Your Fishing Report Enjoying a little alone time on the water today.  A little breezy but not bad.  Had a screamer that came unbuttoned after awhile on Nickel Spook Jr topwater.  Heartbreaker.  Headed out to 6-7 feet near the Anclote Island and the channel marker and caught some mackeral with the silver spoon.  Got some “silver trout” as well as some small Specks.  Biggest Mackerel was a 21 incher.  No redfish and got bit off on the pinfish on the long line behind the boat.  Not bad, not good.  Just another day in paradise.  Boat on the trailer, time for some maintenance.  Guess I will be a “boat ho” and a “kayak bum” for a couple of weeks.

Your Fishing Report Hooked up with Mike T early out of Anclote. We went over for white bait by the sunken sail boat and there were plenty. Then we went inside  Anclote island and  on the first spot we stopped I hooked up with 3 red fish with 10 minutes. After that we didn’t get a bite at all. So we left and went  for cobia. We anchored up in front of the  power plant and  put out a chum bag. No cobia but lots of small sharks and remora’s, Mike did hook up with a nice size jack, which  we’ll be posting the video  in the near future.

the winds were very strong today 15-20 knots  in the afternoon.

Thanks Mike for a day on the water.

Your Fishing Report Trying to take advantage of a break in the wind, I took Mike S and Chuck Hammeke(out of town friend) out for a day of grouper fishing off Hernando. The first spot had lots of amberjack up to 33 inches and we boated 3 on live pinfish. I had a good hit on my flatline, probably a kingfish and it bit the hook off the leader wire. Shortly after this I got another good hit and after a long strong run and untangling the fish from around the engine, we managed to gaff a 50 inch, 35 lb kingfish. It was too big for the fish box so we put it in a forward storage locker after we bent it in half. We then threw a bag of ice on it. We spent the rest of the day moving around catching lots of keeper size red snapper, big grunts and lesser amberjacks. we caught 7 gag grouper to 23 1/2 inches but no keepers. Mike S also caught a 16 inch hogfish. By 3:30 we were 20 miles off Hudson, the wind was blowing 15 plus miles an hour and seas were up to 4 feet. Time to go in. My wife Judy said the reason we couldn’t scare up any grouper was that it was too close to Halloween.

Your Fishing Report We left Sea Pines in Hudson around 8 am and headed out.  It was very windy still early and going a long ways was not in the cards.  Settled in on the grass flats maybe a mile offshore in about 7 feet of water.  I was throwing a Tsunami Silver Spoon that is weighted and oblong shaped (not your average spoon) but cheap at walmart for 3.99  It  comes with swivel so doesn’t cause knots in your braid and you can cast it a mile.  Ripping the spoon I caught a few small trout,  a 18 in mackerel and many blue fish, lizard fish, and sand perch.  Bob caught a 12 in gag on a white grub and many small trout and ladyfish.  The highlight of the day was a 38 inch 30lb cobia that bit my spoon RIGHT at the boat as I was about to lift it out of the water.  Saw the take and saw it was a cobia right away.  He fought hard and it took me at least 20 minutes with a 3000 sized Daiwa BG 2015  and a medium light St Croix Mojo offshore.  Bob netted him and we didn’t have to chase him down.  What a beast.  3rd cobia this year and still not entered into COBIA damn-it!  I am signed up for mackerel finally so at least I can enter that.  Thanks Bob – love your new to you 22 Pathfinder!

Your Fishing Report I hooked up with neighbor Kurt in Gulf Harbors. We left at 7:30 and caught the out going tide,  We first started at my red hot red fish hole, and the  water was already tooo low to fish, so we went over  by Anclote island  north of the sunken sail boat. It was on fire again. We caught at least 25 trout  5  around 20″, and  lots of small Spanish macks. If you look at the pic closely you can see Kurt’s fish finder, we were fishing in 3.2′ of water. We caught them all on grubs, and it didn’t matter what color they were. We fished  there till the tide stopped, then we went into  sand bay and only caught  small trout  all under sized.

So then we went  for cobia in the north channel, at marker  7/8 and had 2 good bites but missed them. We did catch 4 almost keeper size gag grouper. They were 20″ to 21 1/2″. We were catching them on live pin fish on the bottom.

Another fine day of catching in the Gulf of Mexico

Your Fishing Report Hooked up with Mike Travica and we went out of Anclote river. We caught the last 1hr of low tide and we were fishing out by the Anclote island in about 2′ of water. We were catching nice macks and  nice size trout. The bite was great till the tide stopped.

Then we went for cobia and not a  bite at all, so then  we hit my red fish hole and on the first cast  I caught a 17 1/2″ red fish on a live shrimp, and  we never had another bite for 2 hrs, so we left and went back to where we caught  the fish  early in the morning, We caught another 10 small trout and then we called it a day.

Thanks for a good day on he water Mike T

Your Fishing Report My son’s girlfriend is having a baby, so there was a baby shower for her on Saturday. Not wanting to interfere with the lady’s fun day, my son asked his boss if I could tag along for the fishing trip on Saturday. Of course his boss said yes and I showed up at the boat at 7:15. The rest of the crew, minus the boss (he was smart to cancel and stay home) showed up about a half hour later, with LARGE platters of sandwiches, fruit and antipasto, plus a couple 12 packs of beer. It was blowing East at 15-20 all day and with an outgoing tide, Jupiter Inlet, which is not nice during the best of conditions was breaking with 10′ seas. Clearing the inlet in the 1969 55′ Rybovich (that last winter had a $450,000 referb done) was not exactly a piece of cake, but the boat handled well and seas went from 10′ to a 6′ washing machine. In short order, 3 of the other four passengers were calling to the sea god “Ralph” leaving me and one other guy who was not too coordinated in the sloppy conditions to fish. We actually started fishing about 8:45 and in the 3 hours we fished before the crew called uncle, I landed 5 of the 6 dolphin, average 10-12 pounds, making for a nice fish fry; the other un-sick man caught a large bonito and a dolphin. I missed and went 0 for 2 on sailfish bites. (I need a lot more practice on sails with dead bait and circle hooks)
I think of all the food brought on board, there was 2, maybe 3 sandwiches eaten, a couple of grapes and pieces of watermelon, and maybe 2 beers were cracked before we hit the inlet. My son Corey took the rest home and we had a great dinner that evening.

This is my son rigging in the cockpit with his mate climbing the ladder to the flybridge

Your Fishing Report Dave T, Fred M, Denis S and I fished the FOC Fall tournament from a rental tritoon boat from Belle Harbour Marina located on the Anclote River.  We fished primarily in front of the power plant on the flats and in deeper water in the N/S channel at the north end of the sandbar.  We caught a variety of fish. Lots of small trout but Denis did get a 18″ to enter and finish 3rd with.  Fred caught a nice 23″ Spanish Mackerel that got him a 1st.  Dave T landed a 301/2″ Cobia that was short but will be entered for the year long tournament . We also caught sharks and blow fish. It was a great day with lots of fish being caught.  Thanks to my fellow shipmates for making it a fun and rewarding tournament for our boat.
If this report includes a tournament entry please state the species and lenth of the fish caught in this box. Dave T.  30-1/2″ Cobia
