Big Black Drum biting
January 15, 2021
On a sparkling day down in the 10,000 Islands, Dan from Wisconsin brought his 2 sons fishing, and again the rods were bent all day on trout, countless ladyfingers, jacks, and mangrove snapper, when Dad's jig suddenly stopped and felt like it hung up on something...instead of a snag, he had hooked this big goon which took off, bulldawged deep, and then ripped drag on the ultra light for a spirited 10 minute escape attwmpt, before being arrested for attempted bait theft. Not sure what's going on down there, but these big bruisers, which are cousins to the redfish, that some say taste better too, have been more common in the past month than I can remember. They love jigs hopped on the bottom, and they create a big smile every time they roll over and show themselves during a fight. Under maritime Ordinance OU-812, this thug was sentenced lay with Mangrove Snapper in the Fish Jail before being sent to hard labor on the cast iron blackening skillet! #blackdrum #blackdrumfishing
Spotted Seatrout are Biting
January 14, 2021
Pat from Minnesota brought the boys out on a cold wet morning and did what Minnesota boys do in the cold-put a load of meat in the boat! We worked some shorelines, bars and cuts deep down around the Fakahatchee Bay with @indian_pass_outfitters jigs and beat down some nice speckled seatrout, ladyfingers, snapper, jack crevalle and a nice black drum on a quick morning out of Goodland. Time to recharge the Bubba Blade batteries! #naplesguide #naplesflorida #naplesfishingguide #naplescharterfishing #naplesinshorefishing #mangrovesnapper #marcofishing #marcoisland #marcoislandguide #marcofishingcharter #marcoislandfishingguide #marcoislandinshorefishing #10000islandsflorida #10000islandsfishing #10000islandscharters #10000islandsinshorefishing #10000islandsnationalwildliferefuge #jewfish #spottedseatrout #blackdrum #blackdrumfishing #jigfishing #southerngentlemenfishing
Loading the boat every day in the 10,000
January 12, 2021
past 2 weeks and there is no red tide south of Coon Key, but the best part, is zero boat traffic. No better way to spend the day, than on a shallow wreck in glassy waters, or deep in the maze of islands, bouncing jigs in the back bays and cuts, catching 50 plus fish a day! Pat and his son Austin got to get into a meat festival today on the shallow wrecks...the water was once again glass, and when I say glass, I mean not even a ripple. Shrimp on split shots totally outfished threads and shiners for a mess of sheepshead, trout, very nice red, and several snook that were released. My new electric Bubba Blade finally met a challenge that required a mid-cleaning battery change, and these two fishermen rolled out with two fully packed ziploc freezer bags full of meat.
