Home Panhandle General Fishing & The Outdoors

8/16 - 8/22 Keys adventure

The new crew showed up about the crack of noon, but we were able to at least get enough to eat with a few to spare

Sunday saw a few more bugs along with a few good grouper and snapper to spear
Love the life in the bay, as you are subject to see anything at any given time

First time to the holes will often net a few good fish if you are careful

By Monday, the bug count is in the mid to upper 20's, with some good fish for variety.


On Tuesday, our primary fish hunter was a bit under the weather, so we got our neighbor to help out on the bugging. Still in the upper 20's for 6 men, but a fun day.

By Wednesday, the bug count is approaching 30 and we are finding a few bugs in spots we checked over a week ago. Not 10-20, but 1-2 legals on each spot

By Thursday, we are filling our 6 man limit from 9:30-4:30, with some good sized bugs


The last day of the "Guys Week" saw our 35th bug by 3:00, but it took over an hour to get the last bug for our limit


Looking forward to the final week! The next crew isn't as experienced, but we shall see!!
In my many years, I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame,two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.-- John Adams
