THIS WEEKS FISHING REPORT:
Feb 17, 2018
We finished out the week with a five-day total catch of 456 fish averaging around 91 fish per day. Species include, flounder, mackerel, BIG Speckled Sea trout and 10 sharks in the 4 to five foot range. Big Fighters. With water temperatures at 78 degrees in the gulf, the sharks are giving birth in the inter-coastal waters again, so I was very careful with each one of them.
The bigger ones look like Fine tooth sharks to me. Bonnet head and sand sharks too. We are still working the grass flat edges where the structure starts to dive from 4.5’/ 5’ to deeper channel waters. Using a 4’ leader under a popping cork, ¼ oz. jig on 30 mono leaders baited with a live shrimp.
MONSTER PIE PLATE POMPANO on the main channel sandbar. Friday, we killed it with multiple big Pompano catches. We usually catch and release, but these guys were invited home to dinner by my clients.
Oh wow, what a sight yesterday. Half way across the channel between Useppa and Part Island, I saw a dog swimming like crazy. I thought it may have fallen off someone’s boat. I wheeled around to find a coyote swimming his heart out. It looked like my advance scared him, so I backed off, not to tax the poor thing. Good Luck little guy. Hope you make it.
I saw a few Tarpon rolling in the inter coastal waters this week and I’m getting fired up. Won’t be long now. Call today to reserve your Tarpon Trip. 239 994 7818.
If you aren’t catching 50 to 80 fish per day, try a Tide Walker Charters teaching charter.
Till next tide, Enjoy the Magic of Florida Fishing.
