  1. A few of the nicer ones we managed to nab out of 50+ in the far backcountry almost exclusively caught on artis made by DOA...… One eyed Willy! Fish of the day....
  2. Took a weekday off to take my old friend Captain Tom Ross out to Chokoloskee to fish the ENP and the 10K Islands. Tom is currently running a 74' Merritt for an owner out of Annapolis, but the boat is in the yard for some work through the end of the year. I recently helped Tom find a 2003 Maverick Master Angler that he is really enjoying. Some of you may have met Tom and his lovely wife Ann at the MOT. Tom is an accomplished blue water captain and pretty handy at the inshore stuff too! Weather report was favorable; the tides were big with the new moon but a little less favorable (8:19 a.m. low at Chatham River) as I tend to favor a falling tide in that area. We launched at OR at first light and ran south. Fishing primarily with soft plastics (Zman jerk baits in black and gold or Slayer or Down South paddle tails in several different colors; MirrOlure Lil John's in Watermellon Ice), we really got into the snook and trout but had trouble finding reds or tarpon. The snook were on the smaller side except for two slot sized fish that Tom brought to the boat. We got into some really nice trout on the low tide in a channel that runs parallel to a key. Over all, a great day with a good old friend in a magical place.
  3. It was all about variety yesterday in the ENP. We launched early at OR (with 25-30 others from the Naples area who were entered in a Red/Snook tournament). Low tide at 6:43 a.m. so we would have incoming water all morning followed by a falling tide in the afternoon. Weather was overcast, but nice. Winds were calm. Fished with my buddy, Mike (InTheSlot12), who was injured in a boating accident back in June. This was his first time on the water since then. We caught just about every species--reds, snook, trout, jacks, ladyfish--but the capstone was this large tarpon that we caught at the end of the day along a shore line on the incoming tide. Most of the catch was on hard plastic sinking twitch baits or soft plastics. The tarpon ate a soft plastic jerk bait. I lost one after one jump that took a purple DOA Baitbuster; that would have closed the inshore grand slam for me. But Mike brought it home for the boat grand slam! The day would not have been complete without spending some time with Ranger John Kalafarski to hear his stories about snook otoliths, the importance of no see ums (ceratopogonidae) to the chocolate industry, and this Burmese Python skin.
  4. InTheSlot12 (Mike) and I fished his beautiful 18' HPX-V on Sunday, leaving the marina at Flamingo at first light. It was windy with temperatures in the high 40's to low 50's. Water temperatures were in the low 50's as well. But, there was a warming trend and favorable tides--high at East Cape was around 5:30 a.m. The forecast was for clear skies and a high of almost 70 degrees. We were hopeful the fish would be ready to eat after last week's cold snap. Although I am primarily an artificial bait fisherman, we figured the shrimp would be big and hearty so we stopped at Don's and filled the bait well. We thought the snook would be in the deeper canals, creeks and rivers in the East Cape area, holding in structure on the down current side on that falling tide. What a great day! We brought between 25-30 snook to the boat--most slot size, a few smaller and 3 or 4 that were over slot. All of the fish were bright and shiny silver, fat and healthy and all were carefully handled and safely released. It's great to see the snook population in such good shape. We also had a nice black drum and a big (for Flamingo) trout. Overall, a great day. Here are a few pictures of the snook we caught, almost all with shrimp on jig heads. Just beautiful fish. There were also some HUGE crocks enjoying the sunny day!
