Help for Kids Fishing Tournament Positions Filled

UPDATE:  We now have 13 people signed up to help with the kids fishing tournament so  we are full.  Thanks everyone for the quick response to my email. 

 

I just received and email from Ryan Pinckley of the Pasco County Parks Dept. requesting the Fish On Club provide 10 to 12 members to help the kids with fishing and to measure the fish caught at the annual Pasco Kid Fishing Tournament. The tournament is held on the pier at Anclote Gulf Park, 2305 Baillies Bluff Road, Holiday, FL 34691. We have helped with this event for several years now and Ryan was not aware that we needed more notice to insure we had the man power to help them. The tournament this year is scheduled for Feb. 17, 2018 and as I recall starts at 8 am and last until sometime in the early afternoon. I believe last year I was home by 3 pm. Ryan needs to know soon if we are going to be able to help and our next meeting is not until Feb. 13th, 4 days before the tournament so by copy of this email I am asking you if you would like to help with this kids tournament. Drop me an email or call me at fish-on-fishingclub1@hotmail.com or 727-597-0741   and let me know we can count you in to help out. I will have more details to relate to you no later than the club meeting in Feb. Thanks in advance for your help and support.

We went out a little bit later allowing the weather to warm up . We looked for warmer water on the flats , but nothing was biting . We tried a secluded canal with warmer water , hooked a big trophy size jack . When the bite did not improve we tried for Silver trout in a deep inshore channel . We saw fish on the monitor , but nothing was biting . Our last strategy was to try shoals and bars where the moving water brings in Bait . Unlike the day before when it was cold and windy , this time the trout bite was on . We caught them on both artificial and live bait . We caught the lim it of trout . They varied from 16 to 19 inches in size .
I am hoping to again tomorrow . My boat is by the Anclote River Ramp .

My Son and I went out today and found a honey hole in Tampa Bay. We caught about 40 trout with most going over 15″ and included several 18″ – 20″ fish. We started with live shrimp and I changed to a Mirror dine and caught about 15. It was a hoot on a beautiful day to be on the bay.

My friend Paul asked me to take him out to do some catching. We started in front of G.H. and we didn’t do anything, so we trolley down to the power plant and picked up 5 nice size macks on white grubs. we tied up to one of the buoys and fished for 1 hr and not a bite, so we decide to go back up in front of G .H. and we ended up catching some more small macks.

We decide to quite and on the way into G.H. I threw a white grub by some mangroves and we ended up catch over 30 nice size trout, right at this one spot The smallest was 18″. They bit for about 1 hr, some times Paul and I had 2 on at a time.

Over all it was a nice day of catching

My neighbor Pantlies had friends in from Chicago, and asked me if i would take his boat out and  help his friends catch fish, and boy did we.

We only went out in front of Gulf Harbors at the end of the south channel marker and we never moved for 4 hrs. We caught over 100 macks and they were hitting anything you threw at them. I even put on a popper on and it was sooo neat to see them hit it, sometimes they just pushed it into the air about a foot and soon as it hit the water again another Mack grabbed it.

We had at least 30 cut offs on the jig and we were using 50 lb leader.

I talked to Mike Brumley and he went out with a neighbor and they went to the power plant and tied off on the buoys and he said they murdered  the macks and large jacks on both side of the buoys.

The boys from Chicago had a great time.

Jim T. invited my-self , Mike Brumley and a friend Sean to go out with him.

We set our pin fish trap the night before and picked them up in the morning, The tide was soo low Jim got the boat stuck picking up the traps,  so we all got up in the bow and  Jim  put the boat into gear  and with all the weight on the front the  boat unstuck.

And as for the weather, you could not see 100′ in front of you, so Jim took a slow ride out 20 miles. On the way home Jim made up for the time we lost going out, cruising at 38 knots.

At our first spot we caught 10 gags grouper and of which 3 were keepers, then we moved around  and caught grouper at most spots but small ones. We did end up all catching a keeper gag. When the fog finally raised, we thought we were the only boat out there, but to our surprise  there were 9 other boats  within 1/4 to 1  mile of us.

We had all kinds of bait, but they only wanted med size live pin fish.

We also caught about 5-6 nice size ars, all over 20″, and i was using a chicken rig on a light rod and  caught 10-13 nice size grunts.

One thing that was great out there, was the tide, it was moving very quickly for most of the day, so i think that helped the bite too.

We all want to thanks Jim T. for a great day of catching on the water.

Taking advantage of the light winds friend Joe, Terry Freeman and myself decided to head out to 100 feet of water to check out the Red Grouper bite. We encountered heavy fog most of the way out and had to rely on radar most of the way.

Using mainly dead bait we tried numerous spots which showed lots of fish but managed to land only 1 keeper Red Grouper. We did catch a lot of mixed snappers and 2 large Bluefish.

There was very little water movement most of the day and this may have accounted for the slow grouper bite. We quit at 3:30 and enjoyed a super smooth ride home.
