Tough Fishing, But Scallops Can Be Found, Be Prepared To Move

August 27, 2008

Hey Y’all, I am not one to make up a good fishing report. The last few days have been tough fishing, for all species. We found short fish(trout), one keeper red, a couple bluefish. A slow catching day, however, nice weather and calm seas made it a wondeful day to be on the water. Scallops can be found!! Look for clear water, deeper, further south, around Pepperfish. Stop the boat, put your best scout in the water. Prepare to move if your scout is not successful. Back to fishing though. One of my favorite sayings is “you don’t know-if you […]

Tropical Storm Fay: The Good …The Bad,

August 26, 2008

Oklawaha/Freshwater Thanks to Tropical Storm Fay, water levels on the Silver and Oklawaha Rivers have risen dramatically.  On Monday, we did a re-con trip and found the dock at the Ocala Boat Basin about a foot under water.  The Silver River entrance was virtually blocked by downed trees.  We did manage to get down the Oklawaha River a couple of miles, dodging submerged trees and snags most of the way.  Because of the flooded woods, and still rising waters, expect more of these obstructions in the near future.  Be careful.

Scallops & early morning trips for Speckled Trout & Redfish continue to be very productive

August 19, 2008

Scallops continue to be the most dependable resource this summer. Water clarity will become a factor, post rainy days and T.S. Fay. Early morning trips for Speckled Trout and Redfish continue to be very productive using Saltwater Assassin jigs 5″ pink and electric chicken colors. Topwater baits such as mirrorlure top dog or zara spook work well, for those of you who enjoy the strike as much as the pull. These oppurtunities seem to be most productive when you have high tide in the AM. If lucky you’ll be in right place at the right time to enjoy Trout and […]
