Hey 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.
Cedar Key Fishing Report for 7-31, 8-1, 8-2 Saturday, The weather was a little hairy in the am, but it ended up turning out nice.
We started fishin in 45 ft, the grouper were biting good, but there were a lot of shorts, and mostly red grouper.
We then tried 55 ft, got few keepers there, but there sure are a ton of 19 inch red grouper out there. moved out to 70 ft and got the same results, talked to a few more guides and they had the same story.
Sunday, weather was perfect, I had a “sreach for new spots charter“, so we never went any deeper than 55 ft, caught a few keeper reds and 1 gag, but still another day of non stop short grouper, saw alot of bait pods, turtles, good bottom, also tried 38 ft on the way back in, you could barely get your line to the bottom before the red grouper were on your hook, all short but very fat and heavy.
I heard from another guide, who went to 80+ ft and did well with gags, reds and a few red snapper. So you can all the fun you want in close, but most of the keepers right now with these temperatures are out deeper.
Hope You Have Good Luck in All That You Do Captain John
