    Snook, Redfish, & other species - Sebastian area 11-30-12

    I was able to fish my boat three times(2 night trips and 1 light tackle inshore trip) this week with three different crews (some expert fisherman and some novice). I had a blast on all three trips as they are all great people to be on a boat with. This morning was non-stop action throwing mirrodines, gulp shrimp, skitterwalks, x-raps, and live mullet; landed close to 50 fish this morning (a few snook and loads of jack crevalles, ladyfish, mangrove snapper, sail cats, and spanish mackerel). On the night trips we caught big reds, snook, seatrout, and ladyfish. Just couldn't find the tarpon to complete the slam. Here are some of the better pics:

    Are you only allowed to catch huge fish on that boat?

    Nice work...that is a great fishery.
    I live so close to the ramp I should fish it more.... but idle speed sux....
    I used to really be "into" the Tarpon fishing....and it is do-able year round.

    I bet your buddy is hooked on snook fishing after landing that stud on light tackle! Great work.

    Fishboy,

    You are correct: a red, snook, and a trout are technically a slam; but we were fishing for drag screamers and a little 24" trout does not stand much of a chance on the 20lb gear we were using that night. Now an 80lb poon, well that's a different story.
