4/18 - its 100% official

ITS SPRING TIME...100% TODAY!!

THE MAYPORT JETTIES JUST ''POPPED''

- SPANISH MACKEREL HAVE ARRIVED.


- GLASS MINNOW, THREADFIN HERRING, MULLET, POGIES ARE THERE.

DID A 2 HR. KIDS TRIP TODAY WITH 2 SISTERS, AND ONE OF THEM'S 2 - DAUGHTERS. KEPT IT REAL SIMPLE AS THEY'VE NEVER BOTTOM FISHED IN THE OCEAN BEFORE. ANCHORED OUT IN THE BLUE CLAY BOTTOM OFF THE SOUTH JETTY AND QUICKLY STARTED TO LOAD THE COOLER WITH WHITING. NOT HUGE WHITING, BUT KEEPER FISH.....THEN ONE OF THE KIDS GOT SEAS SICK, SO MOM SAID, ''LETS HEAD IN.''

IF WE HAD MORE TIME, I'M SURE WE COULD HAVE GOT A BLACK DRUM OUT THERE ON THAT SPOT, BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE I'VE CAUGHT MANY BEFORE.

OR WE COULD HAVE TROLLED UP SOME SPANISH MACKEREL. I HAVE THE HARDWARE ON THE BOAT.


























-WANT A SERIOUS TECH TIP:  ''WHEN TROLLING UP SPANISH MACKEREL ON PLANERS AND SPOONS. #1 YOU CAN'T USE THOSE ''FAIRY WAND'' BUGGY WHIP SPINNING RODS. THEY WON'T WORK!!!! A MED HEAVY ACTION TRIGGER CASTING UGLY STIK WILL WORK, OR A KINGFISH ACTION STYLE ROD. AND WHEN TROLLING THE PLANER AND SPOON, MAKE SURE YOU TURN A LOT. ''WE CALL IT THE TURN AND BURN''.....AND GO PRETTY FAST, THE PLANERS WILL DIVE AT DIFFERENT DEPTHS AS YOU PILL THEM AND MAKE TURNS. A SMALL PLANERS IS ALL THATS NEEDED. AND HERE ON EBAY IS WHERE YOU CAN GET MEGA BULK SPOONS CHEAPER:

BUY BULK SHARE WITH A BUDDY.  YEARS WORTH OF INSTANT ACTION!!!!!

USED TO BE ALL THE CHARTER CAPTAINS/GUIDES WOULD BE ''TURNING AND BURNING'' ON THE SPANISH MACKEREL SCHOOLS BACK IN THE DAY. NOW WITH ALL THE ''COOL GUYS'' THAT ARE TOO GOOD FOR THIS FUN FISHING, WHERE THEY ARE SO NEW, THEY DON'T EVEN TRY SUCH A SPORT. THE FANCY BAY BOATS AND TROLLING MOTORS HAVE THEM , ''TOO GOOD'', FOR THIS KIND OF FUN. 

SO, IF YOU TROLL UP THE SPANISH MACS...''YOU'LL BE PRETTY MUCH ALONE'', BECAUSE NOT EVEN THE PUBLIC WEEKENDERS DO IT MUCH ANY LONGER.
