Hide with the fish

Trip Info

Summary

Wind, and cooler temperatures this morning.  Captain Andrew had a trip planned and decided to work around the weather.  A rainy start after gathering bait.  With a live well full, you just can’t waste it.  They set off and decided to hide in one of our amazing canal systems in Port Charlotte.  When the weather picks up the fish tend to hide in there too.

On the boat today was Wayne & Shierly Nichols.  Wayne runs Red Eye Safari , and is a great local hunting guide.  They are newlyweds and we’re looking for a fun day on the water, some fish to tug back on the lines would be great too!

Today they are using free lined live bait on a circle hook and various soft plastics.  All kinds of live bait works in this type of fishing. Pin fish, shrimp, green backs, threadfins, and sugar trout.  These canals are vast, and full of all kinds of marine life.  Throw your bait under docks and around pilings/bridges for best result.  These guys toughed out the less than perfect start to the day and were rewarded with a few nice catches!
