Day to relax 6-27-13

Started the day about 7am at Sand Key in Clearwater. Was wanting to surf fish on the beach side but signs said that was a no go. Went to the other side and fished the causeway area. First time in this area and first time trying the causeway. Didn’t do much, just a couple of catfish. Decided to take a break and relax at the beach for awhile as I figured out my next move. Decided to give a try on the headboats out of that area. Never tried the ones in Clearwater before because I always viewed them as a touristy thing. Sure was right. Decided on the half day with the double eagle. I really liked the boat. Nice inside seating, it was like a movie theater. And the seating in the fishing area left a lot of room behind you for the mates to travel back and forth. But the fishing was actually worse than I expected. First it took an hour and 15 minutes to get to the first stop. So double that for the roundtrip time. Moved around about 3 times, so maybe another 20 minutes. Now subtract that time from a 4 hour trip. Not much fishing time at all, which would explain the total catch of 8 grunts and one sea bass for 3 people, all for $57.00 each. Ok, so lesson learned. Hubbards or 2 Georges.

    Sorry to hear that but lesson learned. We used to fish thier all day boat and did rally well. Not sure if that captain is still there but he was a petty young guy.
