2014 comes to a close and we begin a new year with hopes and resolutions for a better year in 2015. We had lots of fun adventures this past year that created many good memories for lots of anglers. I hope your year has been successful and that the coming New Year brings you many more exciting fishing adventures!
This past week, I met with quite a few old friends on the water and made some new ones as well. The weather has been outstanding lately and so has the fishing. I hope you have had the chance to get out and enjoy it! The bite around the area has been excellent for our trips and provided lots of action for the anglers. We have enjoyed a large variety of species with the warmer water in the river. Redfish, black drum and sheepshead have topped the list just about every day. Throw in a mix of snapper, mackerel, pompano and a host of others and you have a fun filled morning for all of our anglers. It's been exciting!
Our redfish have come from docks and mangroves again this week. DOA shrimp or live bait can find some nice fish for you. The redfish have been a good bite for us lately. Sherman and David topped off our week with 8 redfish along with many sheepshead, drum, trout and even a nice pompano. The trout bite has started to pick up for us. Grass flats around Harbor Branch, Bear Point and Queen's Cove have all been productive on DOA shrimp, CAL jerk baits or live baits. Black drum, sheepshead and snapper have been plentiful around the area. Docks, bridges and channel edges have all been great places to look for these fish. Live or dead shrimp is the choice for lots of anglers. It's been a great week on the water for us!
Remember, fishing is not just another hobby....it's an ADVENTURE!
Happy New Year to everyone!
Good Fishing and Be Safe!
