Left his dock and jean threw out a gold spoon and within 5 minutes ties into a nice size fish ( see video). What a nice way to start the morning.

Then we went for cobia in G.H. and not much. Just as we were ready to leave I threw my white grub by a marker in S. channel and I hooked up with a med size cobia.

Then we went to the sugar trout area, and not much there either. we caught maybe 25-30 between the 3 of us, but we had fun catching nice size black tip sharks( around 3′ long). We caught 6 and called it a day.

Thanks for a great day on the water.

State the length and species in the box below Kayak fishing with members Jim Mac, Joe, Barry, and Phil out in front of Anclote Pier and Key Vista Park looking for trout. We had live and frozen shrimp, greenbacks, pinfish, and the trusty MirroLure MR17 in green.  We probably caught 45 trout but only 6 were keepers. The biggest trout at 19 1/2″  Joe caught the bonus fish of the day a 31 1/2″ cobia.  Nice day out on the water.  Glad we could get Jim out!!!

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Denis S, Chet J and I joined Capt. Mike S for a day of offshore fishing at 7:30 am. It was a brisk morning but the seas were calm and it warmed up to a comfortable temperature later in the day. Mike put us on fish at the very first spot he stopped at in 50+ feet of water. It was like we were overrun with fish but we caught fish steadily for about 4 hours. We caught keeper size Red Grouper, Gags and Snapper as well as shorts of the same, to bad they are out of season. Denis S caught his first gag and snapper in the Gulf. We also caught some really nice size grunts and black bass. Denis also landed a good size octopus. It was a great day of fishing with FOC friends. Congratulations to Capt Mike for anchoring and getting us back to the marker within touching distance on one try. We moved on to a second location a few hundred feet away and picked up a few more fish but time was short and we headed in.

Headed out from GH with Mike Kaplan and Bob Sherley for some inshore action. Started at the Sand bar, then to the south side of Anclote to cast net some white bait and to fish for white trout, then in front of power plant before heading to Marker 4. We caught a few whiting, white trout, small speckled trout and Mackerel on spoons, live white bait, and soft plastics. Not an incredible day of fishing but a good time with friends. One cobia was caught by Mike Kaplan with live white bait free lined in front of the power plant.

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Hooked up with Jim T. from the club and my bass pro charter captain from penna. for a day off shore.

We got some pin fish and headed off shore, to Pasco 2. On the way out Jim was driving by all the crab pots and saw a tripletail on one of them, so we turned around and Jim put on a live shrimp on. I got behind the wheel and brought Jim within 40′ of the pot and he threw it out and soon as it hit the water the fish went after it, See video for the catch. The triple tail was 22 3/4″

We fished off shore for about 2 hours and nothing, so we decide to come in shore to the sugar trout honey hole, and we preceded to catch one after another. We caught at least 75,consiting of sugar trout, macks and speckle trout in about 2 hrs, all on all different color jigs.

Thanks for a the triple tail Jim, will be thinking of you when we are eating it.

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Team Uffa hooked up with Mike T. today for a great day of CATCHING.  We went to the sugar trout hot spot and soon as we dropped our lines the bite was on, but not sugar trout but  spotted trout. They ranged from 14-17″.

Then  the macks moved in for a while and we all got some, along with some cut offs.

And then we moved a little bit and the sugar trout was  on fire for about 2 hrs. They ranged from 12″ to 17″ and they were nice n fat

So I guess between the 3 of us we caught at least 75-100 fish today.

We didn’t keep any fish at all today, just catch & release day.

Thanks for a great day of fishing Mike

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Denis S and I went out at about 9:30 am, an hour before low tide to check out a new trolling bar Denis had installed on the boat.  It was chilly but we first stopped at the spoiler islands at the end of the Anclote River without too much luck so we moved south to the area near the crab pots in 7′ of water and bingo the bite was on.  Not big trout, mostly 14″, but a lot of them.  After catching non stop for an hour or so we decided to check out new place. At this point we had caught around 25 fish each. We tried another area in front of Howard park but no luck so we moved out to the channel on the west side of Anclote Key.  We fished the sand bar area because to me it looked like it should hold flounder. Sure enough we found flounder in about 5′ of water on the sand.  We moved around to several places along the channel and hooked up with Mangrove Snapper, about 10″ long, one right after the other.  At around 2:30 pm we had headed back in after a full day of catching. We had caught at least 100 fish in a short stretch of time.  True not many keepers in the lot but a whole lot of fun.  We used white, yellow and pink plastic all day on 1/4 oz jigs.  I am headed back soon with proper flounder set ups for sure.

We hit a few spots out in front of G.H., but no luck, so we ended up by the sunken sail boat and had a great time CATCHING , sugar & spotted trout, and we also managed to land 2 keeper Spanish mackerel.

The  sugar trout were running around 12-16″. We were catching them on a 1/8′ oz jig tipped with a small piece of a white, or yellow grub.

It was a little chilly in the morning but  warmed up nicely.

Can’t wait to get out with you again Jim.

Went into salt springs on low tide and caught a xxx inch red and a 14 inch sheepshead. Got back to Brasher just as rain started, fun day, nobody else fishing, probably much smarter than me.

Your Fishing Report: If this is a tournament report do not state the fish’s length in this box. State the length and species in the box below Mike K, Joe, Chet, and I headed out of Nick’s Park at low tide around 6am. We picked up some pinfish from traps Chet put out the night before. He caught a cobia while out placing the traps! We went to a variety of spots around 50-60 miles out looking for Red Grouper. We ended up with 2 nice size ones and 3 additional keeper sized Grouper on live pins, cut bait and squid. I caught several small lane Snapper on request from Rick Uff for his dinner Saturday. My biggest Red Grouper ever I got in with a 4000 sized spinning reel and a 7.5 foot spinning rod. What a fight. Also caught were some nice released Red Snapper and some lesser Amber Jack. Mike’s descending device for pressure affected fish saved the lives of many released fish. All in all a great day of catching many and varied fish during a safe trip out. Thanks to Mike K for another memorable outing.
