Snook and Black Drum

Fished with Mike today. We headed out into the backcountry and found a bunch of fish. We caught over a dozen snook to about twelve pounds. We also caught a bunch of black drum from three pounds to over thirty pounds. We rounded out the day catching specks, lady fish, sheepshead, and jacks. We had fish all day.

Cape Sable

Patty, the boys, and I headed into the backcountry today. We caught several snook, tons of specks, jacks, and big lady fish today. We also caught two bluefish of all things. I guess they follow me around.

Back in Florida

Patty, the boys, and I headed out yesterday for our inaugural Florida trip. We stayed close and caught a bunch of nice jacks and snappers. It was great catching fish in warm weather again.

Time for Florida

There are still stripers around and the tog are biting but things are starting to get cold. The bass will bite for a few more weeks but now is the time to plan ahead for Florida. I fish out of Islamorada, Florida Keys from Christmas through Easter (December through April). My specialty is winter weekend fishing getaways. I will help plan and arrange your fishing weekend in Islamorada. A standard weekend involves flying down on Friday night. We fish a mega day Saturday (sunrise to sunset) and a full day Sunday (7-3). Three day weekends are two mega days and a full day. I can help with flights, car, and lodging. This is a great mini vacation you can fit around work. If mega days aren't your thing, we simply fish around your schedule. We catch fish regardless of the weather and it is always a blast. Most days involve several different types of fish and good numbers of them. It will definitely be a trip you will remember. Please call if you're interested and I will give you prices and more information. Afternoons are best to reach me at 609-827-3442.

For more information, review my blog posts from last winter for more pictures and reports from last year's trips. These weekends also make a great gift. Gift certificates are available for the holidays.

Forty Plus Stripers

Fished today with John, PJ, and Colin. We headed out in much better conditions today. We decided to jig. We found the birds early and the fish. It was good but the birds were a little schitzo and the fish were constantly moving around. We caught a bunch and then settled in to catch them with out the bird's help. We dialed them it and caught one after another. The biggest of the day was around 17 pounds and we ended up releasing over forty stripers. We also had a few gator blues mixed in as well.

Striper Saturday

Fished yesterday with Kevin and Zack. It was blowing northeast and rough. We headed out anyway. We stayed close and trolled up twelve stripers and kept three. The biggest fish was around 30 inches. It was steady action, but mostly one at a time. Rough or not, it was a beautiful day.
