For Christmas my girl got me a flounder gigging set up so Monday night it was game time. Set out in fort peirce before the sun went down and played with some lady fish and snappers on rod and reel. When it got nice and dark we got up in skinny water and went the searching. We never came across any flounder but man did we see crazy amounts of sea life sleeping sheephead, lobster, eals, cudas, snook, trout, and sting rays. We put a few convicts in the cooler and I can not wait to get out and do it again! If we weren't going cobia hunting the next morning I think we would of been out there all night. ADDICTED!!!
Tuesday morning we broke SLI inlet around 700 and filled livewell up with runners and pilchards. Found the runners right out side of inlet and the pilchards were just north of the sandpile. We begin hitting every wreck/reef we new between SLI and the Powerplant under 80'. Picked away at small snapper, seabass, and some other trash fish. Around 11 or flatline gets a little knock and then a nice run capt sets the hook and its game on. Work this fish to the boat and ends his day in the kill box! First cobia of the season and a Cobia cherry is popped. Congrats Mike! Worked some more areas with no more cobies. hit the Powerplanet and the spinner sharks were putting on a killer show. Awesome flat day on lake atlantic with dinner. ADDICTED!!!
