Default Fishing Reports

We are into the winter fishing pattern now. You have to pick your days between the cold fronts now, but, the fish still bite even in the winter time. On the inside, you can still pick up a stray flounder once in a while along with some speckled trout. The inshore reefs are producing some big red drum and grey trout and you can get some black bass also in these areas. Offshore, bottom fishing is good as is king mackeral in the usual holding areas for this time of year. I'd start my search in the Horseshoe areas to the Tower. But, the big news right now is the Bluefin Tuna that are here. The hot spots lately have been in the knuckle buoy and the fairway buoy areas. Watch for the bait and birds and for the Tuna's themselves actually breaking the water as they feed on the bait. This is a new fishery to this area and if not properly prepared, these fish can be and are a dangerous adversary, don't cut any corners or take any chances with these fish, go "by the book" as they are EXTREMELY POWERFUL!!!! Go have some fun and be safe!! Till next time, FISH ON!!! Capt Butch and "Private Bodie' the fish dog says HI!!!.

We went out yesterday to see if we could get some black bass and trout along with maybe big red fish. The small craft advisories and the rough conditions posted were enough for me to stay inshore. With the full moon conditions upon us, I have never seen so much "dirty" water and at the "WOFES" a 16 ounce weight would not hold your bait on the bottom. Also, I use 60 feet of 5/16 chain and a 22 pound plow anchor, and this would not anchor my boat. Needless to say, the fishing conditions were the worst I have ever experienced, so at around 9:00AM we gave it up for a better day. The fishing was so bad, all the birds in the area came to our boat in hopes that if we caught something we would share it with them.When a pelican can't catch anything to eat, conditions are "BAD"!!! Well, it was obvious that we didn't need the bait we had today, so, we broke open the bait cooler and turned our trip into a bird feeding trip. We left the area knowing that because we were there today, a lot of brown pelicans can go to roost that night and not be hungry. It's not always about the fish you catch, It was a unique experience!!!! Till next time,(and better fishing conditions) FISH ON!!! Capt Butch and "Private Bodie" the fish dog says, I always bark at the birds, yesterday, I looked over the side of the boat, I thought I was a goner for sure!!!
