleasure to go off shore again with Mike Kaplan and Bob Sherley. We departed EARLY from Nick’s park at 5:15 a.m. and headed due west for 50+ miles. There was 1 storm on Mike’s radar and wouldn’t you know we had to drive right threw it. after that it was a beautiful flat day out there, the sun came out and we started to fish.
The first stop was hot, but not for red grouper, Mike landed 3 nice AJ’S and I caught some nice lane snappers.
So we moved to one spot to another, total of 8 different spots and we only caught 2 keeper groupers. The groupers just weren’t hungry. We were using a variety of baits and they didn’t want anything.
thanks for the invite, Mike

Fishing Report Mike and I headed out for a morning of fishing from his place on the Gulf. We fished the area in the flats north of Gulf Harbors with a couple of strikes but not real action. We moved on to deeper water in the north/south channel and picked up some small trout and other non game fish. It was a great morning of fishing, thanks Mike.

Fishing Report Left out of Nick’s Park around 6am.  After picking up 80 pieces of bait from Mike S pin traps.  We headed out 50 miles.  We got to our spot and we started catching fish.  If the bite slowed we moved a mile or two and covered several spots drifting and anchored.  Great day on the water.  I am the offshore amateur and Mike Kaplan and Mike Spanel tried to help me get two nice keeper sized Red Grouper out of their holes.  I caught a 23 in Mangrove and a 22 in American Red Snapper.  Mike S and Mike K were slaughtering the Amberjack.  Highlights of the day were when Mike Kaplan helped me untangle my line from the anchor rope after a 43 in Cobia had his way with me.  With lots of help from both Mikes we were able to get her in the boat.  The other highlight was that after all of us had been getting bitten or broken off for about half an hour or so Mike Kaplan caught a 27 inch Red Grouper with 4 hooks and lines in his mouth!  The hooks were all Mike’s so he beat the bastard!  Lots of fish for friends and freezing.  Thanks to Mike Kaplan for another great day on the water.

Fishing Report Went out with captain Sean , and a friend Kurt living in gulf harbors. We caught some pins and white bait and hit the oyster beds, We caught over 40 reds 1/2 of them were in the slot.

Many time all of us were hooked up at the same time. It didn’t matter what you threw at them, as soon as it sank to the bottom, they hit it.

Then we tried a few other spots and didn’t catch a thing. The water is still dirty.

Thanks for another fine day of CATCHING Sean,

Rick Uffa
