Feb 03 2008

Had a tough trip today inshore. The water has gotten really cold over the last few days close to the beach. We had to move offshore to be able to put some fish in the boat. The spiny dogfish ate us up wherever we went, but we managed to catch some black bass and other fish offshore. Marie from Atlanta, GA, caught one nice, genuine red snapper.

March 13 2008

Over the past week, I've done a lot of half day trips. We had a lot of catches of black sea bass inshore 4-8 miles out. Here's a good picture of a rare fish in our waters this time of year. It comes from up in the north Atlantic - a tautog, or what we call slimy rocks. It lives along the bottom, in and amongst rocks, wrecks, mussel beds, bridge pilings or other bottom features, but we very seldom catch these down here. Got some gulfstream charters coming up Easter week. I can't wait to get out there and see what the tuna and wahoo will be doing. They have slowed down the last couple of days from other boats because the water is too cold. That should change at the end of the week.

A group of men from a church group were down and wanted to do some fishing. We did an afternoon trip fishing about 5-8 miles out. There are a lot of sea bass on the beach right now. Most fish average from 10-11 inches. We caught fish non-stop but due to the new law with black bass at 12 in., we didn't get to take many home.

On my afternoon trip, I had a family from Wisconsin. The black bass were still chewing hard, but it was hard to get them over 12 in. We ended up with a nice family fish fry amount anyway.

March 31 2008

The wind has been blowing the last couple of days and I haven't done any fishing. I've been working on a new 42'Fish Hook II boat. This boat is a battle tank that will be really comfortable platform for charter fishing. It will have air conditioning, heat, and a brand new power plant. You won't want to get off this boat at the end of the day.

Jim and his group have been fishing with me for the past three years. You might have noticed him in previous pictures with wahoo and dolphins. We had a late start this morning so we didn't go all the way to the gulfstream, but we got some trips next week for dolphin and wahoo if the weather holds up.

Mahi mahi are biting real good in the gulfstream. Fished with the crew from Anchor Marina in the Dixie Chicken tournament today and came in 3rd place with aggregate weights and 1st place for the biggest king mackeral. We had a good bite but lost 8 fish. One of those fish was a wahoo. We really needed that one to get 1st place. But anyway, I've fished the tournament four times and always won some money.
