Had just what I should have all the time. 2 person trips! The last few days. Which was great. No kids, just adults.
The "NEW" moon and weather this week has been a all out ball buster.
-the new moon is the strongest in the spring and summer,
-the full moon is the strongest in the fall and winter.
I had requests;
On Monday it was all "eating fish", so naturally we tried fishing for Trout.
That was a exercise in futility. And the weather was no help. I even ran damn near to down town, worked a few old trout spots with NO BITES. Ended the day at the jetties, and by really the days end anchored in the river over ROCKS and couldn't give away a live shrimp other than to Mangrove Snappers. Which no one could catch but me.
On Tuesday I had a request for "shark fishing". We got lucky in the 20 kt winds, there was a few shrimp boats close. Miles out was close and it was nasty / rough / over cast and "WET" as we busted over the waves chasing the shrimp boats.
With only a few strikes and catching a few small sharks. This game was really not happening. By days end we sat "over rocks"" again with live pogies out the back of the boat in hopes of a big Redfish. That never happened.
For SPRING TIME IN JAX, this certainly hasn't been one for the record books weather wise.
REALLY TRYING TO GET A SLICK CALM DAY TO GO OFFSHORE A FEW MILES AND TRY OUT MY NEW AND EXCITING FISHING TECHNIQUE ON THE LOCAL SPADEFISH POPULATION.
NO ROD AND REEL REQUIRED!
