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.

Met Paul Pomietlasz at Chet’s house at 8:15.  Chet became sick the previous evening and bowed out, so Paul & I took off to fish the club tournament on this chilly morning.  Started by Durney Key, looking for trout with no success,  Went into Westport and found a school of redfish but only managed one before the rest spooked away.  Looked around in this area for an hour or so, until the incoming tide ended, then went to an area north of marker 4 looking for mackerel.  Hung a chumbag and fished hard with spoons, jigs and live shrimp, but the water was too dirty and cold.  Moved South, just past the sandbar and continued to chum but still no takers.  Tried another couple spots for trout but struck out and called it a day to arrive at the weigh-in.  Turns out this was a hard day of fishing as only three fish were weighed in and I caught the only legal red for a $50.00 first place

Team UFFA hooked up with Jim T and a new fisherman ( STEVE).

We left from Jim’s house and went out 24 miles. Steve had some gag spots to share. The first spot didn’t produce anything, but the second spot was HOT. The first 3 drops Steve had  3 keeper gags  on, but 1/2 way up the TAX  man came  and took half. See pics.
Steve managed to get  1 gag up to the surface  and was 28″.

Then we moved to 2 -3 more of his spots and we were catching gags at all of the spots. Then Steve dug out of his cooler and it was frozen octopus. He gave Jim a piece and it wasn’t 1 minute Jim had the biggest gag of the day. It was over 30″.

Jean and I were catching gags but no keepers, close but no cigar.

We all were catching  nice ars and they all were over 20+” and hitting both live pins and frozen sardines.

We all want to thank Jim for a fun day on the water

I rented a pontoon boat from Belle Harbor yesterday and went fishing with my wife Sylvia. It was the first time she was out on the Gulf and she was so excited.

We picked up the boat at 8:30 AM at low tide. The sun was out and the Gulf was like a lake with very little wind. As soon as we passed the marker they told us we could go North we started to drift fish.

I read reports and talked with Mike B to get some tips. The report from Mike S came in very handy to use long shanked hooks. We used flylined shrimp with a 20 lb leader. The Spanish Mackerel were nonstop from 9AM until 12:30 PM wnen we took a lunch break because Sylvia’s arms were getting sore. She even got a little hammerhead shark.

The biggest was 27″ that I caught and Sylvia got a couple of twins that were 23″. We took pictures I hope it works.

At 1 PM after lunch the wind picked up the water got choppy and the bite died off. We went back to the dock at 3PM.

It was a great day on the water.
