Empty Beaches, Great Fishing & Snappers To Come

The annual migration of the tourist families back North has happened with the onset of a new school year. The beaches are empty and as much as everyone who lives here enjoys having the visitors it sure is nice to have "our" beach back to ourselves! I got to take 4 days off and went over to Indian Pass and St Joe bay for a break. The Scallopin' was great and I had a blast swimming in the Bay 3 days in a row and eating some Fine fresh Scallop dinners.

Tarpon & Tripletails - Fishing at Indian Pass

Just got back to Seagrove from 9 days at Indian Pass. I got to run 6 Tarpon trips and we put 5 to the boat and jumped off one more. The biggest fish was about 165 pounds and the smallest about 100 pounds. There seem to be plenty of fish but they have not really "ganged up" any where. Spending the time to run and look for a feed seems to be the best option this year.

Fish Everywhere!

I know it's been a couple of weeks since I wrote but I have been working 14-15 hours a day, running 2 trips every day and cleaning fish for hours.

To say that fishing has been easy is putting it mildly. LOTS of big Red Snappers (had a 20-pound fish today).

Plenty of Kings with a lot in the 25 to 40 pound range. A few groupers around, plenty of Amberines and even a few cobia coming through.

Snappers, Snappers, Snappers! Fishing With Captain Larry

Red Snapper season finally opened and we have been having a blast catching some fine ones. All the boats off the beach have been coming in with a good grade of fish.

We have had a bunch of fish in the 12 to 20# class. It's great to be able to throw back a 6 to 8# Snapper and tell the folks that we really want to look for a bigger one to keep!

Runnin' Hard in SoWal

Whew ! I guess the word got out that the fishin's great and the oil is no where near here. I have been steady runnin' and with Snappers fixin' to open it's 2 trips a day as long as this great weather holds. Rather than write a long dissertation I'll let the pictures of our catches speak -
