MISSISSIPPI: Light tackle Fishing, Reds, Sheepshead, Black drum

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

That darn o’l WHIPASNAPA CHARTER BOAT has taken a large variety of guest (friends) on some great light tackle trips last few days. Guest have come from, Illinois, Ohio, S. Carolina, Louisiana, and others. Have consisted of doctors, lawyers, pilots, chemist, computer techs, engineers and many others. And we have caught just about everything that swims, mostly black drum, strong sheepshead bite also, trout and ground mullet, reds just to name a few. Three very good trips!!

As everyone knows it takes good karma and a few other things to make a trip a lil more memorable. And on these 3 everything just seem to click.. We were fishing just fresh dead (SHRIMP) and a few on live shrimp and minnows (peter mullet and small croaker), slow dragging across the bottom in numerous spots along the BILOXI Back Bay Biloxi! Lots of hard fighting drag ripping make ya slap your grand maw runs, lead to some great excitement.
Mostly catch and release, but the avg. were 6-12 sheepshead 3-6lb, 15-25 black drum 4-8lb, couple flounder, reds, specks, (white trout and ground mullet) were thick but we were looking for lil more fight.

I, CAPTAIN; Robert “Earl” McDaniel, would like to thank everyone that trust in the WHIPASNAPA CHARTER BOAT AND IT’S CAPTAIN for there outings into the Gulf of Mexico. It is an honor and a blessing to be able to take so many great people on these great boating adventures.
Thanks everyone for helping out and being patient with fish and capt. sometimes it was a very trying year with the spill and all but hey, soon as we got waters opened back up. Folks jumped right back on and the fishing this year has really been extraordinary!!! So have our guest!! And I believe we gona come out pretty good considering. Right now from my eyes it looks -good-great! Fish, water and all looks very good. So look forward to seeing each of our friends with some of their friends back for more WHIPASNAPA adventures next year!!

MISSISSIPPI: Pinch Me! Very Successful Fishing Continues!

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Pinch Me! Very successful fishing continues!!

Early week had the Fossum family from Pocatello, ID. and they started the WHIPASNAPA CHARTER BOAT (BILOXI,MS) off very strong. Was a catch and release trip which been running quite a few of lately (that’s why the pictures have been down). But most decide to keep a few when I tell them have a few places that will cook their catch for them. Been sending most to Shaggy’s (Pass Christian) and they seem to be doing a fabulous job! Anyway the Fossum started out with some hot action on some very nice ground mullet, white trout(2 at a time) bout as fast as it hit the water. They were on and we were having a blast! After about 2hrs of that we went to the Island where the sharks and big bull reds kept us very happily entertained with some drag ripping runs and a few mad dashes around the boat for another couple hours.

The Hill and Hopp Crew from Cedar Rapids, Iowa had a blast on a 4hr light tackle excursion also were flounder (couple really nice ones), reds, black drum, white trout, and ground mullet once again made for some hot action. Even had 2 really nice SOW drum for a photo fish! Boy; people can’t believe I use the big ol $3.50lb shrimp to feed to the fish, but hey whatever it takes to catch quality fish for our guest. They took a good amount of them over to Shaggy’s for some extremely fine eating!!!!!!!!!!

The Mikes,(Westmoreland from Virgina) and (Mong from Gulport) also did the 4hr light tackle trip Sunday and about the same. A lot of hard battling reds, bet we had 10 between 16 & 18″ but only 1 over; a pile of puppy drum 4 to 5lb which fight and taste just as good. Really great times, beautiful weather on a great boat with a good fish bite and good companionship.WOW!!!!! PINCH ME!!!!!!

Times really wrapping up quickly for this fishtastic 2010 season. For the most part I am booked the rest of the snapper days think have 1 Friday left. But a few of the trips or welcoming guest to join so contact us and lets see if we can get you HOOKED UP::::all day offshore for 150 its worth that all day long trust me…

FLORIDA: Snook, Reds & Trout Action in Sarasota

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Anglers fishing with me on my flats skiff the Snook Fin-Addict, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key, caught and released tarpon, snook, reds, trout, bluefish and Spanish mackerel during the past several weeks. I traveled to Stuart during week of 7/18 to fish the 11th annual DOA Outdoor Writers Festival. It is a fun filled event that matches guides with outdoor writers from around the country. The area is known for its big snook and trout and this year was no exception.

