Last 24 hour recap 1/6/12 (SMOKER kings,Yellowtails, Mangroves, Porgies,Groupers, AJs
I have been super STOKED and blessed that my calendar (dance card) is getting full.
Saturday, I had a group of friends on my boat for a 1/2 day. We shared fellowship and GOOD fishing.
These guys all work out and between the 5 of em we are talking over 1/2 a ton!
Set first runner out on flat and gets SMOKED by a 30+king that we iced down.
Had another king 40+ eat a kite bait and the guys did not want more than 1 to smoke so we released em!! (yeah for SKA boys!)
Had another 30+ we released and kept 2 15lb'rs for buddies grill. Had the bottom rods out and steady action in the S current!
I fished mostly Dodge wall to breakings in 110-130'
Gang Must have caught 50+ fish, AJ's,snappers Porgies, YT"s and groupers. (all groupers and Vermilions released due to season closure)
With 5 guys to tend to I did not really have time to take pics. (sorry)
Had a 1/2 day trip this AM w new client Mike and his son MJ.
They are new to boating and asked if I could teach a bit about bottom fishing.
As the first bait hit bottom bowed up on a nice mangrove 16". Drop again and MJ is tight.
Only fished about 30 minutes when MJ got a lil queasy. Dad asked if OK if we call it early but let me tell you snapper were chewing.
In 30 minutes we had 2 mangos, 2 tails, 2 porgies and released runners, porkfish and even a slippery......
Would you like to learn more about bottom or kite or wahoo fishing? I'd love to help!
Little Bob is off his rocker" waiting for lunch (sauteed yellowtail)
Nice job E$! Looks like I need to book that dance card soon!
Nice sunrise pic
Sounds good Pairadox, I'd love to be back in a "this is worth 5 minutes" situation. Our maiden voyage was SICK and your team of guys is so first class! (plus it's reassuring having VERY competent medical help...)
I soooo need to get on the Go Pro Hero 3 wifi program!
FYI I'm slated to head to West End on a 64' this Wednesday / Thursday and then a 65 Hatty so I should have current data for surgical strike!
Thanks sooo much Bo! In the past 6 days I had New years, Birthday, 10 year wedding anniversary and most important WORK and happy customers!
Little Bob is stoked too because he is a vested partner. He gets a "piece" of ALL the "action" (literally!!)
Now he has to act as referee because Mongo and Daffy want to "muscle in" on his turf! IMG_2802.jpg
Good job buddy, especially with the south tide. Waiting for a good day to go bottom fishing, might have to bring a camera for a change (and hope it doesn't jinx me). Buddies Run hasn't seen blue water in weeks...
Still no pomps in the Jupiter area and getting tired of ladyfish.
