https://www.captdaves.com/rates/ - 6 hr. DAYS STANDARD, IN WINTER
Today wasn't all that cold. And despite the forecast, wasn't all that windy till late in the day. It was pretty pleasant.
W-A-Y, too many people around for a Thursday!! Guess, no one really works anymore. Wait till ''socialism'' hits. Oh my gawd. You'll be out of a j-o-b, or you'll just get free money to sit on your butt, next.
We departed at 7am. And the first spot was d-e-a-d. A spot that would in years past that would be a tournament winning Trout spot!! But, have watched it go into decline over the past few years. WHY? I have no idea. RIVER DREDGING/DESTRUCTION?
SPOT #2: 20 plus Trout, to get 4-5 keepers in the ''fish bag''. And they only ranged from 15 to a max of 16-1/2 inches.
Too make a long story short, we fished all day for a 2 person limit of 10. So many throw back ''shorts''. Had one yellowmouth and threw back only a few nuisance mangrove snappers and a potato chip Flounder.
-so many, at just 15-16''
This trip with Paul and his son Travis was on it's 5th ''re-schedule'' do to them wanting to Sheepshead fish with fiddler crabs. But, there has been any fiddler crabs, and each day we discussed going was 20 plus knots of wind. (they are local)
Non-locals, will get the day they pick. I'm tired of bouncing people around and loosing days. So, if you don't care about the weather. Neither will I. We'll just have to do the best we can with what we're given, and the date you choose.
HELPFUL HINTS FOR WINTER FISHING:
