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
If this report includes a tournament entry please state the species and lenth of the fish caught in this box. 47 1/2″ AJ

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 Left from Anclote Park this A.M. with friend Joe, and after catching some whitebait we spent the day catching spanish mackerel and ladyfish. A good time was had by all and it was a good way to spend some time on the water while waiting for the offshore weather to improve.

Your Fishing Report Denis S and I headed out of Tarpon Springs at 8:30 am just after dead low tide. We trolled out the river with no hits. We stopped at the sandbars on the north side of the channel to cast at some red fish but they weren’t biting. Finally we cut into the flats and found several low spots that yielded quite a few trout and ladyfish. All in all I would estimate that we caught between 30 and 40 trout and 6 to 8 really large ladyfish. There around 4 or 4 keeper size trout to 18″. The weather was great all day and the wind didn’t come up until around 1pm. I was a good day on the water and we had a lot of fun fishing.
