I recently moved from Pompano to St. Pete, and I must say the fishing is MUCH different. I'm a long way away from watching John McKroid hoist a 70lb wahoo out of a kayak, but learning the inshore game.
Launched under the Tom Stewart Causeway in Madeira Beach just after sunrise. Pitched live shrimp under the bridge for sheepshead with moderate success. Worked the flats north of Bay Pines and got slammed by a 32" snook that took me right into the mangroves. After that, trolled around looking for solid places to throw my crab traps. All in all, pretty good day. I hope my friends back in Pompano are keeping the lines tight!
LOL -- Good post ! Glad to see you continue activity with your kayak -- Nice Snook ! You will be missed on the East coast. Your are the kayak-er that taught me how to fish off the beach without having to pay to park. I still use that spot, once in a while. That was a funny trip we did when I tried to anchor on the Guy Harvey in strong current -- too bad there were no fish. We never did one of those snapper trips that you are good at. I hope your move was onto bigger and better things. St. Pete is reportedly nice. Anticipating more posts as you continue to learn your new fishery. We will do our best to keep the lines tight -- weather permitting.
Fishing beautiful Destin / Ft Walton Beach area!
