Hard to believe not 10 to 20 or even 15, Light winds today, Holy moly a Weekend with a light breeze and temps in the 80’s Forget wishin time to go Fishin
TODAY EAST WINDS AROUND 5 KNOTS THEN BECOMING NORTHWEST IN THE
AFTERNOON. SEAS 2 FEET OR LESS. BAY AND INLAND WATERS SMOOTH. PATCHY FOG.
Sea Trout has to be the story today, there are plenty f them out there and DOA has the two best lures #2 the deadly combo a poppin cork rig with a DOA shrimp pre-attached and cast it out and keeping your rod tip low to the water jerk it hard to pop the cork, This makes the sound of a fish feeding and also jerks the Shrimp lure making it appear to have been escaping from a predator, all good.
The #1 lure is the tandem rig, often you will catch 2 fish at once, In the package you will see two jigs this is not 2 lures they are a tandem and you throw both at the same time, The Trout really seem to like the lure as it looks like 2 baits, this is a little different retrieve, cast it out then with at medium speed start reeling and move your rod tip up and down with a jigging motion, for best results this tandem lure need to “HOP” So if you are right handed keep the rod to the right side of your head , Left handed left side, with your rod tip up.
And when you get the first fish on, be ready for the 2nd one to hit.
Good Luck catch ya again later
Gag grouper will close for recreational harvest in most Gulf of Mexico state waters Dec. 4, with the last day of harvest being Dec. 3. All Gulf federal waters will close Dec. 3, with the last day of harvest being Dec. 2.
So here is a link to show you the Alligator Creek reef or 1 mile reef / concrete reef
Same place many names,
The key to catching Gags is understanding the fish, un-like a Red Grouper they tend to be just off the structure, So if bottom fishing or trolling stay 20 to 30 feet off to the side of the reef, while Gags feed on fish which hide in the reef they like being in the open so they can see what’s coming at them.
The Gags have been in the holes in the Harbor and both the Cape haze and Alligator creek reefs, happy hunting
