Truly Terrorizing Tripletails

Got back from almost three weeks at Indian Pass just in time to be stuck on the hill by Tropical Storm Harvey.

Oh well, lots of chores after being gone that will now get done.

My anglers and I had a big time at the pass but the Tarpons were kinda thin there this year. We saw fish every day and put a few in the air for anglers to dance with but never had the "show" with hundreds of fish feeding all around the boat or days of jumping lots of fish.

From Tunas to Tarpon

Today was my last day in Grayton/Seagrove for three weeks.

We are off to Indian Pass tomorrow for the annual Tarpon & Tripletail chase. Word from the guys over there is the fish showed real good several weeks ago and then thinned out with the weather we have had the past week. Tarpon like it hot, dry and calm and should show back up in force by the end of this week if the weather cooperates as predicted.

Snappers, Cobias and Kings, Oh My!

After a few real pretty days I am back on the hill today, Saturday, July 29th with a little blow from a summer cold (?) front.

The Gulf is just rough enough for it not to be fun and the forecast is for nice again tomorrow so it's a short break. The folks I had to cancel on Saturday morning got rained out a few weeks ago though so for them it's been a bad run of weather.

Jumpin' and Jammin' Fishing in July

I know, it's been awhile since I sat down and did a report but the Gulf has been calm, the fish have been biting and I have been steady runnin' every day. This afternoon we had a bunch of thunderstorms pop up that made me cancel my PM trip so I am trying to catch up some.

We have been limiting out on Red Snappers on the Fridays , Saturdays and Sundays they are open. While most are "regular size" I have had some folks catch a few downright BIG Un's the past couple weeks.

Summer Time is Snapper Time

Red Snapper are the main item on just about everybody's fishing list this time of the year.

We are catching a few Groupers, Kings, Vermillions, Mahi, etc., but the main target and desire for most of my anglers are those coveted big Red Snaps. While there do not seem to be a record number of Red Snappers around there have been more than a few really nice ones and some that by any standards are just plain big.

Red Snappers Every Day

The long awaited steady opening of Red Snappers finally came Saturday and there were lots caught.

Some pretty darn big ones too! Now if we can just get this weather to realize it's Summer time and it's supposed to be calm we'll have it all.

Prior to yesterday we have been catching lots of Vermillions along with Kings and Mahi as our target species with great catches of them as well.

Fish Are On The Right Schedule

The weather the past couple weeks has been more like what March should be than May.

We have had a lot of windy days with the breeze mainly out of the West rather than East as usual for this time of year. When it's been pretty it's been perfect but the opening weekend of Red Snapper season was anything but perfect.

Only a couple Grayton boats tried to fish on Saturday. Captain Mike of "Trigger Happy" went out and told me the next morning he felt like he had gone 10 rounds in the ring with Mike Tyson. It was rough!
