Went out early in Kayak out of Green mainly to test home made Sabiki rig. Did some fishing in Oyster creek and hooked into some small reds and an 18 inch flounder. Made my way back out between Green Key and Gulf harbors and hooked a small bonnet head shark. I kept the flounder and shark as I haven’t tasted shark yet and was told it is good, we will see. Made it back to shore about 1:30 and loaded up, wind was a little brisk today but fun day.
I fished the GulfHarbor Yacht Club Veterans Day Tournament with Sean Signor and 2 other vererans. Fishing was very slow but I managed a nice trout which lead the tournament through most of the day but was beaten at teh last minute. Ww all caught trout that day, but only 1 legal sized redfish was caught by the 50 anglers, and no legal snook were landed. Slow day but the Veterans had a good time on the water

The sea Gods were again very nice to us out and back, we went 30 miles west at a high rate of speed.
Mike moved 8-9 times looking for fish, they were on the screen, but not cooperating at all. We did catch some nice size ars all over 22″ and loaded the fish box with nice size grunts all over 11″. Mike did manage to land one legal gag, and I landed a nice size A.J.
But Mike B caught the biggest fish of the day. You need to watch video, But it’s long so just fast forward it to the last 3 minutes.
We all want to thank Mike for another good day on the water.

Grouper we all caught some nice fish on cut bait sardines really weren’t that hungry on pinfish we all had some big fish on couldn’t bring them in. And caught some big grunts NICE DAY
Met with Paul P and Bob B Capt and Dave Taylor before the 7 am departure time at Hudson Marina. We left on low tide, with fair weather and calm seas. Since It had been reported that gags were in the shallower water we headed out to our first stop in 20 + ft. . With nothing going on there, Dave moved us out another 8 miles to 50 + ft. Activity there consisted of a couple of Black Bass and two undersize red grouper. I got lucky with a very nice gag grouper that took me by complete surprise. We subsequently caught a few grunts and a variety of throw backs. The remora couldn’t give Bob a moment of peace and for a while and kept jumping on his bait as soon as it went overboard. Thanks Dave for a great day of fishing and my first grouper.
Russ Thompson wrote me and asked me to let the members know this was my (his) boat and he sold it to his nephew in N. C. and he found it to be a little smaller boat than he wanted due to area on the Atlantic he would be using it. Go to the classified section of the website to see details on the boat.

My brother and I went out on the 12 hour Gulfstar grouper/snapper trip and had a great day with smooth water and good fishing. As you heard by now that the gag grouper are moving into 40 to 50 feet of water and they are hungry. With 20 persons on the boat we all caught at least 1 keeper grouper. Bait of the day was pinfish. We also caught many red snapper which were returned to the water for another day. I lost a monster gag which was pulling drag on my 113 H reel. Now I know why I luv to grouper fish. WHAM. everybody enjoyed the day. Tightlines and get out there before the end of the year. Good luck.
Team Uffa hooked up for a combination off shore and back water trip, with Jim T.
The tide was extremely low, no water at all in cross bayou and green key was almost dry too. On the way out of Jim’s canal, Jean threw out a jig with a white tail, as soon as it hit the water a rat red hit it.
Then we went to all the hot spots off shore we have for cobia and not a bite, so we then went to Pasco 1 & 2 and trolled for 2 hrs and not a bite, so we came back in and coming down the North channel in G.H. the big jacks were all over the place. We had more action and fun in the channel than we did out in the gulf.
It was so nice fishing cause the fog never lifted and there was a nice breeze.
Met up with Jim M., Ken J. and Phil A. at Brasher Park just at Low Tide. There wasn’t enough water in the channel to launch our shallow water kayaks till about 9 AM. After we did get under way it wasn’t long till the tide came ripping through Salt Springs Run bring along plenty of grass. Fishing was slow to say the least, I caught one keeper trout and a ladyfish on DOA white grub and released about 2 other fish. I believe there were some more trout caught in the channel but not on my line. As a group we moved on to the Energy Center and fished the eddies on the corners and I believe Phil caught a smallish Sheephead but I did not witness that catch. We fished there till we were sure there would be no further action and then move out front and tried the channel and the mangroves just outside the park. We decided to call it a day and started the paddle back to Brasher when Phil pulled up a under sized but pretty Red. A great day on the water, thanks Mommy.
