Your Fishing Report Team Uffa hooked up with Mike Desabrais and we left out of Hudson. The winds were  pretty high and  the seas were about 2 feet, but after 1 hr, it calm right down for the rest of the day.
At first the bite was slow then we found the mackerel. We must have caught at least 40-50 macks in 4hrs. Today they weren’t very big, 15-18″, but  manages to get 2 nice keepers.

They were hitting everything we threw at them. We lost 2 spoons , 2 plugs, and about 15  jigs on cut off. We were using 50 lb leader and  they cut right threw it, without you even feeling it.

We were fishing just outside of gulf harbors about 3 miles in 9-10′ of water.

Thanks Mike for a great day Of CATCHING  this time

Your Fishing Report Chet J, and I joined Capt. Mike S and friend/neighbor Ron for a mid morning  day of fishing for mackerel somewhere north and a little west of Marker 4.  We embarked with 5 dozen shrimp and other spoons, jigs and lures.  The mackerel were quite cooperative, no really big ones but more than a lot of keepers.  The mackerel were hitting on anything you put in the water and cutting off everything, even on steel leader.  I finally had a circle hook with some 80lb mono as leader and which did a good job of not getting cut off.  Anyway, by 12:30 pm, did I mention we left at 10:30 am, we headed in since we had run out of shrimp caught a boat load of mackerel Mike said Sherry had food at the house.  It was a great day of fishing and enjoying friends new and old.  Thanks Mike.

Your Fishing Report Fished with my son and one of his bosses on a 47 Release with POD drives. Boat is amazing. With the PODS and a joystick, it can move at 7 knots, sideways. Fishing was slow but always enjoyable with my son, and enough dolphin, bonito, and kingfish pulling on the string to keep it interesting. Went 0 for 1 on sails.

Your Fishing Report Joe B, Frank B and Chet J boarded Seas The Moment captained by Dave T at 7 am and headed out to 25 to 30 Ft of water, around 13 miles offshore to fish for gag grouper. The seas were at 2 feet and the day warmed up nicely. The fishing was slow but steady with mostly grunts and black bass being caught except for Joe B.

Joe managed to hook and land 3 gag grouper, the rest of us were shut out. One gag was 24″ and the other two were just short of 24″ so were released to be caught another day.

Your Fishing Report On Black Friday, I took Terry F and his son Tyler, visiting from Atlanta, out for a day of offshore fishing. With a livewell full of pinfish and shrimp, we fished numerous spots off Bayport from 35 feet to 50 feet of water. By the end of the day, the fish box was full of large grunts and 2 large black sea bass. We released dozens of large red snapper to 22 inches, lots of small gag and red grouper. We had 5 or 6 cutoffs which were probably kingfish and a couple of schools of amberjack which came around the boat, but weren’t interested in any of our baits.
The water was as calm as a lake most of the day, which made for a really enjoyable day of fishing. We left for home around 3:30 and had a smooth ride back to Hudson.

Your Fishing Report Met my friend Rick Thompson and his friend Emery at Hernando Ramp at 6:00.  Loaded Rick’s 26′ Key West and headed out for bait, which was fairly easy.  Lots of Squirrel fish and porgy’s.  Then settled in for a long ride to the Middle Grounds.  Stopped on a wreck about 8 miles short of the grounds and immediately got pounded by a very large AJ.  Rick also hooked an AJ which got him in the wreckand broke off.   Caught some porgys and some ARS.  With very little coming in the boat but out of season fish, we moved another 8 miles to some of the grounds where teh Mangroves, Lanes and Porgys were chewing.  Loaded teh box with these fish, then moved to a third spot, trying for grouper.  More lanes and mangos and only 2 short gags.  At 2:30 we punched the Hernando headpin into the machine and it said 97 miles.  We settled in for the long ride home with a box full of good eating fish

Your Fishing Report I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

I recently moved to New Port Richey Gulf Harbors and joined the club last week. I am moving from San Diego where I had a 17′ Boston Whaler and fished the bay, the kelp beds and 3/4 day party boats.

I would really appreciate help from the members to take me out fishing.

I will share expenses and supply lunch.

Call me at 310-503-7984 anytime if you have a spot open.

Thanks,

Bob Marshall

Your Fishing Report The weather was perfect and the fish were hungry. Had a thirty minute fight on my lightest rod. Stripped 3/4 the line from my reel. Thank goodness he showed color near the boat just as my duo-lock snap swivel opened. Better to know what it was than to tell the story not knowing what it was forever.
It was darn….. giant t–tle. Caught a bunch of Mackeral a couple of trout and several sharks east of the sandbar depth 8′.
If this report includes a tournament entry please state the species and lenth of the fish caught in this box. Spanish Mackeral 22.5″

Your Fishing Report Rick Uffalussy and I set out of Hudson Beach around 9:30 AM. A short stop just off the channel at low tide yielded nothing. We proceed to just past the end of Hudson Channel. We stopped there for a few minutes and enjoyed catching a variety of small fish. Our next stop was the longest of the day at South St Martins Reef. We had great action there on white and green grubs, keeping five spanish mackerel. From there we headed south to “Mike & Bobs secret spot” in about 8-9 feet of water. There we had a good catch of a variety of fish keeping another two mackerel and a sea bass. The bass were biting on grubs, but the largest one took cut bait. As usual Rick swears he saw a monster cobia, but failed to bring it to the boat LOL. We headed home around 3:30 after a great day on the water.

Your Fishing Report Put in at nicks park with wife Marcia.  We went about three miles out from last channel marker and anchored up.  Put out my chumming device and before long Marcia caught a nice 16 inch Sea bass and I got a 16 inch Spanish.  Only stayed out about three hours but it was a nice day.  Caught lots of pins and sand perch.
