Roy and Eli,
Roy and his Son Eli met up with me at the Inlet Marina, part of Sebastian Inlet State Park. They wanted to go offshore and try some bottom fishing. We had a tuff time getting bait but eventually caught enough to head out. We went straight to 80ft. and with in a few minutes Eli had a nice 18lb. Bull Dolphin. He did a great job of fighting that fish to the boat. Roy caught a 9 lb Mangrove Snapper. We had a lot of Cobia coming up to the boat, mostly smaller fish but we did manage to get a keeper. They also caught a few Bonita and a bunch of sharks, a few Seabass, and of course a few missed good fish. The trip was a lot of fun and plenty of action in the morning and early afternoon. Thanks Roy and Eli for fishing with Attitude. It was a pleasure meeting and fishing with you guys.
The weather was perfect for going offshore. Fishing around the Sebastian Inlet has been a little slow, except for the Redfish on the outgoing tide. We started off cast netting our bait for the day and then headed out to the 60ft. stuff. The first fish of the day was a big Snook that Lleyton caught. Larry got a nice Mangrove Snapper. We caught lots of Seabass and had a few Sharks. As the day was close to ending Lleyton hooked up and landed a nice Red Grouper. It was a fun day fishing with McCaskey Family. Thanks for fishing with Attitude!
Chris and Dean
Chris and Dean fished with me last year. We had a great Snook bite last year. This year it was time to try something different. We fished the past two days. The weather has been decent in the mornings. Rain storms in the afternoon has pushed us in a little early. The first day we went bottom fishing. The bite was decent but we were just having one of those days. They caught a few nice fish and lost a few more. Wednesday we went Permit fishing. Thankfully the day went much better. Dean started off with a hot hand, landing the first two Permit. Dean got a nice Sheepshead and also landed a couple of Permit. Dean had the biggest of the day which went 20lbs. It was a good couple of days of fishing with two cool guys. Thanks Chris and Dean it was a pleasure fishing with you again.
David and Bo
With the Snook fishing being so slow, we decided to give bottom fishing a shot. The ocean was a little bumpy on the way out. Once we got out to 90ft. and made a few drifts, I set the anchor, then it was not long until David and Bo were hooking up left and right. They caught a nice King and 2 keeper Grouper and a handful of nice Mangrove Snapper plus a fair share of big fish that took us to school and got away. It was a great bottom bite and as the afternoon approached the winds laid down making for a very nice ride in. Thanks again David for bringing your family fishing with me again this year. It is my pleasure to fish with you and your brothers and father. I Hope you guys had a great dinner and enjoyed the fresh fish.
Jeff and Bruce
The weather has just been perfect for the past few days. Jeff and Bruce from Ohio fished with me last year. Today we headed offshore. We stopped on the inside bar and slow trolled some live bait and caught our limit of kings. Next we headed further out to the 90ft bar. It was a little slow out there, but managed too pull up a nice Red Snapper and a Cobia that was just bit short. We also had a few big fish on that we never seen. Overall, a great day on the water with a couple of cool guys. Thanks again Bruce and Jeff for fishing with Attitude!!!
Chipper and I
The weather was foggy in the morning. Once it cleared up it was a perfect day. The ocean was completely flat. We fished a few different depths and spots. We started off in 60 ft and caught a couple of Red Snapper. Then moved out deeper. We came across a turtle that had a short cobia on it and Manta Ray that had 2 short cobia. No keepers, well the manta went down after the first cast so maybe it had more fish. On the last spot we stopped, I was marking Cobia big time, but could not bring them up for nothing and could not get them to hit. I even had two hard head Croakers. I heard of a few nice Cobia being caught from other boats. So pretty sure that we had under us just couldn’t produce. Some days just aren’t your day!
The Ocean was completely flat today. It was a beautiful day! It don’t get much calmer. I met up with a friend of mine, Robby. We threw the cast net a dozen times and ended up with a good variety of bait. (Pilchards, Pins, Croakers, Mullet, and Pogies) It had been a couple of weeks since I have been offshore and wasn’t sure of what to expect. We fished a few spots in the 60ft. stuff and basically caught one nice Red Snapper, a lot of Seabass, As big nurse Shark, and broke of two god fish that we never seen. Check out the pictures of the Shark! The winds picked up in the late afternoon around 3 p.m. and we headed in.
