10/20 - CALMED way down.......

Had Angelo V. a local Navy fella, his Mom and Bob visiting from Michigan aboard the Jettywolf today. I was hoping the front would calm down, and it did. The ocean laid flatter. And as the day went on, the wind even laid down.

And guess what was back......."the hordes of Mullet, but this time they were hugging tight to the jetty rocks in what looked like back on Thursday. An endless stream of baitfish!!!"

We no sooner anchored up for the second time. First time I just wasn't right. "And that always bugs me." So when we got just right, we used cut Mullet. Only because I didn't have an endless supply this morning at the dock, they were a bit harder to catch. So we had to make them last.




























Using small cut pieces, Bob was the first to hook up. Oh, how these Reds make people freak out. Being a Speckled Trout kinda guy and being a fish fry kinda guy, afterwards. I know that these Reds won't last like this. So no matter what, we have to get on them.

Again, 2 ounces of lead was used. No giant tackle either!














 

Everyone got their chance and we even had at least two or three "double headers" (two big fish on at once!) And finally, we started catching a few Sharks. Mini Blacktips. And a few larger that ate through a leader or two, on the first run.

But Angelo's Mom was the one who scored a KEEPER. A perfect 24 incher, for the fish box. And as usual, the 12-15" Yellowmouth Trout, were chewing on live and cut Mullet and hitting the ice filled fish box.

 


 
Oh...I forgot to mention. But back on Thursday. The guys even had 13-14 inch Speckled Trout out in the sand way off the rocks in 30+ feet of water. So the Specks are gonna show as time goes on.

Personally, I lost count of Redbass. Just like on Thursday I estimated between 25-35 of them. Today, at least 10-15 had to be caught? Or more??

We went back and forth between cut bait and live bait. And let me tell ya, sometimes it just didn't matter.

Everyone was hooking up.

 


 
We ended the day with the largest Red at around 35 pounds. It kicked Bobs butt!  It was all out mayhem at times. I was mult-tasking my butt off. Tieing leaders, untangling, un-birds-nesting, making a move and dragging the anchor, pinning on baits......whewwwww. It was GREAT!

IF YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON THIS FISHING. BLAME NO ONE, BUT YOUR DIALING FINGER FOR NOT CALLING ME!!

RIGHT NOW IS SOME OF THE BEST OF THE BEST. THERE'S SO MANY OTHER "GUIDES" THAT DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT THIS IS GOING ON.

LIGHT TACKLE, LIGHT SINKERS, LIVE OR CUT BAIT.  FILL THE BOX WITH A FEW KEEPER REDS, AND THE CRACKS INBETWEEN WITH PERFECT FISH FRY SIZE YELLOWMOUTHS. ADD IN A FEW SPECKS, JACKS, TARPON ROLLING ALL OVER THE PLACE. BLACKTIP SHARKS, JUMPING, SPECKLED TROUT IN 34' OF WATER, DAMN I LOVE IT.

IT'S SO ON!
