Offshore of Yankeetown Fishing Report With Good Friends

What Are Friends For? To Go Fishing With!

captain_lance_galmourHey Everyone, Mother Nature has been very nice to us offshore anglers lately, and she has allowed me to roam to some of my deep water haunts.

This trip was with some good friends of mine and their family. Russ did a complete over haul on the motor on my little truck and would not take any money for it, but asked if I would take him and some family members offshore fishing for the day. They had a great time and put a lot of fish in the boat of all verities.

The action was so good through out the day that I didn’t get a chance to snap many photos, but if you look at the pic-nic table………….there’s 10 feet of fillets ! ! !

September is almost upon us and that is when our fall fishing starts to pick up, so get with all of your fishing buddies and family members to get some dates together.

FOR THE MONTH OF SEPT. THESE ARE THE DATES I CAN FISH —?SEPT. 1st through 11th — 19th & 20th — 26th & 27th ! ! !

I have a BFCT fire class that I must attend for my State Job that I will be at during the week ONLY ! ! ! It starts on 9/13 and runs to 10/2, BUT I WILL be available to run on weekends.

Enjoy the pics and hope to hear from you all soon. Take care.

MIDDLE GROUNDS OFFSHORE OVER NITE TRIP

Bait: sardines, thread fin hering, live pin & pig fish

Left the dock around 10:30 am Sunday, with 2-4 ft sea and a 15 kt west wind, it was alittle rough, but we made the 80 mile run in about 3.5 hrs.

1st stop at a wreck, was on fire, amber jacks and grouper, lost some real big fish then the sharks moved in, so we moved on.

Next was some vermilion snapper, mango snapper and porgies, bite was a little slow in afternoon.

Next went to our nite time spot, cooked dinner, got lites all set up, and started fishin. The maongo?s were on fire and red grouper, then red snapper moved in and you could barely get your line down without them snatchin your rod out of your hand.

By 2 am we were limited out on, red snapper & mangos and went to sleep.

Woke up, hit another wreck, and wham, nothing but 20 plus lb red grouper, in 15 minutes we were limited out.

9 am headed back to the dock.

We caught 3 keeper amber jacks ( 40lb each) , 8 red snaper, 32 mangos, 30 vermilon snapper, 8 red grouper, some trigger fish and porgies. Plus we must of thrown back 30 keeper red snaper and red grouper, remember their being over fished! Ya rite.