Snook to 44″ were caught and released in the St. Lucie Inlet on DOA shrimp and TerrorEyz. There were also a pair of trout in the 10-lb class caught and released on DOA baits in the Indian River near Ft. Pierce. Anglers fishing with me waded a couple of flats close to the inlet one day and fished the inlet another day. We caught and released several snook to 30″ on CAL jigs with shad tails and rootbeer DOA TerrorEyz in the St. Lucie Inlet.

Back in Sarasota, Clark Keator, from Orlando, FL, jumped his first tarpon on a fly and had another bite on a trip in the coastal gulf. Dean Hannemann, from Sarasota, FL, had good action jumping several tarpon and landing one on flies on another trip. Joe and Mitchell White, from Tallahassee, FL, fished a pre dawn/flats trip in Sarasota Bay with me and landed several snook around Siesta Key docks and more than 30 trout to 4-pounds, bluefish and ladyfish near Whale Key on CAL jigs with shad tails and DOA Deadly Combos. David Hilton, from the UK, also fished a pre dawn/flats trip with me recently and caught and released several snook to 24″, trout to 18″, Spanish mackerel and ladyfish on flies near Bishop Point. Anglers on another trip in the coastal gulf had only a few shots at tarpon but jumped 2 and had another bite on flies.

I was gone again for a family vacation to NC but returned in time to take Vic Cook, from Columbus, OH, out for a morning of fishing on Sunday. We fished a couple docks before dawn on Siesta Key where Vic caught and released several snook, trout and ladyfish on my Grassett Snook Minnow fly. We moved to deep grass flats near Bishop Point at dawn and found the action slow. We caught only a few ladyfish and trout on a fly popper/Clouser Combo before moving on. With a flood high tide that was dropping fast, we hunted for reds in skinny water near Long Bar. It wasn’t long before we found them and Vic was hooked up to a big red on an Enrico Puglisi Everglades Special fly. He landed the 28″ red and hooked another, to complete his Sarasota Bay slam (red, snook and trout) with a fly!

Tarpon are thinning out in the coastal gulf but they are aggressive and are still worth taking a look. They are moving into Sarasota Bay around bridges and on deep grass flats in many of the same areas where we find trout, blues and mackerel. With the water temperature at 89 degrees in now in Sarasota Bay, there is a narrow window for a few hours in the morning when action is best. Predators have been herding glass minnows into “bait balls” and feeding heavily in them. The action usually starts with ladyfish and the longer it lasts, trout, blues, Spanish mackerel and tarpon will join the frenzy. This happens shortly after the sun rises and only lasts for a couple of hours before the bait and predators go deep.

This time of year I often snook fish for a couple of hours before dawn, which is the coolest time of day, and then move to the flats for fast action with trout, blues, mackerel, tarpon and more.

LOUISIANA: Dularge Trout and Reds

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Day 1 with James Wheeler, Ben Ratcliff, and Bo Lively from Monroe.

No tide movement made for slow trout fishing today as we picked at the trout all morning never finding the bite I had expected (like Monday). We accepted our defeat from the trout and decided to turn the table and look for reds. All it took was one stop as we found the reds STACKED!!!! It only took us about one hour to put our limit of reds in the boat.

LSU Chubs was the bait of choice for both trout and reds.

Always a pleasure fishing with these guys, looking for a better bite for day 2.

TEXAS: Tickled Pink With the Condtions Mother Nature Blessed Us With

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

There was some fog on the water and hardly a wisp of air and absolutely clear skies.  I LOVE IT!!!!  Finally some prefect conditions!!

