January 2019 Fishing

Ted Gibson

Little break after the holidays, so time to update the fishing report. The fishing on the half day trips has been improving. Still plenty of Grunts or “Silver Snapper” around, but we are starting to see more Mangrove Snapper and Sheepshead as well. There has also been a surprising number of sharks in the 2’-4’ range present which is a good size on light gear for people that haven't caught one before. The only problem is one decided to take a bite out of my chum bag last week.

The last full day trip I did was on January 9. We knew a front was coming in later on in the day, but my crew wanted to try and sneak out before it arrived. Unfortunately for us the weather arrived a little sooner than we expected and we had to run home in 5’ seas. The seas were out of the west, so the ride in wasn't that terrible.

The fishing was decent where we ended up despite the weather. We fished approximately 37 miles West Southwest of Wiggins Pass. We caught: Bonita, Kingfish, and Mangrove Snapper. We did get some Red Grouper, but they were all undersized that day unfortunately. Due to the conditions it was one of those days where we were targeting “whatever wants to bite.” At the ended of the day we tried “one more spot” over a wreck and within 15 minutes we ended up putting a 30 pound cobia on the deck to end the day as well as a large Goliath Grouper ~300 pounds that we tagged and released.

I update the Facebook Page more often than this section of our website, so if you would like a more up to date report follow the link below!

Early December Fishing

Ted Gibson

We were out on full days Friday and Saturday before the cold front arrived. Friday the weather was far from calm, but my guys wanted to go out anyways. We ran out to 90’ and were able to catch multiple short Red Grouper, 1 Keeper Red Grouper, 2 King Mackerel, 2 Goliath Grouper, and a pile of Vermillion Snapper.

Saturday the weather was a lot better! We ran to a different location trying to find some larger red grouper. We fished a little shallower than on Friday and went to about 80 foot. The Red Grouper Fishing was great Saturday and we ended up catching 5 keepers (only one shy of our limit). Saturday also produced a pile of nice sized lane snapper and porgies. We also brought up two Goliath Grouper. Several Amberjacks were hooked as well, but we were unable to bring any to the boat.

September Half Day Fishing Naples

Ted Gibson

Went out on a half day charter with a group of 4 yesterday.  The good news is there are still fish out there to be caught!  My day started off early getting down to Wiggins and trying to catch some live bait.  Went straight out to 18' of water where some birds were working and used a Sabiki rig to catch Threadfin Herring.  I then went to the beach where there were literally thousands and thousands of Pilchards (small ones).  We fished multiple spots from 3-12 miles offshore.  We caught Mangrove Snapper, Grunts, Blue Runners, Gag Grouper, Pork Fish, Spanish Mackerel, and had a shark on for a few minutes.   It was good just to catch some fish after the red tide.  It was also good to see the bait starting to show back up again.  Fishing should continue to get better!
