Tasty smorgasbord

Had some guys from Jersey yesterday out for some cobia. Kevin and his crew were patient but cloudy skies made cobia fishing tough. After we got one throwback cobia, we changed plans and tried some different types of fishing.  They brought in three nice keeper seabass and bunch of tasty triggers.  To top it off we landed three keeper flounder  with one being six pounds!  On a bobalama jig. Thanks guys!

Drum and sheepshead

Despite crummy weather conditions Del and his family came out.  The redfish were biting.  We landed a limit and released more fish up to 34 inches.  Some of these critters were landed on eight lb spinning gear!  Then tried the sheepshead and they were biting.  Thanks guys and Happy birthday!

Life is good!


Still gettin em!  We hit the triggers pretty good last couple trips!  The winds were calm and seas flat. So we went to an inshore wreck and landed triggers let a few go and kept some for dinner , very yummy!  We also encounter a few cobia but they have been small.  One cool thing we saw the other day was a big manta air out right next to us and as he leveled out there was a 20 lb cobia under his belly wiggling around. Not sure if he jumped with him or got sucked out by the 1000 lb behemoth.             Today hard winds terrible conditions but coerced ole Cb and John to go out and try for drum, his favorite fish!  So I was excited to get my opportunity to fire up the Southern run with its shallow draft full tunnel and go playing. First stop nada, second stop nada then Castaway Dave threw me a bone and got a few drummies.  That spot died so we moved off to another and got more!  Weeeeeee! Plus check out the bird chillin with Jr in the bean bag chair.  Out of the blue, new buddy just hanging. pretty cool! Also had the pleasure of a last minute cancellation. So made lemonade took the boss and kids out one more time out playing on the ocean.  Riding behind the boat wake, swimming and all it was Picture perfect!  Fat capt got out and carved a few turns too!