I quickly reached my first destination.  I came off plane as i spotted a couple of groups of reds up against a shoreline.  What we experieced for the next 6 hours was simply SPECTACULAR!!!  From the minute i started poling the Curlew around, we went from pod of red fish to pod of redfish never having more than a 30 second wait between fish.  One of the guys got off to wade while i poled the other one.   After catching several reds, they guys swichted turns being poled.  I pole no more that 150 yards the entire morning.  I could seen groups of reds tailing all up and down that shorline and could see them busing bait all around us.   The Mother Lagoon opened her arms and showed us her bounty today.  This was the first trip down here for these two gentlemen and I made sure to tell them not to expect this everytime. LOL    We stopped fishing around 1:00 for a quick lunch and then the guys decided they had had enough of the action in this venue.  The fish were still going off, but they wanted to see the much talked about east side sand action. So we left pods redfish, tailing reds, hungry reds, an abundance of reds…… Embarrassed  to try to find more reds? Huh?
Yep.

the wind was still fairly calm and as soon as i reached the east side i knew things were going to be tough. there was a beautiful slick bay all around with a few reds scattered here and there.  There is something about calm glassy conditions at around noon or so that make those fish as spooooooky as can be.  I started poling a section of the sand and saw a few fish that i thought we would get a chance to cast to. NOT…those fish wouldn’t let us get to withing 150 fee of them before bolting away.  We could never get a good cast on them.  We finally decided to call it a day around 2:00.   The clients cought almost 28-30 reds on flyrod with a lot more that just came off.   it was an amazing morning that i dont really think i will see again for a long time, but i hope i’m wrong about that.

Saturday,
I hit that same venue again, but with not the same results.  I picked up Joe and his friend Jerry at their condo on SPI. we hit the water and soon were on several groups of fish.  Joe limited out farly quickly, but Jerry was trying to get his first red on a fly rod.  he hooked up to several Ladyfish, but the reds were just beyond his casting ability. he commented that he needed about another 10-15 feet on every cast.  He promised to work on his double haul so he can be ready next time.   Jerry finally got into the action after i decided to pole him around and spot some fish for him.  we sight casted to few fish off the boat then called it a day farily early.  They had some family back at their condos and didn’t want to spend their entire day just fishing.  oh well…..bye bye fish.

Monday
once again, the action was not nearly what friday was, however, there were still plenty of fish in that same venue. The guys limted out within the hour and then proceeded catch and release the rest of the day.   i moved one time that morning  and fished another venue for an hour or so.  took it in around noon.

Total fish caught: 16 reds.

Georgia: Shark Fishing Remains Good

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Shark fishing remains good in area sounds and just offshore. Black tip, Hammerhead, Bull, Lemon and Nurse Sharks are but a few of the different types that roam local waters. Sharks are great fun to catch and everyone likes catching a big fish.

A few Tarpon have been sighted; usually they show up in good numbers the first week in July. Tarpon may be the most sought after sport fish. They fight like a bull, have great stamina, and put on an air show you would not believe. Tarpon and Sharks can be taken in the same areas with the same fishing technique. The only adjustment that must be made is switching from 150 pound wire leader used when Shark fishing to 150 pound mono leader for Tarpon. You will lose a few Sharks, but the mono does not spook the Tarpon.

Tripletail fishing has slowed but the fish are still here but scattered. The best bet is to fish a line of markers with live shrimp. Tripletails are also known as Eddy fish because the will nose up to markers on the on the down current side, or in the eddy created by the marker. Sometimes they can be seen near the surface, other times they are deeper and cannot bee seen. Fishing the markers is a two man job; one runs the boat and the other fishes. Position the boat up current of the marker. The fisherman stands in the front of the boat and casts to the marker, letting the bait drift by. If the cork goes down the boat driver puts the boat in reverse and helps pull the fish away from the marker, otherwise the fish will wrap the leader around the marker and break off. Make six or eight casts to each marker before moving on.

