State the length and species in the box below After a week of too much wind I was finally able to get out on the water for a day of fishing with my better half Carol. Carol had not been out on our boat, we had always used one of the Belle Harbour boat when she fished. Today it was great weather and no wind. We caught a lot of trout at the mouth of the Anclote River and a few keepers. Carol had a huge cobia on for almost 10 minutes but she was using a rod with 10lb braid and the cobia won by breaking off about 10 yards from the boat. Hopefully the next one will hook up on heavier gear. It was a great day on the water.

We had some  small live pins so we went into sand bay to site fish for cobia.  We saw a few  over rays, but  would not hit our pins, then I saw a single cobia swimming by the boat and threw my pin in front and he hit it, Took me about 8 minutes to bring it in.  So we put it in our fish bag and then we went for trout  out buy the sand bar.

We were catching a little bit of everything, blues, grunts, puffers, ladies, and  a few nice keeper trout.

Next trip out  Jean & I will be site fishing for George so he can get a cobia before he goes back up north.

thanks for a great day of catching today George.

State the length and species in the box below After finishing my chores around the house & Yard this afternoon I decided to see if the white bait I put in my bait hotel 17 day ago were still alive. Sure enough there were still some swimming around. I decide to grab my fishing pole with a float and #2 circle hook. Put a white bait on and tossed it in off my dock. Within 5 minutes the drag started to sing. A beautiful Snook broke the surface so I fought it from cutting me of on the dock and boat lift poles. Even though Snook are not in season it was a nice way to end the day! The other amazing thing is that the white bait are lasting that long in my Bait Hotel!

State the length and species in the box below Bob B, Denis S, Butch K and I fished together during the 5.11.17  FOC fishing tournament.  We fished mostly the areas 1 mile north and south of the Anclote river on the east side.  We hooked at least 50 fish between the 4 of us, mostly trout.  We also caught a gag grouper, black bass, mangrove snappers and catfish.  It was a good day and Denis S ended up with a two trout entry.  It was a great day weather-wise and an even better day of fishing with friends.

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 Brumley, Robert Grover and myself left Mike’s dock at 8:00 AM.

We started right in the South channel and drifted towards the power plant. We were fishing jigs, gold spoons and nekid ball jigs. We were all catching a few than Robert put on a bobber with a 3′ leader and a 4″gulp. Bang within a few minutes he caught his 2nd place 16″ trout. That gave him a second place in both this years tournaments congrats to Robert!

We drifted all the way down to the flats and Mike took his boat close enough for us to cast for redfish. He did not even have the chance to fish he just gave us a shot at a redfish.

Than Robert saw jumping fish about 1000 yards away and we went to check it out. I saw a small Cobia and than a monster cobia went right under the boat just cruising. I have to say that got my heart beating it was so big. We forgot about trout for about an hour and were cobia fishing it was so much fun.

We got back in tournament mode and started using gulp and the bite picked up considerably especially when the wind set us up on a nice drift in front of the power plant. We got a few 14″ trout but just the one keeper.

Mike got a big Remora the largest fish of the day.

Robert and I want to thank Mike very much for providing us with a great day of fishing and an enjoyable day with friends.
