2/19 - NOON TILL 7, a great decision!

Had Aaron aboard again. The US Navy gave him a 4 day weekend. So he used Monday at noon, to fish aboard the Jettywolf.

Y-E-S. A noon departure.

Water temps at the Jetties still very low. So low that coming to find out all the Reds, Drum, and Sheepshead are W-A-Y offshore.

Had 2 unknown fella's pull up to the boat ramp, tell me the fog was so thick they bagged it. Were planning on going offshore. Because last week they wacked the Drum, reds, and Sheepshead out on the Ponte Vedra Grounds REEF.  That's 15 or so miles offshore south east of the Jetties!!!!!!!!

And then gave me their entire bucket of fresh fiddler crabs. Which was great. I brought 5 dozen live shrimp and a bucket of  dead shrimp and some frozen clams.

I thought I heard all our 'January Black Drum' are out there. Because they don't seem to be at the Jetties. January or February!

W-o-w, that cold we had sure did put a whoop-ass on the river!

Aaron and I departed the dock at noon and the tide was still high. So we explored the Jetties. (FIRST TIME IN WEEKS, I'VE TURNED THAT DIRECTION)

We didn't make it far. The FOG was super thick. So bad a huge ship passed within a 100 yards and we couldn't see it. Could surely hear it as it laid on the fog horn constantly.

The air turned really cold! and between the boat ramp and the start of the south Jetty. The water temp was DROPPING!!! 

So, we turned around and headed past the Dames Point Bridge. YEP...and as we went, the water temp climbed and climbed.

By the time the tide turned, way down there. We had a NINE DEGREE WATER TEMP DIFFERENCE  between the high tide water at the Jetties and the low tide water south of the Dames Point Bridge.

W-O-W!  

Needless to say, the low tide this week is later and later in the day. So, it was a good day to fish it late. NO ONE AROUND.  Seemed everyone did the "Willy Weekender" deal start at sun-up and were all gone by noon to three.

The east breeze laid down, and it was GREAT!!! for us.

Started the day playing with the Nursery school Sheepshead. Aaron lost a few massive fish (a huge sheepshead, a Redfish and maybe another Sheepshead)
"He's learning."  He has the disease!  The fishing addiction!

He got redemption and got a big Sheepshead at 6 plus pounds. His largest ever.

We float-rig fished the live shrimp and "vertical fished" the fiddler crabs.

Didn't get any BIG reds to the boat. But caught a good share of Trout, small Yellowmouths, and enough Sheepshead.

We split the day up and tried to do as much of the 2 different types of fishing as we could till the BUGS ran us out of one spot and we hit the dock in the dark. And used my big LED handheld lights to clean fish by. I backed the boat into it's shed at 8pm.  Yeah, not common for me. But, so worth it!

"JETTYWOLF LIVE" - 2/15/2018

DISCUSSING THE OUTU MULTI-TOOL.
AND WHY IT'S NOW THIS ANGLERS EDC - ''every day carry'' in my AFTCO Shorts pliers pocket.

I'M VERY IMPRESSED FOR A WHOPPING $14.00. COULD THEY MAKE IMPROVEMENTS???
YES.

AND HERE'S MY THOUGHTS ON MY AMAZON REVIEW: https://www.amazon.com/review/RHXKCBM...

''FIVE STARS FOR PRICE AND QUALITY, VIA A FISHERMAN'S PROSPECTIVE, SCISSORS, KNIFE AND PLIERS. FANTASTIC. ALL SEEMINGLY WELL BUILT. COULD THESE BE IMPROVED FOR THE FISHERMAN, STILL.

Y-E-S!

-THE FILE COULD BE ON ONE SIDE A DIAMOND DUST LIKE SURFACE FOR FINE TUNING A HOOK POINT.
-THE SCISSORS, COULD HAVE A FINE SERRATION, TO ASSIST IN CUTTING BRAIDED FISHING LINE.

IF THOSE TWO THINGS WERE DONE, AND THE PRICE WAS US $20, THESE STILL WOULD BE A SUPERIOR VALUE.

AS THEY STAND NOW. THESE ARE MY NEW 'EDC'' MULTI TOOLS....(I BOUGHT TWO)

WORTH THE PRICE. NO I'M NOT SOME URBAN OUTDOORSMAN PREPARING FOR THE APOCALYPSE. JUST A PROFESSIONAL LONG TIME FISHING GUIDE. LOOKING FOR A INEXPENSIVE EVERY DAY CARRY, COMPACT TOOL, TO DO LIGHT JOBS.''

2/14 - LUV ON THE HOOK....Valentines day!

Can't say I ever charter fished on my birthday before. For many years me and my Pop's would head south to the big Miami Boat Show that's held over this week.

We did that for years and years. But it now is so expensive to go & stay, it's out of a Jacksonville Fishing Guides budget.

Was supposed to take Pierre out on Monday, but switched to today because he thought maybe his son could come along. But that fell through. So he went all by himself.

So with another day of a crew of one. I headed out in the deep fog at 8am.

A dozen or so Trout, and 4 big Redfish over 30 inches. We finally had to call it quits because Pierre needed to get on the road for some visits to S. Florida.

BUT...if ya are doing a one person charter. YOU will make out. Because I can be your "ringer". And help you out when it comes to fish in the box. "extra fish in the B-O-X!"

Here's a few photos, I took:
