Rick had a 6 hour charter today. Water temp was 80° and clear at most
places. Had a mixed bag of fish today. Kept a couple flounder and 2 bonnethead
sharks, and released about 12 short speckled seatrout. Also lost a ladyfish
at the boat and a couple blue fish as well. Fished all the outgoing and
the first 45 minutes of the incoming. Most trout were caught on the incoming
tide. The trout this year are either in the 20+ inch range or like today
12.5 inches, just short. This is due primarily to the impact of the two
back to back cold winters that we have had that resulted in a trout fish
kill both years in a row.
Rick had a 6 hour charter today. Water temp was 76° and stained at
most places. We caught and released about 9 trout that were not quite
long enough. Did catch and keep 4 flounder, and released a couple more
of those as well. Got into a school of large ladyfish, that were alot
of fun catching, but we released them. Tom caught a nice sized sea turtle
that we released unharmed at the boat. He picked up a mud minnow on a
jig head. Fish were caught on shrimp and mudminnows.
Rick did a scouting trip this morning with his friend Tom. We fished the
high outgoing from 6:30 am until about 11 am, then returned to the dock.
Water temp was mid 70's and dirty. We had a west wind of 15 Knots that
had the sound stirred up. we caught a few Speckled sea trout and Tom caught
a very nice Blowfish. FYI they will bite you if you stick your finger
in their mouth. Tom also caught a nice bluefish and trout as well.
getting back to the dock, Tom was replaced at 11:30 by Capt. Jeremy and
his Mom Pam. Jeremy wanted to take us to an island that has a good many
sharks teeth. We spent about 4 hours looking and found about 95 total.
Capt Jeremy had done the same the last few times he has been out. All
in all a full day on the water. Jeremys mom found the biggest tooth that
was either a great white or a juvenile megladon. Jeremy found the smallest
and I only found about 10.
Rick had a 1 person 6 hour charter today. We left the dock at 7:00 am
. Too much wind later in the morning, but started off good. Water temp
was 75° and stained, to dirty in some places. The only picture I took
today was the sunrise.
caught 2 sharks, 1 we landed the other broke off at the boat. He didn't
want to hold the one that we boated, and decided not to keep him. So we
released the shark as well as an undersized seatrout. Missed a few trout
today , but did keep a decent bluefish. He was gill hooked and was bleeding,
so we bagged him and didn't take a picture of him. We saw some very nice
redfish, but were unable to get them to bite. Had a good day, but the
wind picked up after 10 am, blowing from the east and the tide was going
out, so the waves stacked up and the water turned dirty. He is returning
in June, so we will go after them again.
