Home Southeast General Fishing & The Outdoors


I have two reports at this time one for the 23rd and one for the 26, neither one was very productive so far is number of fish but extremely productive and making new friends and team members. Our two new friends will be (Jersey John and, Conner) both of which are from as you can guess jersey.

On the 23rd we will be joined by Lewis and Jordan on that trip we quickly found a number of live bait south east of the inlet where I joined several boats already in the progress of catching some greenies. We quickly fill the live well with more than enough bait for the day, the two new guys have done some limited offshore fishing and were fascinated by the bait catching method.

After catching the bait we headed to deeper water dropping the lines in at about 100 feet and we were immediately interrupted by a nice dolphin hit on the flat line unfortunately as quick as he was he was back off.

We continued our East trek but we were unable to score anything, we shouted out to Tom On His Pursuit but got no response. We will later find out that he was in seven 800 feet and will score 11 dolphin during the day. Tom is legendary for his Marlin capabilities.

The trolling times more without any luck until catching a good-sized slinger which we quickly gave an ice bath. Not sure that he enjoyed it as much as we did.

The second trip on the 26th well be greeted by a somewhat more choppy seas, then the day they will increase and decrease several times and when in the Gulfstream some of the rollers could approach 5 foot.

The second day will also show no signs of life bait at any of our favorite spots. During the day if fishing God's and the weather gods seem to frown upon us. We will lose several nice size dolphin and our arms will be tired from holding on the were not tossed out of the boat.

Also lost sonar about halfway through the day and my Garmin GSD 22 appears to be the culprit. I may send it in for repairs about $100, or just find new GSD 24 anybody with any input it would be appreciated thanks in advance.
I have rendered up a short video more to feature John and Conner, thanks guys I enjoyed your help on the boat.And the pop-ups are back
