FLORIDA: Decent Trout, Jacks, Ladyfish and Blues

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Dig-In-Anchors.comWell we are in the throws of our coldest weather of this season and this should motivate some fish while upsetting some others.

Recent trips included my long time clients the Browns from Evanston Ill. We worked hard but managed to put together a variety of fish including some decent Trout and Jacks,Ladyfish and Blues. With Dez Barry we found the action to be a little better as we got a red and a Snook as well as a mess of Trout and Ladys.

George Vogel went a couple of times and we had some fun with a 4Wt Flyrod and Trout and Ladyfish. Up the Sebastian river we got 8 Snook 2 LM Bass and a bunch of other stuff on 1/2/12

N Carolina: Offshore the Spanish and Blues are Thick as Mud

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Up and down the coast the fishing has been great.

Inshore, hugh reds are running the marsh along with the flounder.Early morning trout on topwater has beed good durning the week and not so hot on the weekends.

Offshore the spanish and blues are thick as mud from topsail to carolina beach.Spoons and daisy chains are making them hungry.

Further off, the kings are 18 to 25 miles off along with the mahi.

Live bait isnt working for me but the frozen baits skippin the top has got the fish up and feeding…

TAKE A KID FISHING!!

N. CAROLINA: Mackerel, Blues, Reds at Wrightsville Beach

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Hello from Southeast North Carolina, I hope everybody is having a good fishing season so far this year! I’ve had a good one so far myself; the water temps are going up so fast this year. We have had a lot of up and down weather lately, but the water temps are still going up fast. I thought we were going to be late on water temps this year but we are very close to being on time with past seasons.

The real winner for me lately has been those Spanish mackerel. My charters have done very good in the last few trips, with catches of twenty or more Spanish in a half day. Most of the Spanish are biting Clark spoons trolled behind #1 planner’s. The Clark spoons that are working the best for us are sizes; 00 and 0 in silver and pink flash. I really like the pink flash series, these spoons have worked very well for my charters. If you would like to go lighter; you can pull small deep diving lures as well.

When the Spanish are on top feeding and jumping, Maria jig spoons have been the trick. The colors that seem to be working are pink, green and blue in sizes seven & fourteen gram. (Hint): keep it to smaller lures when the weather gets hot! We also caught a few Bonita’s mixed in with the Spanish.

There has also been plenty of blue fish up and down the beach as well. Trolling or casting small deep divers has produced lots of bluefish around the inlets. We have also caught a hand full of chopper blues too. These choppers are running in the six to over fifth teen pound range. The choppers are biting big poppers and mid water stick baits. Color really does not seem to matter to those big blues, just a lot of action from the lure!

Bottom fishing just off the beach has produced some nice Black bass, grunts and small Grouper, of course on the lighter wind days! Jigs and squid are the trick, fishing the squid on simple two hook bottom rigs. Jig fishing using two to five once jigs in colors pink, green and red/white. We are fishing mostly hard and live bottom areas, in the one to ten mile range for the bottom fish. There has been some small and keeper Gray trout showing up on hard bottoms closer to the beach.

The flounder bite is picking up some too; we are starting to see a few fish inshore as well on the near shore reefs and wrecks. Most of the flounder inshore are mixed in size, but the fish in the ocean are a little better in size. Live bait and grubs are the best bet. Carolina rigs for the live bait and heavy jig heads for the grubs. I prefer bright grubs; Berkley Powerbait jerk shad and Saltwater Assassin’s sea shads in colors chart/diamond and silver mullet work very well.

Red fish have been hit or miss for me lately, some days we get a few some days we don’t. This should change when more live bait shows up in the creeks and channels. What Reds we are getting are hitting fresh bait and Berkley Gulp shrimp and peeler crabs (2″) size; on Carolina rigs and jig heads. We are starting to see a few Reds on the Flats, when we are fishing shallow waters for Reds we use Rattling corks. Rigging the Rattling corks with a Berkley Gulp 3″ Shrimp, really seems to get there attention.

Fishing Gear we use:

Reels Penn Conquer and Sargus spinning in sizes 2000 and 4000. Spiderwire Ultra-cast braid in 10 and 15#. Rods: Ugly stick lites 6’6″ and 7′ Med & Med-Heavy and the All Star ASR spinning rod ASR844S and ASR845S.
