You don’t know me very well but you have helped me enormously in both buying the right tackle and with your reports. I wanted to give back and send you a gulf report. I was out yesterday and fished from 75 feet to 110 near the Bayronto. I tried high speed trolling for wahoo for the first time for a few hours without any luck. The red grouper were everywhere my largest was 27 inches. I did catch numerous lanes as well and had a school of dolphin under the boat for an hour while drifting for grouper. They were in 75 feet. I was out of bait and threw everything I had at them with no luck. They would chase everything but no strike. Beautiful day with a light breeze and 1 foot seas. More life from 70-90 than 90+.
On the Flats
Red fish were hiding from me this weekend, But on the East side against the first row of Islands Snook, Snapper and Tarpon, all were pretty easy, The tarpon wanted top water, The larger Heddon torpedo or The Skitter walk, and it was darker colors, like gold or bronze colors. The Trick to the hook up was starting and stopping the lure, short hard pull, then a complete stop for 2 seconds, and repeat. Snook seem to like the new Rapala Rip-stop, cast close up under the mangroves and 2 short twitches to the rod tip, pause and do that a couple times and it no hit reel it slow to moderate back to the boat had one hit it like that on the way in 10 feet from the boat. For the flounder a shrimp under a poppin cork, shallow water and the shrimp about 6 inches off the bottom.
Open Harbor report.
Lady fish and Jacks are swarming the Harbor, and the lure of choice is the Storm twitch, reel and pause or twitch it and they can not resist. once you catch a Lady fish, Put it under a float about 5 feet and let it swim away from the boat and Give a Hundred pound tarpon an aerobic work out, Keep a tarpon’s heart healthy.