Trout, Redfish, Flounder and Whiting continue to be taken in area sounds and along area beaches. Sid Painter caught 11 Trout, two of which were three plus pounds, June 7th. Sid was chucking jigs. All the above species can be taken on live shrimp. Mud minnows also make a good bait; Flounder ever prefer minnows to shrimp. Whiting and Reds can be taken on dead as well as live shrimp and squid..

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.

In Other Fishing News:

June 5-6, 2010 “In the Water Fishing School” I, Capt. Rick Bennett and four other of the best local guides are putting on this school on. This school will be real-time hands on fishing experience! There will be one day of hands on classroom instruction and the next day on the water, real-time fishing experience. The school is limited to the first 24 participants! If you want to learn from the best local guides and see how we do it, take the time to check it out; RodmanCharters *We only have a few spots left for this School!!! I’m really looking forward to being part of this school!

FLORIDA: Indian River Lagoon – Big Reds

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Catfish Run Wild on the St. John’s River
Every spring, big blue and channel catfish invade the upper reaches of the St. Johns River on their annual spawning run right here in Central Florida. Rising water levels and fast currents provided for some of the best catfish fishing experienced all year, which was evident during the recent filming of the Ultimate Catch fishing show hosted by Captain Eric Ciocher. During the filming of the show, Captains Eric Ciocher and Tom Van Horn caught a good number of 10 pound plus catfish. The action was non stop all day, and should make for another exciting and informative adventure caught on film.

The show will be featured on the Sportsman Channel. Here are the air-times and dates for Ultimate Catch on Sportsman Channel Network: Tuesday June 15 1:00 AM, Wednesday June 16 9:00 AM, Saturday June 19 7:00 PM, Sunday June 20 3:30 AM. Past episodes can also be viewed at any time online

As the days grow hotter, fishing in all areas of Central Florida heats up as well. On the St. Johns River, the fresh water catfish bite continues to provide consistent action, which was the case when I fish with Melvin from Apopka, Florida, and during the filming of the Ultimate Catch fishing show. The best results came from fishing on the bottom in the deeper bends of the river using fresh pealed shrimp as bait.

On the inshore waters of the Banana River Lagoons’ No-Motor Zone, light westerly breezes provided some calm conditions for a change and some great sight fishing opportunities. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of fishing with my good friends Captain Chris Myers and Doug Olander, editor of Sport Fishing Magazine. The water conditions were very good compared to a week ago when we were blown out by strong southeast winds.

The top-water action has picked up, as schools of finger mullet and ladyfish have returned for the summer, and at one location I was receiving multiple strikes on every cast. Our main objective for the day was to sight fish over size redfish on lures, and as we moved deeper into the zone we located a large school. In our case, locating the fish required some searching , which was the easy part, getting them to eat proved to be even harder.

Near-shore along the beach, the pogie (Atlantic menhaden) pods have arrived and the tarpon and big yellow jacks are begriming to show up, and there are still some manta rays and cobia around. I also received good reports on tripletail and Spanish mackeral.

Also, be sure to check out the May addition of Coastal Angler Magazine Orlando in print and online for free at CoastalAnglerMagazine.com

Asalways, if you need information or have any questions, please contact me.

Good luck and good fishing

LOUISIANA: Great Trout Bite

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

Well folks today is the day we have all been waiting for!

Capt Bill Lake and I hit the coast early this morning and was greeted with calm winds and pretty green water. Our first stop had the trout jumping in the boat on Saltwater holographic minnows and top-waters. Capt Bill threw top-waters early this morning and was rewarded with several fish in the three pound range. Once our bite slowed down we made another move to find what we were really looking for!! Trout one after another jumping in the ice chest. The trout could not resist our Holographic minnows and were literally SLAMMING them. We only caught a hand full of fish on the glow chubs. After catching our fifty fish we played catch and release for a while. Three reds and a sheepshead also made it to the box as lagniappe. NO LIVE bait as usual!!!! Thanks Capt Bill for the great company today.

P.S. Just to let everyone know, things in DULARGE are firing on all cylinders (trout and reds). We are in full swing with no effects of the oil spill. Give us a call now to book your next trip (not many dates left open). My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone being affected by this disaster.
